NDE hasn’t changed that much in over 2000 years?

When I visited the Etruscan tombs in Tarquina, Italy a couple of years ago, I was interested in wall paintings from the second half of the 3rd Century BC, showing the dead tomb owner

…preceded by a child and followed by Vanth-Etruscan female demon of death fitted with torch to light up the dark way to the afterlife. The dead person arrives in front of the Hades door, in front of which Caronte is seated on a rock, as the dead person is received by two members of the family already dead…

I felt there were quite a few similarities with the modern day classic NDE. Over 2200 years have past since this wall painting was made, and it was pretty awe inspiring to stand in front of it. Made me wonder whether the underlying NDE concepts have really changed that much since then.
