ITTQ11 (Ind.11) is significantly different compared to the other three samples.

... "Therefore we can estimate, with some confidence, that two out of the six individuals from Tarquinia Civita could be considered as raised non-locally (Individuals 11 and 8)" ...

.. "we can infer that one of these isotopic outliers (Individual 11) not only spent their early life away from Tarquinia as shown by the radiogenic strontium isotopic values, but also had ancestry from a region as distant as the Baltic" ...

ITTQ11 coverage is about-69%

It looks like Felsina IA does broadly cluster over prior Etruscans from the Tarquina area near Latium, interestingly. Three of the four imperial samples appear to cluster over modern Tuscans which implies a much less dramatic increase in aegean ancestry than what is seen around Rome. The last seems perhaps Punic mixed with a small north African pull of ancestry. Assuming this pattern continues, I'd be surprised if we see much of a change at all in cities like Milan.

I checked the BAM files for males ITTQ19 and ITTQ10.

ITTQ19 is J2b-L283>>Z638>Y21045>PH4679>Z38300>Y161916>Y161937 (negative on YF016327ALB and J-FTD62718 SNPs)

ITTQ10 is J2b-L283>>Z638 (and PH2967-, Z637-, Y23094-, CTS5789-, Z631-). This one is lower coverage, further analysis may help.

A pretty interesting result for ITTQ19. I did not check if it's directly dated but it should be ~700 BCE. It would be interesting to see his autosomal analysis.

These few (still) Etruscans seem to me open enough to other ethnies individuals.
Concerning phoenotypes, even with these last contributions, I think we have too few of them to built any model, what is not the case concerning autosomes DNA spite the relative heterogeneity: the solution wold be discarding the too evident outsiders? In general I think we have too often at hand high castes individuals and I suppose the females of the lower social classes females were more alike to the males.
