**********

The Apulian culture was an Iron and Bronze Age Greek colony in the boot heel region of southern Italy during the fifth century B.C.. The region, now called Puglia, is best known for its classical vases. Although heavily influenced by Greek mainland design, Apulian wares are distinctive in their execution as they continued to use local techniques and cater to local tastes.

As opposed to the earlier black-figure decoration where the figures were painted in black silhouette and details were incised or cut through the glaze to the red clay beneath, the red-figure technique allowed more fluidity of design since the detail was painted on rather than incised.
