Old Italic script

The Old Italic alphabet was used for letters of different languages ​​on the Italian peninsula. It is based on the Greek alphabet in a western variant and was adopted by the Greek settlers in Kyme. It served as the basis for the Latin alphabet and was also used actually for other languages, including with a variant of the Etruscan language, the Venetian, as well as a number of languages ​​of the Italic branch of the Indo-European family of languages ​​, including the Oscan language and the Umbrian language.
