Thus by identifying genetic elements from semitic migrations into the Greece and Ethiopia the investigators came up with a sensational but fallacious claim for a sub-Saharan origin for the ancient Greeks. When you think of Ancient Italy, the first thing that normally comes to mind is the Romans. There, they were called "tuscii" in Latin. The Romans adopted numerous elements of Etruscan culture, including the Etruscan alphabet which the Etruscans had adopted from the Greeks.

There are many interesting possible relationships but none have been established. It appears to be a part of the Urnfield Culture of eastern Europe which arrived in Italy at the beginning of the first millenium B. The first Greek author to mention the Tyrrhenians is Hesiodin the 8th century BC in the Theogonywho describes them in Central Italy alongside the Latins and makes no mention of an eastern origin of the Tyrrhenians and doesn't associate them with the Pelasgians.
