Italian medallist known for his antique coin imitations produced with Alessandro Bassiano. The extremely high quality of their reproductions makes them extremely difficult to identify as fakes.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from "New Studies on Giovanni da Cavino" by Giovanni Gorini, Studies in the History of Art, Vol. 21, Symposium Papers VIII: Italian Medals (1987), pp. 45-54: "He was born in Padua on 16 May 1500 at 10:00 p.m." (p. 45); "1570. Cavino died 5 September 1570" (p. 53).

The Florentine Calendar was in operation but because the time is given as "10 p.m." it has presumably been converted.
