The Diosphos Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active in the first half of the 5th c. BCE. The name derives from the inscription “kalos Diosphos” (“Diosphos is beautiful”) on a small neck amphora (Paris, Cabinet des Médailles 219; BAPD 305526) showing the Birth of Dionysos. The Diosphos Painter also worked in white-ground and Six’s technique. Mainly a lekythos painter, other shapes are the neck amphora, alabastron, kyathos, and epinetron. Scenes include representations of myths (Amazons, Herakles, Memnon), chariots, warriors, and Dionysos. Findspots are Athens (Acropolis, Kerameikos, Agora), Corinth, Perachora, sites in Italy and Sicily, and Rhodes.
