    The CA Painter was the leading artist of a large Campanian workshop situated at Cumae rather than Capua. The frequent representation of Oscan warriors indicates the different environment. The Oscans were the original inhabitants of the region of Campania, and their language continued to be spoken until the first century B.C. The tripartite breastplate and the helmet with a crest and plumes are characteristic equipment of the warriors.
