  • CAVI Collection: Eleusis 907.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of BF epinetron. Sappho Painter. Ca. 500. Still sixth (Haspels 105).
  • CAVI Subject: Amazons arming.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: fr. a: ?](.)ετοτοτ. h(.)οτ. Fr. b: τειτ. πεhι{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} D. Philios mentioned the possibility that the letters attached to the fighters imitate barbarian war cries and those attached to the trumpeter, music. This is strongly supported by Bélis. Lissarrague follows her. My readings differ from Belis' readings and I do not believe that the inscriptions are musical notation: Immerwahr Belis fr. 1: ?](.)ετοτοτ τοτοε hτ̣οτ το[τ]η fr. 2: πεhι Γεηι fr. 3: τειτ τειτ I think that none of the inscriptions are retr. as Belis assumes.
  • CAVI Comments: See Haspels 96 for a discussion of the Sappho Painter's use of nonsense inscriptions. (.) preserves a bit of a letter. Lissarrague lists this vase as an example of nonsense in the position of a song [from the mouth].
