A gem-engraver, two of whose works are extant, one of which is a fine cameo, in the antique style, representing an infant seated, a subject which, from the numerous repetitions of it on ancient gems, is thought by R. Rochette to be copied from some celebrated work of art. (Stosch, pl. ixix.; Bracci, vol. ii. pl. cxiii. ; Caylus, Recueil, pl. 45.2; Eckhel, Pierr. grav. de Vienne. pl. xxx.; R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, p. 156.)
