It’s pretty clear that women in the Etruscan society were more respected than those in other cultures. In both the “Sarcophagus of Larth Tetnies and Thanchvil Tarnai’ and “The Cerveteri Sarcophagus’ women are portrayed as being on the same level as men, which I don’t think had really been done in any other cultures. There is also the first portrayal of affection between a husband and wife, which I thought was really interesting because the Greeks found the idea of men and woman socializing together offensive.
