This tomb is particularly rich in terms of decorations and ornamentations. Along the walls there are two friezes- a small one which is a sort of an entablature in relief and another larger one. Set on a white background, all of the funeral games once played in Greece are represented, including the Etruscan game of “Phersu”. In the corners, two wooden stages are depicted beneath a sort of tent or canopy where a lively audience – both men and women, are watching, talking and enjoying the games. The larger frieze is sculpted on a red background and captures a banquet scene which is accompanied by dancers and musicians. Unfortunately this frieze is quite damaged.
Dated: 490 – 480 b.C.
