I just found damningly conclusive proof now that Losna is indeed falsely identified as Etruscan as I asserted above. It turns out that a root may be reconstructed securely in Proto-Indo-European (PIE), namely *louksno- 'shiny' , based on cognates in Avestan raoxšna- 'shiny' and Old Prussian lauxnos 'stars' (see Puhvel, Hittite Etymological Dictionary (1984), p.154). As usual, Etruscologists are allergic to diligent research and my shameless skepticism of these 'experts' is once again entirely valid. Teehee!Sorry, I can't help but gloat. I always think I'm mad for single-handedly questioning university-educated, PhD-endowed academics and then crazy stuff like this materializes to validate my flowery iconoclasty. Imagine, this all started with that dreaded mirror from Praeneste and then 19th-century Etruscan scholars pounced on it, automatically believing that the mirror was Etruscan (see George Dennis in 1848 and later George Rawlingson as published in 1893, for example). However, this "modern myth" never went away and continued on in published works such as Mayani's notoriously proposterous Les Étrusques commencent à parler in 1961 (See page 232. This book was unfortunately translated into English as The Etruscans Begin to Speak, serving to misinform the next generation of anglophones as well.) Then, even though it's now clear that this is not an Etruscan mirror, new-age nutjobs and poorly informed Etruscologists sadly can't let go and nonetheless use it to weave more tales about how they think Etruscan mythology works based on what they may even admit are antiquated "scraps"! (See the article For the mother and for the daughter by Nancy De Grummond, published in Charis: Essays in Honor of Sara A. Immerwahr, ed. by Chapin (2004), p.367 to know what I mean. I assume she's trying to appeal to the aforementioned new-age fanbase because I can't for the life of me find structure in this suspiciously gynocentric rant and thinly-stretched game of hyperassociation.) The internet is now awash with 150-year-old misinformation and probably won't change anytime soon.
So be on guard, fellow logicians. Insanity is everywhere and we're outnumbered.
