Many cultures had different views and roles for women that were influenced by multiple factors. Although we may not have much evidence to fully distinguish and compare between the Etruscan culture and their neighbors. Its cultural material suggests women have a higher status then the Greek and Romans. ‘The Cerveteri Sarcophagus’ dated 520 BCE depicts a man and woman reclined in a manor that was common for a banquet. It was typical for them to eat together like this. This differs from their Greek neighbors who found it inappropriate for men and women to converse in discussion. Typically cultural material and art styles between cultures blend faster than social behaviors. It’s also important to mention that we don’t know everything about this society or any due to time and lost context.
