AN ETRUSCAN BRONZE MIRROR
CIRCA 3RD CENTURY B.C.
AN ETRUSCAN BRONZE MIRROR CIRCA 3RD CENTURY B.C. The circular disk incised on one side with four figures, showing the Dioskouroi, nude but for their distinctive Phrygian caps and laced short boots, seated upon folds of drapery, with Helen or Turan-Aphrodite standing between, her head inclined to the right and her long curly hair framing her face, similarly nude with laced boots, folds of drapery gathered between her legs, Menrva-Athena visible behind the central three figures, the goddess wearing her scaled aegis and helmet, a pediment in the background of the scene, perhaps suggesting a temple, with a spiky garland subdivided by four cuffs enclosing the interior, the handle terminating in a stylized animal head 10 in. (25.4 cm.) long
