The Etruscans were much concerned with divination, whether by watching the flight of birds, or examining the entrails of sacrificial victims. This bronze liver shows the organ divided into the different sections for each god, which must all have had specific meanings for the augur.
The Etruscan language has been difficult to analyze. Long thought an isolate, consensus now holds that it is related to languages in the Alps and the Aegean island of Lemnos. It was superseded by Latin and was written in an alphabet derived from the Greek alphabet; this alphabet was the source of the Latin alphabet. It is also believed to be the source of certain important cultural words of Western Europe such as 'military' and 'person,' which do not have obvious Indo-European roots.
