Learn Messapian online through Skype with our professional language tutors and explore the culture, heritage and lifestyle of the people of the bygone era!Messapian is an extinct Indo-European language that was spoken mainly in south eastern Italy. Specifically it was the language of the three Iapygian tribes of the region: the Messapians, the Dauni and the Peucetii. Messapian language became extinct after the roman conquest of the Italian peninsula. Eventually the region was incorporated into Roman Italy and the Messapian language gave way to Latin. Whatever knowledge we have of the language today is derived from the preserved inscriptions that belong to the period between the sixth and first centuries BC.
It is believed that the Messapii, and their neighbours to the north, the Peucetii, were probably of Illyrian origin. In fact many believe that Messapian may have been an Illyrian language that was spoken mainly on the other side of the Adriatic Sea. This can be determined by the personal names found on tomb inscriptions and on classical references.
