  • CAVI Collection: Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum 9.17.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. Pig Painter. Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: two countrymen with two pigs (one man with a bag over his shoulder, the other carrying a pole with baskets), perhaps Odysseus and Eumaeus{1}. B: man and youth.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: between the heads, Gr. after firing, with perhaps a trace of a dipinto: νεο(.)ο.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so CVA; at 1659 Beazley says that the subject is uncertain, but he compares Tübingen E 120.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Hope collection. The Gr. no doubt modern: the first two letters are lower-case Greek; that marked (.) is the lower half of a circle, in which is a Dip. upsilon of sorts. Perhaps there was an original painted inscription. Tillyard read ΕΔΩΟ.
