A study on the imported vases kept at the Burdur Archaeological Museum has revealed that among them a Attic red figure skyphos was actually the work of the Kalymnos Painter. Like his other vases, this skyphos too bears two youths wearing himations on its either faces. It appears that the thick border of upturned “V ”s below the himations glazed with firnis and stylization of the voluted floral motifs on both sides of the scenes are the characteristics of the Kalymnos Painter. The painter’s known works suggest that he was active in the second quarter of the 4th century bc. He specialized in Type A skyphos decoration and worked with a very narrow range of scenes. Like the painters of the F.B. Group, to whom he was stylistically related, he must have worked in a workshop which met the demands of the market of cheaper vases across the Mediterranean. Although he was not among the most talented artists of his time, one may appreciate his confident hands judging from his lines and imagine that he, like his counterparts producing similar decorations, was working under time constraints due to mass production.
