  • CAVI Collection: Palermo, Museo Nazionale 12,480.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF oinochoe. Eretria Painter. Third quarter fifth. 435-430 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Arrival(?) of a youth(2): Pandion before Prokne and two other women.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Πα[νδι]ο[ν]. [Πρ]οκνε. Θεώ. Χρυσε[ις]{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} or 1280? (Beazley). {2} ARV[2]; in AJA, Beazley says: `Pandion pouring libation before departure', and compares Syracuse 30,747 [RF bell krater by the Dinos Painter, ARV[2] 1153/17, A: warrior (Pandion) leaving home.] The problem is that Pandion appears as a youth before his daughter Prokne. L.-H. agrees with the idea of departure. Robertson (1992), 237 discusses the names. {3} Gabrici differs in two names: Παν̣[δι]ο[ν]. [Χ]ρ̣υσε[ι]ς. Χρυσεις, ARV[2].
  • CAVI Comments: = Palermo inv. 1280, 12,480, N.I. 484. Formerly: Museo S. Martino alle Scale. According to L.-H., the inscriptions are no longer visible. Pandion son of Erichthonios was the father of Prokne: so why is he shown as a youth? For the subject see Kron (1976), 117, and E.B. Harrison, Hesp. Suppl. 20 (Thompson Festschrift, 1982) 72-75. L.-H. in AK discussed the vase and at that time thought it early; she compared it with Agrigento V 1568 (same shape).
