Lydos is an Athenian black-figure painter active ca. 560-540 BCE. The name derives from vases signed as “ho Lydos” (“the Lydian”), such as a dinos from the Athenian Acropolis (Athens, National Museum Acr. 607; BAPD 310147) where he is signed as painter ("egrapsen"). Lydos painted a variety of large and small shapes, including the column krater, amphora, hydria, Siana cup, cups of other types, and plates. Scenes include Herakles, Dionysos, Theseus, draped men, and the Trojan War. The vases have been found primarily in Athens (Acropolis, Agora, Kerameikos), southern Italy, Etruscan sites, and Sicily.
