Compared with the Achilles Painter whose student he was, the Phiale Painter shows a greater predilection for mythological scenes and active figures. The subject depicted here cannot be certainly identified. It may represent the hero Theseus, who engaged in various amorous pursuits as he made his way from Troizen, where he was born, to Athens.
