  • CAVI Collection: Berlin inv. 3228.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF pelike. From Orvieto. Unattributed. Ca. 500 (Mommsen).
  • CAVI Subject: A: at the well: in the center, an old man pulls up the rope from which a pelike is suspended (out of the well; the well head is a pithos); at left, a tree supports the arrangement with a counterweight; further to left, a satyr is greeted by a seated woman; to right of the well, a woman with pelike and amphora.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: above the supporting branch: four imitation letters. Below it, similar, interrupted by the tree trunk. To right of the old man: three - four imitation letters. Under the foot, Gr.: chi surmounted by rho. Not in Johnston (1979).
  • CAVI Comments: For the interpretation of the scene, see CVA, pp. 36-37. Buschor thought of an early satyr play (forerunner of Aeschylus' Amymone); Mommsen prefers evryday life, with the satyr introducing an erotic element.
