Really old Temple of Apollo at Syracuse . Doric order and possibly one of the oldest temples. This is clear because the columns are very heavy, like it is experimental. The top is awkwardly tall and also very heavy. The sima are made of terra cotta and are brightly painted, part of Greek tradition that was being adopted by the Romans.

The Married Couple – 4 th C. (Espozi) – terra cotta sarcophagus that is in the shape of a married couple and the couch is the actual part that holds the bodies. Made in four parts because it is so large. Man and wife are side by side, the Etruscans don’t especially mind bending the bodies in bizarre ways, which the Greeks would have had major issues with this. The Etruscans were more into details and symbolism. They would have been holding/exchanging eggs. This would have been brightly painted.
