  • CAVI Collection: Baltimore, Walters 48.2240.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF cup{1}. Paidikos{2}. Last quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: komast: naked man bending over, a cup in one hand (into which he looks) and an oinochoe in the other{4}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: starting to left of his left foot, running upward along the margin and ending just below the cup: Παιδικος εγρα(φ)σεν.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} type C. {2} Beazley in ARV[2] says (as if the painter were unknown): "... a cup, contemporary with those that bear the signature of Paidikos as potter, but by another painter." {3} not in Add.[2]. {4} is this obscene? His buttocks and genitals are rather prominent.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Philadelphia Market. - The only painter's signature by Paidikos; elsewhere he signs once with epoiesen (alabastron) and 6-8 times without a verb (cups). If this signature is not an error, it would mean (see note 2) that the cups signed Paidikos as potter were by other painters and that we have only one cup painted by Paidikos. See also ARV[2] 102. Beazley [after Haspels] thought Paidikos the nickname of Pasiades; this might explain the subject of our cup (note 4).
