Apollo from Veji, who is called the work of Vulca

Vulca was an Etruscan sculptor from Veji who, after Pliny the Elder, made the terracotta sculptures at the temple of Iuppiter Optimus Maximus in Rome . Pliny names Lucius Tarquinius Priscus (616 to 579 BC) as the client. But for chronological reasons it was more likely Tarquinius Superbus (534 to 509 BC), who is also known to have built the temple of Iuppiter. Vulca is the only Etruscan artist known by name. The sculpture of Apollon von Veji , which stylistically can be dated to around this time, is also attributed to him.
