Elizabeth Baughan (University of Richmond), “Funerary beds and couches in Etruria and Anatolia”

Abstract: Stone replicas of wooden beds and couches are found in both Etruscan and Anatolian tombs. While some details of form and layout are strikingly comparable, others are distinctive, and the two traditions seem to have emerged from different conceptual backgrounds and funerary practices. This paper will explore the implications of both the similarities and the differences in the way funeral beds and couches were arranged and decorated in Anatolian and Etruscan tombs, and will also consider depictions of klinai (banquet couches) in Etruscan tomb paintings. While Etruscans used the same furniture types found in contemporary western Anatolia and Greece, they did so in different and culturally distinctive ways.
