SALT
   In common with other developed agricultural communities, salt was an essential commodity for the Etruscans, particularly for storage. Salt was probably procured from coastal salt pans, especially concentrated around the Tiber estuary, but the case has also been made that rock salt and the products of brine may have been traded from central Europe, perhaps in exchange for luxury products.
