Oltos is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 525-500 BCE that painted bilingual cups (black-figure interior, red-figure exterior). The name is inscribed on vases as both potter (“epoiesen”) and painter (“egrapsen”). The painter is thought to have collaborated with several potters, including Euxitheos and Kachrylion. Shapes are mainly cups, but also the Nikosthenic amphora, stamnos, and psykter. Subjects include gods, Herakles, the Trojan War, Theseus, Dionysos and followers, and warriors riding dolphins. Some findspots are Etruria (Vulci, Cerveteri, Orvieto, Chiusi), Athens (Acropolis, Agora), and Naukratis.
