  • AVI Web:
  • AVI Record Number: 2381
  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 2443.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. From Pikrodafni (ancient Halimous), Attica. Achilles Painter. Second quarter fifth. Early. Ca. 460. 460/55-450 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Woman (nurse?) handing a baby to a seated woman.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the infant [sic?] and below the rim, stoich. left-aligned three-liner: Δρομιππος καλος Δρομοκλειδο. {1}
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the inscription is to right of the left woman's face, close to the top margin and thus above the baby.
  • CAVI Comments: Second white used. - Oakley 63-64 thinks this is an everyday scene, whereas Reilly (1989), 426-427 had interpreted the scene as a wedding scene, with the bride being handed the παις αμφιθαλης. - Ionic alphabet. -Oakley, p. 11, wrongly states that the diphthong ει in Δρεομοκλειδο is represented either by epsilon or iota (his text is unclear), but the ph. shows a certain ει.
