The so-called Maestro della foglia (Master of the Leaf) worked mainly for Katana and often but not always (as here) signed his works with a leaf. The youthful yet mature head of Apollo showing a somber gaze led to the speculation by Rizzo that the Apollo-head issues of Katane (SNG ANS 1254-6) were by the same artist, although it seems that the Piakos dies were produced before the Katane dies.
