Etruscan Wisdom God

God of Wisdom, and Divination by Augury and Haruspicy

The Wise Child, he came fully-formed from a newly plowed furrow, which can’t have been too straight as he had two snakes for legs. We imagine him as a God with a very furrowed brow.

As a miraculous youngster with the wisdom of an old man, he became a prophet and teacher who laid down all the rules of Etruscan life which have so annoyingly faded into obscurity.
