Of the major regions in Southern Italy producing painted vases, only Campania had a significant black-figure output. As the present example indicates, the technique employs a minimum of incision, making it closer to silhouette than actual figure. While dependent on Attic models, a piece such as this one is distinct in the decoration that circles the vase rather than being divided by the handles into front and back.
