The Perizoma Group is a group of Athenian black-figure painters active from the last quarter of the 6th c. BCE. The name derives from the white loincloth (“perizoma”) worn by athletes and dancers. Shapes include the stamnos, small neck amphora, and one-handled kantharos (an Etruscan shape). Scenes are athletes and the symposion. Findspots include mostly Etruscan sites, with stray finds in Gela and Rhodes.
