  • Provenance: ITALY, SICILY, GELA
  • Date: -475 to -425
  • Inscriptions: Named: HIPPARCHOS, [ARM]ODIOS
  • Decoration: A: TYRANNICIDES, HARMODIOS AND HIPPARCHOS (BOTH NAMED)
  • Last Recorded Collection: Gela, Museo Archeologico
  • Publication Record: Journal of Hellenic Studies: 68 (1948) 27, FIG.1
  • CAVI Collection: Gela. Duplicate of 7173 (Villa Giulia 50,321), q.v.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of RF skyphos. From Gela. Unattributed. Second quarter fifth. *P. Orsi, NSc 1900, 276/(c). Beazley, JHS 68 (1948) 27, fig. 1. T.B.L. Webster, Potter and Patron in Classical Athens (1972) 77.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Death of Hipparchos (story of tyrannicides): a raised arm holding [a sword] above the head; at left, a bearded man.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the bearded man: [b] Ιππ(α)(ρ)χος[/b]. Above the other figure: [b] [Αρμ]οδιος[/b].(1)
  • CAVI Footnotes: (1)Orsi gives the inscriptions in the Ionic alphabet, but I am not sure that this is right.
  • CAVI Comments: Orsi thinks another RF skyphos fr., also from Gela, NSc 1900, 276/(d), q.v., may belong, but the subject is evidently different and (according to Webster) Beazley does not connect the two frs.; it could of course be from the other side. Webster thinks the four representations of the Murder of Hipparchus, being all of 475-460, are reflections of the post-Persian Group of the Tyrannicides by Critias and Nesiotes. - Now in Palermo?
