Phintias is an Athenian red-figure painter active ca. 525-510 BCE, who signed as both painter (“egrapsen”) and potter (“epoiesen”). Along with Euthymides, Euphronios, and other vase-painters, Phintias is considered a member of the Pioneer Group. Shapes connected to the painter include both cups and large vessels, like the hydria, amphora (Type A), and krater. Smaller shapes connected to the potter are the cup and the cockle-shell aryballos. Scenes include the symposion, fountain-house, and athletes. Some findspots are Etruria (Vulci, Populonia, Orvieto, Tarquinia), the Athenian Acropolis, and Thasos.
