Andokides(redirected from Andokidès)
potter and possibly vase painter who lived during the second half of the sixth century B.C.
Andocides worked in Athens, and his name is connected with the transition from the black-figure to the red-figure technique of vase painting. Among the vases which have been preserved are black-figure vases, such as the amphora from Andocides’ workshop entitled Heracles and Cerberus, located in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, and red-figure vases, such as the amphora with a citharist, in the Louvre, Paris. There are also several vases executed in both techniques, such as the amphora entitled The Feasting Heracles, in the Museum of Classical Minor Art, Munich, and a kylix in the National Museum, Palermo.
