  • AVI Record Number: 3880
  • CAVI Collection: Hamburg, Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe 1981.173.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF oinochoe{1}. Manner of Triptolemos Painter (Schauenburg). Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: To right of the handle: a naked man, bearded and with his chlamys behind him, his left arm outstretched, running to right while holding his erect penis in his left hand. To left of the handle: Oriental (Persian archer, Schauenburg) in sleeved and legged costume leaning forward, facing right but the head frontal and his hands raised to it, the gorytos hanging from his left arm.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Starting to right of left figure's head and continuing to to the Persian's right foot: Εὐρυμέδον εἰμ[ί], κυβάδε̣ hέστεκα{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} type VII, which is discussed at length by Schauenburg. {2} κυβαδε is discussed by Schauenburg on p. 103. S. Laser (see 103 n. 38a) suggested κυβαλες or κυβατες. - hεστεκα: Threatte (1996), 608.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Germany, Private. - Francis translates: `I am Eurymedon. I stand bent over.' - Schauenburg thinks the Persian is named after the battle at the Eurymedon and the Greek intends to sodomize him; probably from a theatrical farce. [Note that the figures are on the sides of the oinochoe and cannot be seen at the same time.] Differently Pinney.
