The Hegesiboulos Painter is an Athenian red-figure cup painter active ca. 510-500 BCE. The name derives from the potter (“epoisen”) who signs as Hegesiboulos on a cup (New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art 07.286.47; BAPD 201603) showing a man and his dog (surrounded by coral-red) on the interior and a symposion and komos on the exterior. A fragment of an unidentified shape from the Athenian Acropolis (Athens, National Museum 2.538; BAPD 201604) showing a symposion has been connected to the painter.
