The Oionokles Painter, who takes his name from the kalos inscription found on four of his neck-amphorae, was a follower of the Providence Painter, himself a pupil of the Berlin Painter. He was primarily a painter of small neck-amphorae, especially Nolans. Like his mentors, the Oionokles Painter preferred single figures isolated on the black background, as seen on the example presented here. On one side a youthful hunter holding two spears runs to the right but looks back, wearing a chlamys, his petasos suspended by a red cord over his shoulders. On the other side stands a bearded man holding a T-shaped staff, wearing a long chiton and a himation. Both wear fillets in added red and stand on a groundline of meander.
