  • AVI Record Number: 5283
  • CAVI Collection: Munich 2416.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF kalathos{1}. From Agrigento. Brygos Painter. 480-470. Very late (see ARV[2]).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Sappho and Alcaeus. B: Dionysus and a maenad.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above and to right of Alcaeus' head: Αλκαιος. From his open mouth: οοο οο{2}. Between the lower parts of the figures: Δαμα[ς] κα(λ)ος. To right of (behind) Sappho's head: Σαφο, i.e., Σαφ[φ]ο. B: to right of Dionysus' mouth: καλος{3}. To left of the maenad's mouth: καλος, retr.{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} "kalathoid vase with spout," ARV[2]. {2} five small circles in two groups: they represent the sounds of singing, not letters. {3} in position as if spoken, although they are not.
  • CAVI Comments: Furtwängler attributed the vase to the Brygos Painter and Beazley finally agreed; it would be very late; Robertson 118 wonders whether the Dokimasia Painter is possible. On the ancient sources for the legends see FR ii.
