  • CAVI Lemma: RF oinochoe (chous). From Viterbo. Shuvalov Painter; workshop (Lezzi-Hafter). Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: `Zwei Knaben beim Unterricht': at left, a seated boy holding an open book roll and looking at his companion, who stands at right, holding a lyre; a bag hung up.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the book roll, nonsense, three horizontal lines stoich.: α(ο)δ̣ (λ)λο επ v{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} hastily. {2} my reading from the vase, which does not quite correspond to Immerwahr (1964) or Beazley in AJA, but the letters are not very clear. The first letter is an alpha with a horizontal cross bar; the second letter is probably an omicron with an extended loop rather than a rho as Beazley thought; the third letter is either an Attic lambda, in which case the next two lambdas would have to be read as Attic gammas (see also Beazley in AJA), or an incomplete delta, certainly not an iota; the fourth letter is disjointed and has a curving right hasta; the rest is clear.
