Abati, Ercole grandson of the following, was born at Modena in 1563. He was a talented genius, but disgraced himself by intemperance.

In the Gallery of Florence there is a fine picture of his the Marriage at Cana. In connection with Schildon, He painted some pictures in the Council Hall at Florence. He died in 1613.
