  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 251.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF stamnos. Unattributed. Ca. 530.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Dionysus with kantharos, with a satyr and two maenads. B: The Struggle for the Tripod, with Leto (or Artemis?); deer.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: B: partly nonsense or mock inscriptions: Between the foreheads of Heracles and Apollo: hεαριος. To right of Heracles' face: αφχνγα(.)τ, retr.{1}. To left of Leto's face: Λετος(χ), retr.{2}. Under the foot, Gr.: Attic lambda and Etruscan 8. See Johnston (1979), 107/24B 16. There are also some other signs, cf. CVA.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} I have not a good reading of this; CVA does not consider it retr. and prints: τσασχφα. De Ridder has: εσδυσαοα. There is a glare in the photo, but I saw ...οστ, retr. {2} CVA has: αετοσχ, retr., and interprets: Αετος, which is also de Ridder's understanding.
  • CAVI Comments: The first and last inscription look like bowdlerized names of Heracles and Leto, but it is hard to read the second in any way as Apollo. An illiterate?
