  • CAVI Collection: Toledo 72.54.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. Rycroft Painter (Bothmer). Last quarter sixth. Ca. 520 (Shapiro). 520-510 (Boulter–Luckner).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Ransom of Hector: Hermes; an attendent carrying a tripod and a stack of three phialae; Priam; Achilles reclining; a woman [Briseis?] with a hydria{1}. B: Departure of a Warrior, in a chariot.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Mainly nonsense: A: to right of Hermes' face; (κ)(ε)(.)[h]ερμε[ς]. Around Priam's head: (δ)ο(γ)(.)αδ(.). B: to right of the charioteer's face: σσυσ. To right of an old man's face, similar: τλοσ{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Shapiro thinks she is a servant to wash Hector's corpse rather than Briseis. {2} the sigma is a reversed three-stroke sigma.
  • CAVI Comments: Very small letters, quite different from the sense inscriptions on London B 195. The inscriptions are sloppy and CVA's facss. are hard to decipher; B.&L. do not explain them. My readings are therefore uncertain. It is hard to distinguish the letters from drips.
