Illustration from Wikipedia

According to Wikipedia, the Raeti (name variants: Rhaeti, Rheti, or Rhaetii, Ραιτοί in Ancient Greek) was the collective "ethnic" name used by the ancient Romans to denote a number of Alpine tribes, whose language and culture may have derived, at least in part, from the Etruscans. From not later than ca. 500 BC, they inhabited the central parts of present-day Switzerland and the Alpine regions of northeastern Italy.

Raetic remains have also been found in Austria, Liechtenstein and Switzerland.
