Here the people of Lemnos are called Pelasgian near the time the lemnos text was inscribed. Thus, it is no stretch to conclude that Lemnos was a Pelasgian language and by extension so was Tyyrhenian. No? I believe this deminstrates that there are Pelasgian texts availble, they are just called Tyyrhenian. Since Herodot was from Anatolia I dont think he was wrong.
