Etruria

Recommended Posts

After reading Britannica there are two salient facts about the Etruscans that are think are important.  One, they referred to the country they are in as "Etruria."  I've seen the word before on a map of the Roman Republic in the Oxford History of the Roman World.  I didn't know if it was the name the Etruscans used themselves or just what a historian called their territory.  It's about the size of a European Duchy.  Second, their original city in Italy is called "Villanova."

These facts are not covered in Herodotus's The Histories.
