Bronze mirror


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 170

Two-horse chariot driven by a woman

Most Praenestine mirrors have a distinctive pear-shaped disc, unlike the circular discs of mirrors produced in Etruria. In this example, a product of the same workshops that made the cistae in this case, the female figure driving a chariot is probably Thesan (Greek: Eos), the Etruscan goddess of the dawn.
