The Amasis Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active ca. 560-515 BCE. The name derives from the potter ("epoiesen") who signs as Amasis. Scholars debate if the painter and potter are one in the same. The painter sometimes combines the full black-figure technique with outline and at times employs a minituristic style. Shapes include different amphora types, lekythos, oinochoe, and alabastron. Subjects are Dionysos and his followers, other gods, draped figures, warriors, and revelers ("komasts"). Main findspots are Vulci and other sites in Etruria, Athens (Acropolis, Agora, Kerameikos), and Naukratis.
