Les monuments de type Regia dans le monde étrusque, Murlo et Acquarossa

Abstract : The excavations in Murlo and Acquarossa revealed the existence in Etruria between the end of the 7th and the middle of the 6th Century BC of a kind of monumental architecture that was unknown before. The model was borrowed from the the Eastern Mediterranean palaces and the decoration underlines the values of an aristocratic class, established outside of the cities, soon to disappear due to the growing control of these cities on the whole territory of the country. An evolution can be seen : in the earlier case of Murlo, the decoration stresses the importance of the aristocratic familial group, in the later case of Acquarossa, that of the heroic deeds of the individual leader, who appears as a new Herakles.
