Epiktetos is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 520-490 BCE who painted bilingual cups (black-figure interior, red-figure exterior). The name is inscribed on vases as both potter (“epoiesen”) and painter (“egrapsen”). The painter is thought to have decorated vases for the potters Hischylos, Python, Pistoxenos, and the Nikosthenes-Pamphaios workshop. Other shapes are plates, kraters, the askos, oinochoe, and pelike. Scenes include satyrs, centaurs, Herakles and Busiris, the symposion, erotic scenes, athletes, and male revelers (“komasts”). Some findspots are Athens (Acropolis, Agora), Etruscan sites (Vulci, Gravisca, Cerveteri, Adria), and a shipwreck off the coast of Gela (Sicily).
