Photographer's Note

Tomb of the Pulcella
It was discovered in 1865 and consists of a rectangular chamber with a niche in the center of the back wall with Tuscan columns and a Gorgonic mask on the head of the ridge beam; two winged geniuses spread a veil over the deceased, on either side two musicians. Banquet scenes are depicted on the side walls featuring a man and a woman half reclining on the klinai. It dates back to the end of the 5th century BC. It owes its name to a small handmaid depicted on the left wall. It was subject to theft in 1963, with damage to the face of the chick and the removal of the figures of a diner and a small servant, whose head, found in a German museum, was spontaneously returned and is now in the Archaeological Museum of Tarquinia.
