The shape, many of the motifs, and the techniques of decoration here were introduced to Southern Italy by Greek immigrants and imports. The figures in Oscan dress represent one of the indigenous populations that sought out Greek traditions and integrated them into their culture. The red-figure vases in this case illustrate artistic acculturation.
