  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of kantharos-like RF plastic vase (perhaps a rhyton). From Greece? Unattributed. First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Owl between olive sprigs.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the owl: Φανος̣.
  • CAVI Comments: + Louvre C 979 (K 591). Not necessarily complete before or aft. Beazley compares Athens N.M. 18,570 by a Brygan (Painter of London D 15), which has Φανος καλος. He wrongly thought the vertical to the left of the phi may have been a false start; it is part of the letter. Greifenhagen, AA 1957, 12 n. 11a omits the sigma. - Bothmer: the fr. joins a Brygan plastic vase in the shape of an owl in the Louvre [no doubt C 979]. B. thinks Phanos must be the same as that on ARV[2] 390-91/1-2.
  • CAVI Number: 2739
  • AVI Bibliography: Beazley (1957), 7/16, pl.6, fig. 5. — ARV[2] (1963), 1606. — Bothmer (1986a), 69 n. 20. — Add.[2] (1989), 390. — AttScr (1990), no. 1136. — Hoffmann (1997), 52 lists the Louvre fr. as a fr. of a rhyton (not Sotadean) but his interpretation of the inscription is clearly wrong.
