The Ancient Etruscan Liver of Piacenza, found in 1877 near Gossolengo, Italy. This bronze artifact is a life-sized model of a sheep’s liver, and is believed to be a tool for priests practicing haruspicy (a form of divination which involves inspecting the entrails of sacrificed animals). It is thought to date to the 2nd-3rd centuries BC, and is covered in writing of the names of Etruscan deities.
