Changing Perspectives: Greek myth in Etruria

Izzet, Vedia, (1970) Changing Perspectives: Greek myth in Etruria Attema, P., Nijboer, A. and Zifferero, A. (eds.) In Papers in Italian Archaeology: Communities and Settlements from the Neolithic to the Early Medieval Period. vol. 2, Archaeopress. 6 pp, pp. 822-827.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper examines two almost identical representations of a scene from Greek myth that were found in similar contexts (Caeretan, funerary), but that were deposited almost 200 years apart. It asks how we should understand such similar images that were separated by such a historical gulf. By examining the other images on the vases (the semantic context), and the evidence for the use of the vase (the cultural context) it calls for a reconfiguration of how we read the same image and iconography, and argues that two nearly identical images had very different meanings for their ancient viewers.
