I of Macedon is on a distinguished road

Well there is “two or three supposed” types of venetics as stated by those experts, those that inhabit the northern Adriatic next to Italy (Adriatic Veneti), in France (Veneti – Gaul) and those that supposedly resided in and around what is now modern day Poland (Vistula Veneti) - thus where the so called slavs come into the picture.

There are experts (Germans for one) that like to differentiate between the all the veneti above, that is that they are all different to one another, yet to this day it is highly disputable, as with the slavic migration model.

There are also experts that will differentiate the veneti (that supposedly reside in Poland) and the so called Slavs in what is modern day Ulraine. One must remember, that is because those experts believe in the migration model, that is the slavs started migrating further west (thus assimilating or exterminating the veneti and their language in Poland – which is the basis of the traditional migration model of the slavs (replacing and/or assimilating) and further into Europe only in, I believe the 5th to 6th century, therefore eliminating the so called slavs (as is known today of all the slavic speakers) as having a justifiable connection to the ancient ventics and the language that may have been.

Remember the veneti are an obscure people that seem to have been everywhere.

For instance

Roman historians such as Plinius, Tacitus and Procopius mention tribes of Veneti, Eneti, Sclavini and Anti living as far south as the Dnieper and as far north as the Vistula River in the first and second centuries AD. The Veneti are also mentioned in the writings of a number of ancient authors such as Strabo, Pomponius, Mella, and Cassius Dio which place this people in various regions in more ancient times all across Eastern Europe and as far south as Asia Minor. Quintus Curtius Rufus mentioned the Veneti as part of Alexander the Great's army in the 4th century BC. Herodotus in the 5th century BC mentioned a people of the Balkans he calls the Eneti. And an even older source, the Iliad of Homer, mentioned the Veneti as allies of Troy, pushing their possible existence in the Balkans as far back as the 8th century BC.

With the scripts I don’t know exactly which you are referring to, but I will place the following that I do know.

Glozel signs (found in France) ... age002.jpg

Vinca signs (Balkans) 6000BC to 3000BC

Venetic script (1000BC – northern Adriatic near Italy)

Archaeological interpretations of the similarities between the Vinca and Glozel signs

NOTE: As of today there is enough evidence to move away from the migration model, also because much of today’s data doesn’t fit (as stated in the review) within the migration model of the so called Slavs. Remember this is a theory introduced over 100 years ago, and intern is losing credibility, and not gaining as such or even maintaining its credibility for the reasons mentioned.

I thought that I will also mention that there was a review on a book that mentioned symbols that are termed Thracian, and basically stated the following about what the scientific community may think about them.

“This discovery may appear quite threatening and paradigm shifting for some present “scientific” historical, archaeological and anthropological dogmas. Thus it may trigger negative reactions and opposition by those readers who remain unprepared for significant set-of-mind changes and by those former “authoritative” figures in science, who would rather deny this unique discovery, than loose their personal “scientific” ground and territory.”
No need to sit in the shade, because we stand under our own sun
