  • CAVI Collection: Urbana, University of Illinois, Krannert Museum 70-9-3.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF Tyrrhenian amphora. Painter of Berlin 1686 (A. Perkins); Pointed-Nose Painter (Bothmer); Unattributed, not Tyrrhenian (Kluiver). Third quarter sixth. Ca. 550 (CVA).
  • CAVI Subject: A: a nude horseman with a spear leading a second horse; at left, a bearded man with a spear; at right, a nude youth with a spear. B: two nude young horsemen with spears.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: imitation letters: the inscriptions are placed where one would expect names: A: to right of a spear held up before the man's face: (γ)(ι)ν(σ)ν. Under the horses' bellies: (.)νγσν{1}. In front of the horses: κσνκ(γ)σνε. To right of (behind) the youth's head: six letters. B: to left of (behind) the left rider's chest: seven letters ending in σν. Under the left horse's belly: (κ)σκσ(κ)σ. To left of the right rider's face: γσγσγ. Under the right horse: κσκσγ. To right of the right horse: five letters.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the first letter is unclear.
  • CAVI Comments: `Midwestern' (in index) lists the location as Champaign, not Urbana. The letters are small in the photos. and hard to read. The rightmost inscription on B is de trop, imitating A, where there is an extra horse. The letters are disjointed. These readings are from `Midwestern', but compare the phs. in CVA. Are these mock inscriptions or illiterate attempts?
