We say, 'before the foundation (abstract) of Rome;' the Latins said, 'before Rome founded.' Etrusci--the Etrurians, Etruscans, or Tuscans. Hence Tuscany.

Albanos--the inhabitants of Alba Longa, the most ancient town of Latium, said to have been founded by Ascanius, the son of the Trojan Aeneas, who fled to Italy after the fall of Troy.
