  • CAVI Collection: Harvard 1960.345.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. From Vari. Hephaistos Painter (Later Mannerist). 430-420.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Bouzyges(1) and the first plow; olive tree; woman{2}. B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Graffiti: Modern: redrawn: B: Διο^κλες ^ hαλαι^ευς. A: continued from B: Κε...πια.{3}. Ancient: Δι̣οκ̣λ̣ε̣[ς] ḥα̣λα[ι]ε̣υ̣[ς] | [Κ]εκροπιδ̣ο̣ς.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley puts a question mark. {2} falsely identified with Athena by Robinson, see Beazley (1938). {3} ^ shows intervening heads, which are not disturbed by the inscription; in the first rendering (called `Modern') single underlining [[both final sigmas]] shows letters that are partially redrawn on plaster; double underlining [[αι of hαλαι^ευς, Κ of Κε...πια..]] shows letters fully in the plaster; the other letters are ancient. [However, the rendering of the inscription above is unclear: the second alpha of Halaieus and the kappa of Κε..πια... are partially in plaster; the two final sigmas and the iota of Halaieus are totally in plaster. In the last line (`Ancient:'), which is based on Beazley's photo, both the dotted and undotted letters are ancient.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Baltimore, Robinson. From a cemetery at Vari, Attica. Robinson says some bones were found in the vase. A photo in Beazley's possession showed the vase before its reconstruction. Large coarse letters. Mixed alphabet.
