Roman Shield

Etruscan-Roman Shield - "The winged sun is a symbol associated with divinity, royalty and power in the Ancient Near East (Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Persia" - wikipedia)

Mars on the horse    The horse is a strong symbol in the Etruscan culture. Like  in the Egyptian or in the Chinese culture the Etruscans would put in their tombs a large number of warriors or horses or chariots...to be their army in the next world, in fact for the Etruscans the death was only a passage to the next world. Mars (his Etruscan transposition) and Minerva are the most   represented figures of the Etruscan mythology.
