The Bowdoin-Eye Painter is an Athenian red-figure cup painter active ca. 520-500 BCE who painted bilingual cups (black-figure interior, red-figure exterior). The name derives from a cup from Cerveteri (Brunswick, Maine, Bowdoin College 1913.2; BAPD 200369) showing athletes on the exterior and interior. Other subjects are warriors, satyrs and maenads, and revelers (“komasts”). Findspots include sites in Etruria (Vulci, Roselle), the Athenian Acropolis, and Olbia (Black Sea).
