    Explanation

    Latin alphabet: The classical Latin alphabet, also known as the Roman alphabet, is a writing system which evolved from the visually similar Cumaean Greek version of the Greek alphabet. The Greek alphabet, including the Cumaean version, was descended from the Phoenician abjad. The Cumaean Greek alphabet was adopted and modified by the Etruscans who ruled early Rome. The Etruscan alphabet was in turn adopted and further modified by the ancient Romans to write the Latin language.
