South Picene

South Picene is an extinct Italic language that was spoken in east central Italy in the Marche and Abruzzo regions. The language is thought to be part of the Osco-Umbrian group of Italic languages. South Picene is also referred to as Mid-Adriatic or Paleo-Sabellic.

There are 23 known inscriptions on stone and bronze in the South Picene alphabet, which date from between the 6th and 4th centuries BC. The alphabet resembles the southern Etruscan alphabet. Most of the inscriptions are on grave stones, but some are on statues.
