Title: Four New Campana Dinoi, a New Painter, Old Questions

Four new Campana dinoi have come to light: three in the U.S.A. and a fragmentary one in Amsterdam. The publication of one, the dinos in the collection Shelby White in New York, is forthcoming. The other three are published here. We also study a fifth dinos in the U.S.A. and one in Würzburg. It appears that three, rather than two, painters were active in the workshop; this third artisan, whom we call the Hoof Painter, painted the dinoi in Würzburg and Amsterdam. We analyse the style of these painters and of related ware, especially of the Northampton amphorae. Finds show that the Northampton amphorae were not made in Etruria, as we formerly assumed, but somewhere in East Greece. The same holds, we believe, for the Campana dinoi, but new evidence, and especially clay analysis is needed to decide this matter for good.
