Model of an Etruscan Temple
Previous Previous Next Next
Description
Based on descriptions by Vitruvius.

Temples
The Etruscans incorporated Greek deities and heroes into their pantheon and used divination to predict future events.
Etruscans built their temples with mud-brick walls; columns and entablatures were made of wood or a quarried volcanic rock.

They also used the post-and-lintel structure and gable roofs, with bases, column shafts, and capitals recalling the Doric or Ionic order, and entablatures resembling a Doric frieze.
