ETRUSCAN MYTHOLOGY

The old pre-Roman Gods of the Etruscans...

TINIA

Etruscan Supreme God

Also known as TIN, TINIS, TINH

Loud and proud Sky God Supremo

He is the King of the Etruscan pantheon which he rules with his consort UNI.

The biggy of big bangs, he specializes in thunderbolts, lightning and the kind of noises that cause eardrums to tintinnabulate.

He is not the kind of God to approach for sound advice, unless you already have tin ears.

The Romans identified him with JUPITER.
