Tomb of the Augurs

Local nameTomba degli Auguri
LocationTarquinia, Italy

The Tomb of the Augurs is an Etruscan burial chamber so called for by a misinterpretation of one of the fresco figures on the right wall thought to be a Roman priest known as an augur. The tomb is located within the Necropolis of Monterozzi and dates to around 530-520 BC. This tomb is one of the first tombs in Tarquinia to have figural decoration on all four walls of its main or only chamber. This tomb is also the first time a theme not of mythology, but instead depictions of Etruscan funerary rites and funerary games are seen.
