Nazzano Painter


Faliscan red-figure vase painter whose name is unknown. Nevertheless consistent individual characteristics of style suggest the existence of a unique artistic personality. He is called the Nazzano Painter having been named after a calyx-krater in Rome from Nazzano. Faliscan vase painting began about 400 BC and closely imitated Attic vase-painting. Falerii was considered an Etruscan city although the Faliscans spoke a dialect of Latin.
