Deciphering the Etruscans

A five foot stele with 70 characters of a long inscription legible may provide some insights into the culture, religion, or law of the Etruscans. Archaeologists don't believe it's a gravestone (which is pretty much all the Etruscan inscriptions we have) and think it may be part of a sacred text.

Of course, everything's ritual when you don't know what it does... Or, in this case, says. It was found near a temple, though.
