But maybe you could be more tolerant to incorrect Endings like for example {Etruscian, Etruscic} for Etruscan. They are mostly extinct languages with a less standardized Names, which can make it unnecessarily difficult even for Persons who know their Stuff. Also you could accept Aquitanian for Vasconic.

But otherwise I love your Quiz in both Idea and Execution.

And of course I nominated it.

Got 20... feel like I should have gotten a few more, though, after seeing the answers.

I see some comments above referencing Nabatean and Etruscan but didn't see those on the quiz even though I guessed them.... was the quiz shrunk or simplified?

It was corrected. Mainly because the older version included several languages that were (long) extinct by this time period.
