It turned out that the relatives of this people, the Vasconi tribe, had an alphabet much earlier.

In the north of Spain hung a piece of adobe brick. He was hung there 2000 years ago. They probably believed that a flat bronze hand should bring good luck to the inhabitants.

On the creation, one could see an engraving of dozens of different strange symbols. It is they who can help to understand the development of the Basque language, writes The Gurdian.

Archaeologists discovered the hand from Irulega only last year. Excavations have been carried out since 2017. They were carried out near the castle of Irulegi, south of Pamplona, ​​one of the oldest cities in Spain. Recently, scientists have realized that this is a very valuable find.

After studying the inscriptions on the hand, they came to a sensational conclusion. Symbols are now considered to be the oldest example of a proto-Basque language. With it, you can learn more about the Vascona tribe, which lived in the north of the country before the arrival of the Romans. It is its representatives that are considered the ancestors of the modern Basque language.

It used to be thought that the Vascons did not have proper writing. It was believed that their alphabet appeared in the Roman period. At the same time, 4 words written with 40 characters were written by Vascons and point to something else. So far, scientists have been able to identify only sorioneku. It means good luck and is the predecessor of the Basque word zorioneko.

Javier Valeza, a professor of Latin philology at the University of Barcelona, ​​said the discovery finally confirmed the existence of writing in the Vascon tribe. There used to be such assumptions, but there were almost no texts to confirm.

“This inscription is undeniable, the first word of the text is clearly found in modern Basque,” he added.

His colleagues noted that the find will change the view of the Vascons and their writing.

Mattin Aistaran, director of the excavations, said that archaeologists have found a lot of materials. Once the village was burned down, and then abandoned altogether during the war between the Roman factions. Therefore, valuable artifacts remained in the ruins of houses for centuries.

At the same time, Velaza advised to better study and decipher the inscriptions and not to jump to conclusions. He urged to be serious from a scientific point of view.

It is worth noting that the “discoveries” of the Basque language were not always successful. Two years ago, a Spanish archaeologist was accused of falsifying finds. After research, the expert commission found traces of modern glue.
