The Pyrgi Gold Tablets
In 1981, when I had finished the basic work on the Etruscan
words and phrases, showing declension and conjugation patterns,
etc., I was not able to use the Pyrgi Gold Tablets. The photos
available to me in various books were simply unreadable. Only
with the advent of a scanner, which I use daily to update my site,
was I able to view the tablets with sufficient confidence to dare
a rendering, wrapping the text into the rest of my Etruscan_Phrases.html.
The following are my renderings of the two texts, with words assigned
locater numbers, which are followed by scans of the actual photos.
Please send me to N-1 through N405, Eugubine.html
Please send me to N406 through Q1, Eugubine.2html
Please send me to Q84-Q797ff, Eugubine3.html
Please send me to Script "R" : Eugubine4.html
Please send me over to Scripts2.html,

Please send me over to scripts which are primarily
from tombs and tombstones: Miscellaneous_Scripts.html
