Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of abbreviations that occur in this book titled The Villanovan, Etruscan and Hellenistic collections in the Detroit Institute of Arts . The Etruscan collection was a part of the Department of Ancient art at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) for three decades. After a reorganization of the museum, it is now cared for in the Department of European Art. Cinerary urns of stone or terracotta provide one of the most important sources for studying Etruscan culture during the Hellenistic period. The northern half of Italy began its long tradition as an important Mediterranean metalworking region under the Villanovan culture, 10th-early 7th century's BCE. This Iron Age Urnfield culture was named after Villanova, a site near Bologna where one of its distinctive cinerary urn cemeteries was first discovered in 1853.

Keywords: cinerary urns; Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA); Etruscan collection; European Art; Hellenistic period; Villanovan culture
