  • CAVI Lemma: Plain hydria. From Athens. Unattributed. Late sixth (Lang). 520-480 (context).
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Around the top of the rim, Gr.: Τιτας Ολυ[ν]πιον̣[ι]κ̣ος καταπυγον̣.
  • CAVI Comments: For the accuracy of Lang (1976), pl. 4, see Immerwahr (1982), 61, n. 13. The letters ν̣[ι]κ̣ are quite uncertain. Vox suggests τιτας Ολυ[ν]πιοδ̣[ο]ρ̣ος καταπυγον and interprets τιτας as `paederast'. But the word order would be odd. See further, Immerwahr (1982). Threatte (1996), 15, after examination of the vase, inclines to Lang's reading; he says that the dr. in Lang (1976) is completely misleading although the Agora file card has an accurate dr.; see further for discussion of the individual letters. On pp. 67-68, T. discusses the name Τιτας which need not be Athenian; the gen. Τιτα is found in two Sicilian inscriptions.
