Re: CONLANG Digest - 8 Nov 2000 (metathesis, 'foied vino'..)

    I thought "Foied vino..." was a _Faliscan_ inscription?  (Faliscan being,
 yes, close to Latin, but not Latin nonetheless...)

    Actually, when I checked the book where I found the inscription it just
says it was found in the territory of the Falerii, thus I assumed they were
Latin speaking. Granted however "foied" and "pipafo" look nothing like Latin.
I am not very familiar with Faliscan, perhaps you could refer me to the
source where you read that it was a Faliscan inscription?
