Etruscan charioteer. Etruscans, who lived in Etruria, were known as Tyrrhenians by the Greeks. They were at their height in Italy from the 8th to the 5th century BCE. Herodotus (c. 450 BCE.) reports, as a theory of their origin, that the Etruscans came from Asia Minor. The Etruscans lived in what is modern Tuscany , in the area bounded by the Tiber and Arno rivers, the Apennines and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
