The Euboean alphabet was used in the cities of Eretria and Chalkis and in related colonies in southern Italy, notably in Cumae and in Pithekoussai.It was through this variant that the Greek alphabet was transmitted to Italy, where it gave rise to the Old Italic alphabets, including Etruscan and ultimately the Latin alphabet.

Some of the distinctive features of the Latin as compared to the standard Greek script are already present in the Euboean model.

The inscription of the so-called Cup of Nestor, found in Ischia; Euboean alphabet, 8th century BC. Ancient Rome was an Italic civilization that began on the Italian Peninsula as early as the 8th century BC.

Located along the Mediterranean Sea and centered on the city of Rome, it expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world with an estimated 50 to 90 million inhabitants (roughly 20% of the world’s population) and covering 6.5 million square kilometers (2.5 million sq mi) during its height between the first and second centuries AD.

It is the standard script of the English language and is often referred to simply as “the alphabet” in English.

It is a true alphabet which originated in the 7th century BC in Italy and has changed continually over the last 2500 years. Slowly the Latin alphabet became increasingly standardized.

Writing direction settled on left-to-right toward the 5th or 4th century BCE, and letter shapes became more or less the same in Latium. Latium is the region of central western Italy in which the city of Rome was founded and grew to be the capital city of the Roman Empire. The Etruscans, from their home region of Etruria (modern day Tuscany) exerted a strong cultural and political influence on Latium from about the 8th century BC onward. The Latin alphabet is the main writing system in use in the Western world and is the most widely used alphabetic writing system in the world. The Latino-Faliscan languages are a group of languages that belong to the Italic language family of the Indo-European languages. Latin and Faliscan belong to this group, as well as two others often considered to be archaic Latin dialects, Lanuvian and Praenestine.
