A new Etruscan inscription was discovered in Poggio Colla, an ancient settlement near the town of Vicchio, located in the Italian region of Tuscany. According to archaeologist Gregory Warden (Southern Methodist University, Dallas), the text, containing at least 70 legible letters and punctuation marks, may be a sacred law referring to a deity worshipped at the local temple and is being studied by the eminent etruscologist Rex Wallace (University of Massachusetts Amherst).
