  • CAVI Collection: London 98.7-16.5.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF stamnos. From Sorrento. Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth. 450-440.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Heracles and the centaur Eurytion{1}. B: three youths; column.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above the figures, horizontal two-liner in oblique stoich. (second line shifted 1/2 space to right): Πολυγνοτος | εγραψεν.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so ARV[2]; CVA, however, says `Heracles and Centaur. Deianeira(?). Oineus.' {2} Matheson, p. 217 and n. 16, clearly shows that Eurytion is not inscribed, nor are any other figures on A. In the cat. she does not mention an inscription for Eurytion. Robertson must be mistaken in giving Eurytion as inscribed. The ref. to Heracles and Dexamenos comes from Vollkommer (1988).
  • CAVI Comments: Listed as London 96.7-16.5 by Beazley, but see CVA and Add.[2] where the number is 98.7-16.5. Robertson: "the centaur is named Eurytion; and there is a tale of Herakles rescuing the daughter of one Dexamenos from a Centaur of that name." But see below note 2. The alphabet is Attic with psi. Tailed rho.
