  • AVI Record Number: 6504
  • LIMC ID: 12027
  • LIMC Web:
  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre G 197.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF amphora. From Vulci. Myson. First quarter fifth. Ca. 480.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Croesus on the pyre. B: Theseus and Antiope.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of Croesus' lower body: Κροεσος, for Κροισος. Above a stooping servant's back: Ευθυμος. B: Above Theseus' helmet: Θεσευς{1}. To right of Antiope's face: Αντιοπε. To right of Perithoos' face: (Π)εριθος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} CVA gives dotted theta, FR, cartwheel. For the spelling oe for oi, FR thinks of non-Attic origin and compares London E 458, ARV[2] 239/16, by the same painter: Αεθρα, for Αιθρα. But see Kretschmer and Threatte (1980), p. 323.
  • CAVI Comments: Boardman discusses the contemporary view of Croesus; he is not certain that the Corinth frs. (T 1144, ARV[2] 571/74) depict the same episode. Cartwheel theta. Some sigmas are three-stroke, most are four-stroke.
