Le costume étrusque à travers l’étude des productions céramiques étrusco-corinthiennes (630-550 avant J.-C.)

Abstract : Since the Oriental period, Greek clothing is gradually established on the Etruscan iconography, without loosing any specificity in the Tyrrhenians’ clothes. The study of human representations on the Etrusco – Corinthian ceramics allows us to observe this evolution at the turning point between the end of the oriental era and the beginning of the archaic era. Thus, we notice that Etruscan aristocrats remain committed to traditional clothes, such as the thick wool tunics, which were considered ostentatious clothes. Nevertheless, during the studied period, objects and representations in relation to the world of wool work become increasingly rare in the women’s tombs. In Etruria, women seemed much less symbolically linked to the world of the production of cloth. This could be one explanation among others of the special place they occupy among men, identified as a productive time taking activity which would confine them within the oikos.
