Photographer's Note

The remaining Etruscan era gate in Volterra is shown here. The Etruscan walls are outside the newer 13th-century walls; these inner walls were constructed once it became clear that the older walls were too long to be defensible. This gate is decorated with three heads, very eroded, believed to be the heads of Zeus, Castor and Pollux.
