The Briseis Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 480-470 BCE. The name derives from a cup found at Vulci (London, British Museum E76; BAPD 204400) showing Achilles and Briseis. The main shape is the cup, but other shapes are the neck amphora, Panathenaic amphora, column krater, lekythos, alabastron, pyxis, and plate. Subjects include warriors, athletes, Herakles, Dionysos and followers, revelers (“komasts”), and religion. Some findspots are Adria, Etruria (Vulci, Tarquinia, Cerveteri), sites in southern Italy and Sicily, Athens, and Naukratis.
