Group E is a large group of Athenian black-figure painters active ca. 560-540 BCE. The name derives from a close association to Exekias, who signs a Group E vase as potter ("epoiesen").

Subjects include the Birth of Athena, Herakles, Amazons, Theseus and the Minotaur, as well as athletes, the symposion, and funerary scenes.
