One of the braziers (96.18.96, ca. 600 B.C.) is decorated with two different cylinder stamps, one showing a standard animal procession, the other depicting a boar hunt that is known only from five examples excavated at San Giovenale. The other brazier (19.192.53, ca. 550 B.C.) is stamped with a scene of a man and two dogs chasing a hare into a net held by a second man. Such friezes were popular on Protocorinthian vases and Etruscan Pontic ware. The fragment (23.160.94, ca. 540–530 B.C.) depicts pairs of lions attacking a bull and a doe, a subject that was adapted by the Etruscans from Near Eastern and Greek prototypes and that also appears on the Monteleone Chariot (03.23.1), which is on view in this gallery.
