Horned Women XIII: Etruscan goat-horned goddess, possibly representing Uni, the forerunner of Juno. Among the many aspects of Roman Juno is the powerful goat-horned Juno Sospita or Juno Caprotina. Note similarity of her taile-lunar-shaped headdress to Russian folk headdress. Antefix, 4th c. bce, Tuscany (see how that Etruscan name persisted?)
