SETHLANS
   An Etruscan divinity that has been linked to the Greek Hephaistos and the Roman Vulcan, as the divinity of artisans and smiths. His attributes are generally a hammer, pincers, and doubleheaded axe, together with a workman’s cap. He first appears as a named figure in the fourth century BC. He is often associated with craftsmanship within myths depicted on Etruscan mirrors. He appropriately appears frequently on the coinage of Populonia, the metallurgical settlement on the coast of Etruria.
