Messapian (also known as Messapic) is an extinct Indo-European language of southeastern Italy, once spoken in the region of Apulia. It was spoken by the three Iapygian tribes of the region: the Messapians, the Dauni and the Peucetii. The language has been preserved in about 300 inscriptions dating from the 6th to the 1st century BC. Messapian may have been related to the Illyrian language. Messapian became extinct after the Roman Republic conquered the region of Apulia and assimilated the inhabitants.
