Greek emigrants founded colonies in Southern Italy and Sicily as early as the mid-eighth century B.C. They flourished in their own right and profoundly influenced the artistic production of the indigenous populations. This interplay is particularly evident in the South Italian vases of the fourth century B.C., produced especially for funerary use. Furthermore, it appears in the predilection for subjects derived from Greek drama. Owing to a dearth of fine marble, terracotta was also a primary medium for sculpture.
