Euʹgubine Tables

.

Seven bronze tables found near Euguʹbium (Gubbio) in Italy, in 1444. Of the inscriptions, five are Umbrian and Etruscan, and two are Latin.

“The Umbrian, the tongue of north-eastern Italy, is yet more fully represented to us by the Eugubine tablets … supposed to be as old as the third and fourth centuries before our era.”—W. D. Whitney: Study of Languages, lecture vi. p. 220.
