Aristophon was a Greek painter, mentioned by Pliny the Elder.
Aristophon was the son and pupil of the elder Aglaophon, and brother of Polygnotus. He was a native of Thasos. Pliny, who places him among the painters of the second rank, mentions two works by him: one showing Ancaeus wounded by the boar and mourned over by his mother Astypalaea, and another containing figures of Priam, Helen, Ulysses, Deiphobus, Dolon, and Credulitas.
