Abstract :
This paper, extracted from a thesis on Etruscology produced by the writer, intends to make new observations about the interpretation of the paintings of the Tomba delle Iscrizioni, located at the necropolis of Monterozzi in Tarquinia and dating back to the last quarter of the 6th century BC. A survey based on the analysis and comparison between the apograph and the antigraphs of the tomb frescoes and on an anthropological study applied to the images has in fact made it possible to provide an alternative interpretation of the entire pictorial program.
