The Etruscan divinity of war, considered equivalent to the Greek Ares and Roman Mars. The earliest named representation dates to the fourth century BC from Populonia. He is usually depicted as an armed warrior (helmet, shield, and spear), often naked. Unnamed warrior divinities date to the sixth century BC from locations such as Orvieto, Brolio, and Chiusi and he was popularly represented in statuette form and sometimes on mirrors.
