Short Description

Numerous Etruscan monuments of the 4th to the 1st century BC contain depictions of human sacrifices and of various acts of violance committed in sacred places. There is a broad range of themes, taken mostly from Greek mythology. This volume looks at the interests that the Etruscan aristocracy pursued via the depiction of Greek myths.
