Umbrian

Umbrian is a dead language formerly used in Umbria, Italy.

It is known primarily from the Tabulæ Iguvinæ (Iguvium = Gubbio[?]), seven bronze plates which contain some notes on the ceremonies and statutes for priests.

Currently, the term is used to indicate the regional dialect of the Italian language.
