  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre CA 1587.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF kantharos. From Athens. Shuvalov Painter. Last quarter fifth. Late period (Lezzi-Hafter 88).
  • CAVI Subject: A: fragmentary; mostly the lower parts of figures: Heracles and Athena; at right, a servant. B: in the center, Eros holds out a live hare; at left, a boy with a lyre; at right, a boy.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: B: above the heads of Eros and the boy at left: Αλυπητο[ς]{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Pottier's reading. L.-H. 87 says the inscription is hard to read, gives: Αλυπ(.)το. (.) is a raised v-shaped sign (surely misread).
  • CAVI Comments: In applied white. L.-H. 87 interprets the inscription either as a genitive or with sigma as an adjective, translating: `fröhlich, ohne Sorge.' I think that Alypetos must be a proper name, see LGPN ii (found in the fourth century). But I agree that the name is here significant. Ionic lambda.
