  • AVI Record Number: 4209
  • CAVI Collection: Leiden I.1956.8,1.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF/WG alabastron. Sappho Painter (Vos){1}. First quarter fifth. 490-480 (Vos).
  • CAVI Subject: Woman playing the lyre; woman dancing, with krotala; crane.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Between the crane and the lyre player: hο παλς. Miswritten. Between the two women: καλ(ο)[ς]. For hο παις καλος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} not in Beazley.
  • CAVI Comments: Large and coarse letters suiting the style of the Sappho Painter. Some strokes are rubbed off, e.g. the top of heta. CVA and I think the form is παλς, not παυς. For the latter, see now Threatte (1996), pp. 278-79. The omicron of kalos looks more like a badly written epsilon, but καλε seems excluded.
