Only one die has been identified its distribution is wide and suggests that the slave Carisso worked for a master, Rituscia, for a limited time at one location. The output included Cam 8 and Cam 13 platters and Cam 56 cups, chiefly in TN. The name Carisso occurs on 1-line dies and may mean that Carisso went on the work alone. Rituscia is not recorded separately.
