The Antimenes Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active ca. 530-510 BCE. The name derives from the inscription “kalos Antimenes” (“Antimenes is beautiful”) appearing on a hydria from Vulci (Leiden, (Rijksmuseum II167 [PC63]; BAPD 320011) showing men washing in a fountain-house. Shapes are mostly the hydria and neck amphora. The painter has a wide range of mythological scenes, including Herakles, Dionysos, Amazons, Theseus and the Minotaur, and the Gigantomachy, as well as everyday scenes of the fountain-house and olive picking. Most examples have been discovered in Vulci and Tarquinia.
