Alessandro Cesati, sometimes known as Il Greco was born around 1500 to an Italian father and a Cypriot mother, though he seems to have spent his early years in Milan. His career was basically in Rome where he produced dies for coins and medals. He finally left Rome in 1561 and ultimately was in Venice by 1564 after which he took ship for Cyprus and disappears from the record.
