This is the standard account, for which see for example Jeffery 1961: 2, 235-238. Like some other writers, Jeffery expresses doubt that the Etruscans owed their alphabet solely to the Euboean settlers at Pithekoussai (now Ischia) and Kyme (Rome Cumae); but these misgivings have to do with the sources of one or two letters only, it seems.
