The Nikoxenos Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter active late 6th to early 5th c. BCE and affiliated with the Leagros Group. The painter also produced black-figure and bilingual vases (see Nikoxenos Painter [black-figure]). The name derives from a Panathenaic amphora from Capua, Italy (Oxford, Mississippi University Museum 1977.3.115; BAPD 202964) with “Nikoxenos kalos” (“Nikoxenos is beautiful”) inscribed on Athena’s shield. Other shapes are the amphora, hydria, and pelike. Subjects include the Death of Priam, Perseus and Medusa, and religion. Findspots are sites in Etruria (Vulci, Tarquinia, Cerveteri), the Athenian Acropolis, Aegina, and Naukratis.
