(September 8, 2023) The text of this stone is Etruscan in style. The text states the purpose of the temenos.

Temenos was a word Greeks used to describe the sacred area around a temple placed on a hill. It is an Akkadian phrase composed of the words Tu and MeNu meaning "astrology-magic.support." It was a place where interactions with the motion powers of the night sky took place. The deity Athena fits this because Athena literally means "Those Thu powers" (A.Thu.Na) Thu is the Druid hermaphrodite deity representing the motion powers of the connective layer  of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm.

Temple also derives from Akkadian meaning "life-curses to be ruled over" from Akkadian TeMu.PaLu.  Consquently temenos dealt with magical motion powers while temples dealt with life powers.
