  • CAVI Collection: London E 161.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. From Vulci. Syriskos Painter. First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: symposium: three men reclining. Body: Menelaus pursuing Helen; at right, a woman.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Shoulder: hο παις καλος, retr.{1}. Body: between Menelaus and Helen: hο παυς{2}. To left of Helen's face: καλε. To Helen's right, wavy: hο πα(λ)ος{3}. [Nearby?]: καλος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so CVA; the first sigma four-stroke and not retr., the second three-stroke and retr. {2} so the dr.; C. Smith has hο παις, retr. {3} so the dr.; the lambda upside down?
  • CAVI Comments: = 1843.11-3.86. My readings and the rendering in CVA and C. Smith do not correspond in all detail; Smith is probably more accurate than CVA. I do not know how accurate the dr. is. Some sigmas are four-stroke, perhaps reversed.
