Turpi'lius La'beo

of Venice, a Roman knight, contemporary with Pliny, who mentions him as an exception to the low condition in life of the generality of Roman painters since Pacuvius. Another peculiarity was that he painted with his left hand. He was recently dead when Pliny wrote the passage in which he mentions him. There were some beautiful pictures by him at Verona. He may be placed about A. D. 60. (Plin. Nat. 35.4. S. 7.)
