  • CAVI Collection: Lost.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF lekythos. Sappho Painter; probably (Haspels). Ca. 500. 480-470 (Andreae). Ca. 480 (Shapiro).
  • CAVI Subject: Heracles shooting Alkyoneus, with Athena and Hypnos.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: to left and right of Heracles' left leg: (γ)ι^ουιχ. To right of his forehead: στισ. To left and right of Athena's head: τισ^ι and further down: υ. Scattered near Hypnos: ι(ο)τ, τιυ and ισισ{1}. The readings are not certain.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Danali-G. reads τισις and αλσει (I do not know to which of the nonsense inscriptions she is referring for the second) and compares αλσει on Athens, NM 460. She considers the latter a stage direction, which may be right, although her readings of the Sappho vase are not acceptable.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Hamilton collection. Andreae uses the inscriptions for the attribution, referring to Haspels (1936), 96.
