The Haimon Painter is an Athenian black-figure painter active ca. 490-460 BCE. The name derives from several scenes showing the Sphinx and her victim (Haimon, son of Creon and Eurydice). Many vases apply white-ground or silhouette techniques. The main shape is the lekythos, including the “chimney lekythos,” as well as the skyphos, mastoid cup, oinochoe, hydria, and pyxis. Scenes include chariots, Dionysos and followers, Athena, and Herakles. Findspots are widespread: Athens (Kerameikos, Agora, Acropolis), sites across Greece, Italy and Sicily, Ampurias (Spain), Miletus, Al Mina (north Syria), Cyrene, and the Black Sea.
