  • AVI Record Number: 6659
  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre CA 987.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF plastic aryballos (head vase: woman's and African's heads). From Greece. Unattributed; Epilykos Class. Last quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Two cocks, between palmettes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On each side of the woman's neck, near the partition with the African's neck, in large letters, both inscriptions facing the woman: καλος and καλος, retr.
  • CAVI Comments: In JHS, Beazley says that it is impossible to tell whether the vase is by the same moulder as G 986; conceivably painted by Skythes. I rather think the kalos' refer to the African.
