Interior, Apollo and KalliopeExterior, lower bodies of two figures
The Kalliope Painter was a somewhat older colleague in the same workshop as the Eretria Painter. He specialized in cups—this one is his namepiece. It shows the god Apollo seated in a chair. The standing woman is Kalliope. In the fifth century B.C., the muses were not associated with specific arts, as later. Kalliope, however, was often considered the mother of Orpheus.
