Telephos Painter (en)


The Telephos Painter is an Athenian red figure painter active ca. 470-460 BCE. The name derives from a cup found in eastern Etruria (Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 98.931; BAPD 205037) showing Telephos at the palace of Agamemnon. The main shape is the cup, but also the phiale, neck amphora, lekythos, and rhyton in the shape of a donkey head. Subjects include the symposion, revelers (“komasts”), satyrs, athletes, warriors, Eos and Tithonos, and the Ilioupersis. Some findspots are Orvieto, Etruria (Vulci, Tarquinia), sites in southern Italy and Sicily, Eretria, Athens (Acropolis, unspecified sites), and Camiros (Rhodes).
