The Sosias Painter is an Athenian red-figure painter and part of the Pioneer Group active ca. 510-500 BCE. The name derives from the potter ("epoiesen") who signs as Sosias on a cup from Vulci (Berlin, Antikensammlung F2278; BAPD 200108) showing Achilles and Patroklos on the interior and the introduction of Herakles to Olympus on the exterior. Shapes are stands, plates, and cups. Other scenes include a winged female and a satyr. Another findspot is the Athenian Acropolis.
