  • CAVI Subject: Upper left-hand corner: dotted egg frieze on top; hand.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the hand, in the upper middle of the scene, non-stoich. two-liner: Διφι[λος] | καλο̣[ς]{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the sketch in Moore (1997), 241, differs slightly: Διφι[λος] | καλος. The ph. does not show the inscription.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley distinguishes this Diphilos from the son of Melanopos (mainly early Achilles Painter) as Diphilos III; he may be the same as Diphilos without kalos on London E 389, by the Kraipale Painter (ARV[2] 1214/5); or he may be a later one. D. also occurs without kalos on Chicago Uni., a small white lekythos (AttScr (1990), no. 673), which is earlier. The dating of these Diphiloi needs further study.
