Women seem to take a much more powerful role in Etruscan art. The sculpture of the She Wolf is a powerful female figure, suckling Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. The Cerveteri Sarcophagus depicts a husband and wife enjoying each other’s company casually. This was considered inappropriate by the Greeks and Lantin. The Sarcophagus of Larth Tetnies and Thanchvil Tarnaicerveteri Sarcophagus also depict women in a more powerful and human sense, unheard of before this point.
