Makron is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 495-475 BCE. The name derives from a skyphos from Suessula with the signature of Makron as painter (“egrapsen”) and Hieron as potter (“epoiesen”) (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 13.186; BAPD 204681) showing Paris and Helen on one side and Menelaus and Helen on the other. The main shape is the cup, but also the aryballos, askos, stamnos, oinochoe, plate, and pyxis. Subjects include musicians, revelers (“komasts”), courting, the symposion, Dionysos and followers, a satyr-play, athletes, warriors, centaurs, Herakles, Demeter and Triptolemos, and the Trojan War. Some findspots are Athens (Acropolis, Agora), Etruria (Vulci, Orvieto, Cerveteri, Chiusi, Tarquinia), Adria, sites in southern Italy, and Ampurias (Spain).
