The Lemnians of the 6th century used a language very similar to
Etruscan-Tyyrhenian. In fact they are so similar that it is clear to
even the most casual observer that Lemnian and Etruscan-Tyyrhenian
had a close common ancestral language. We know the Lemnos people from
the period of the Lemnos Stele were called Pelasgian; as a general
term. Thus the Language of the Lemnos Stele is Pelasgian. Again,
because Lemnian is so similar to Etruscan it is also a Pelasgian

Tyyrhenian | Pelo-Pelasgian? Attic-Pelasgian?
