Artist Orvieto Group
Attribution A.C. Smith. Shirley Schwarz, 'The Pattern Class Vases of the 'Gruppo di Orvieto' in the U.S. National Museum Collection, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.' StEtr 47 (1979) 75-80 publishes 17 examples of this class, none of which, however, are decorated with the 'z'. That pattern does, however, appear on chalices in the same group: see Schwarz 1979, 72 fig. 2d.
