The extinct language of Etruria, with no known regards to every other language.
Pertaining or relating to Etruria, an ancient country in central Italy, bordering for the Mediterranean labeled as the Tyrrhenian ocean, between Latium and Liguria (including modern Tuscany), or even its inhabitants, and especially with their society and art.
An epithet erroneously put on Greek painted vases. This application, beginning in the eighteenth century, before the research of archæology had made much advance, continues to be used among persons whoever ideas about these subjects are acquired from books. Wedgwood had this use within mind when he called his works Etruria.
