In other cultures they were often pictured with or buried with the possessions that they wanted to take into the afterlife. I think it is very significant that instead of worldly possessions, in the Cerveteri Sarcophagus and the Sarcophagus of Larth Tetnies and Thanchvil Tarnai we see what really matters to them, their wives and the love they felt for each other which is visible on their faces.
