Munthukh is an Etruscan Love-Goddess and Goddess of Health, one of the attendants of Turan. On one famous engraved mirror-back, Munthukh is shown helping the Bride-Goddess Malaviskh get ready for Her wedding. With fellow attendants Zipu (or Zipanu) and Hinthial, She prepares the bride while Turan, the Love Goddess, watches from the side. Munthukh seems to be in charge of Malaviskh’s make-up, as She stands before Malaviskh holding a brush or makeup applicator while holding Her face lightly between Her hands, as if adjusting Her crown or evaluating the artistry or symmetry of the make-up job so far.
Munthukh’s name means “Elegance” (and She looks it), related words in Etruscan being munth “adornment”, “order”, or “honoring”, and munthu “one who polishes”. The Latin word mundus, of Etruscan origins, in its form as the female name “Munda” is sometimes used as the Latin translation of Munthukh’s name. Mundus has the usual meaning of “the world” or “the universe” in the sense of that which is all-encompassing; but which carries the additional meaning of “ornament”, “decoration”, or “adornment of a woman”.
