  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria{1}. Unattributed{2}. First quarter fifth. Ca. 500-490.

  • CAVI Inscriptions: Body: between the heads: Λυκ[ο]ς. Lower down: κα[λ]ο[ς].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} BF shape. {2} in CB Beazley suggested the vase might be an `essay piece' by a very young artist; in ARV[2] he suggests one might think of the Flying Angel Painter.
  • CAVI Comments: ARV[2]: Lykos might be same as the kalos of [Onesimos and Antiphon Painter, etc.], but this is doubtful [it is not clear to me why: in CB, p. 11 B. says that Lykos is a very common name, hence it need not be the same].
