Lazio, the Latin heartland

Tomb of the Leopards

Fresco of a funerary banquet on the main wall in the Tomb of the Leopards, an Etruscan burial chamber, named after the two leopards painted above a banquet scene. It shows banqueters attended by two nude boys carrying serving implements. The women are depicted as fair-skinned and the men as dark, which was a convention in this part of the world. The tomb is located within the Monterozzi necropolis in Tarquinia and dates to around 480-450 BCE.
