from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 4th Edition
- n. An extinct Sabellic language known from inscriptions in east central Italy from the seventh to the third centuries B.C. that are among the earliest preserved Italic texts.
- adj. Of or relating to South Picene.
Indeed, so successful was Latin that it supplanted all its ancient linguistic cousins—other Italic languages once spoken on the so-called Italic Peninsula: Faliscan, Oscan, Umbrian, and South Picene.
As is shown on Omniglot regarding Italic scripts, the only form of "u" used in North Picene is equivalent to the South Picene character transcribed as "uu".
