Situla from the tomb of Boccoris.

Glass paste. 8th century BCE.

Tarquinia, National Archaeological Museum

Description:
Etruscans reacted keenly upon the events of the end of 8th — 7th century B.C. in the Mediterranean basin, especially in the East, and maintained connections with the strongest states. This explains the findings of trade articles from Phoenician and Egyptian workshops in Etruscan tombs of 7th century B.C. (pic. 6). It should be supposed that Greeks contribute a lot into the Etruscans/’ acquaintance with the artistic achievements of the culture of eastern peoples.
