  • CAVI Collection: Munich 8935.+
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF calyx krater. Euphronios. Last quarter sixth. 510-500. 515-500 (`Euphronios').
  • CAVI Subject: A-B: symposium. (B: servants procuring wine for it{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: left to right: two on a couch: Θοδεμος. Μελας. A female flautist: Συκο. A blond youth on a couch: Σμικρος. A bearded man sitting on a couch and singing: Εχφαντιδες, for Εκφαντιδες. From his mouth: Ὄ̅πολλον, σέ τε(2) καὶ μάκαι[ραν], retr. B: Λεα[γρος | κ]α̣λος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} B has 3 figures: at right was a servant carrying an amphora on his back, a figure similar to the amphora bearer on the Smikros amphora. {2} τε Beazley in Para., γε Vermeule; Ionic gamma is probably not that early; see AttScr (1990), 135 and 180. {3} so Vierneisel, but I am not sure that this is the complete list of frs.; see the accounts in MüJb.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Philadelphia Market. + 9235-36, 9400, 9403-04{3}. A skolion (the meter a hipponacteum) addressed to Apollo and Artemis, cf. the proemium of the Theognidea. Differently Vermeule. See also the comments in ARV[2] 1619. For the proper names see D. Ohly in Münch. Jahrb. 22. Robertson, p. 26, says the pictures on the Smikros krater in Brussels are `reduced and simplied versions' of those on the Munich krater; on p. 29 he suggests that Syko, the old hetaera, was a real person. For a parallel to the name, see Jeffery (1961), 276/14, from Akrai in Sicily.
