The name given traditionally to the divinity who invented the Etruscan disciplina etrusca and who was associated with wisdom. He is extensively mentioned by ancient authors including Cicero, Ovid, and Lucan. These accounts tell of a creature of boyish appearance that appeared to a ploughman in his furrow. This same creature instructed the assembled people of Etruria in the art of divination and then disappeared. This oral tradition was eventually written down in 12 books.
