  • CAVI Collection: New York 09.221.40.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pyxis. Manner of Meidias Painter. Last quarter fifth. 420-410 (Richter).
  • CAVI Subject: Aphrodite and her companions.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Most inscriptions above the heads, but Peitho is written to right of her face and Aponia along the figure's back: Πειθω. Αφ[ρ]οδιτη. hυγιεια. Ευδαιμονια. Παιδια. Ευκλεα{1}. Α̣πονια.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Ευκλε[ι]α, Shapiro.
  • CAVI Comments: Ευδαιμονια: see Beazley in AJA. Απονια: Shapiro: Aponia faces Eukleia who is carrying a chest; neither has an attribute. Her name is squeezed in vertically for reasons of space. The initial alpha was not recognized until after the plate in Richter–Hall was made: see Beazley (1950), 320. Aponia may have a political meaning, as πονος was a code word for the Peloponnesian War; cf. Boegehold (1982a), 147-52. Hence απονια = ειρηνη. Ionic, but note heta.
