The classical Latin alphabet, also known as the Roman alphabet, is a writing system which evolved from the Cumaean version of the Greek alphabet. The Cumaean script was descended from the Phoenician alphabet. The Cumaean alphabet was adopted and modified by the Etruscans who ruled early Rome. The Etruscan alphabet was in turn adopted and further modified by the ancient Romans to write the Latin language.
