Idem, p. 204: "As mentioned above, I saw no trace of the inscriptions, but the cup is in want of cleaning." Heydemann: A: Χρυσις. Ανδρομ[α]χε. καλε. B: καλε. Ιππολυτε. καλε. L.-H.: A: Χ----.

  • CAVI Comments: = 2613. The surface must have suffered since Heydemann. His readings must be accepted. L.-H. 155: some names are not true Amazon names: Chrysis. kale (3 times). Andromache and Hippolyte probably refer to the two shield-bearing Amazons. The `queen Amazon' on the Int. may be Antiope, cf. LIMC i, s.v. Antiope II.
