Comparing the common grave monuments for women of Athenian society which were primarily stele and kore, to the grave monuments for Etruscan women, which were family tomb paintings and sarcophagi, will expose the large differences between the two societies’ views on women. Looking into the Roman culture, specifically the monuments and laws created by Augustus during the early Empire, will reveal the Etruscan influence on Roman society concerning women.
