  • CAVI Collection: Once Berlin 2471.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF squat lekythos. From Trachones (Attica). Eretria Painter. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 430. Ca. 425 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Dionysus with two satyrs and ten maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: The inscriptions are above the figures and horizontal (except the retr. inscription is to the left of a head facing left): Σιλενος. Ανθε[ι]α{1}. Μακαρια. Περικλυμενε. Φανοπε. Nυμφε. Nαια{2}. Διονυσος. Κο(μ)ος, retr. (see below){3}. Χορω{4}. Χρυσις. Κισσο. καλε (a nymph).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Ανθεια, L.-H. {2} for the name in the circle of Dionysus, see E. Simon, LIMC iii, s.v. Dione, p. 411. G. Neumann apud K.-D. wonders if to be completed as Nαια[ς]. {3} the picture (dr.?), pl. 144,d seems to show the first letter as a nu: Nομος, retr.? But Komos is no doubt correct. Miswritten? Furtw. prints Komos retr., except for the kappa; he gives the mu as an archaic-looking nu. {4} L.-H.: Χορω. But the picture in pl. 144,d shows an omicron open at the bottom and a bottom stroke at the right side, giving the illusion of a reversed omega, but the stroke looks to me like a flaw. However, there are instances of omega lacking the feet. However, there are instances of omega lacking the feet.
  • CAVI Comments: ARV[2], Add.[2], and Robertson give the present location as Berlin 2471, but Para. says: `believed lost,' K.-D. concurring. (The information comes from Greifenhagen.) Done from Beschr., which has no facsimiles and from L.-H. I have checked readings in K.-D. The vase is gilded. The inscriptions were originally reddish-white. - Shapiro 172 thinks Makaria may be an invention of the Eretria Painter who is otherwise known as an innovator in personifications. For the choice of names and the qu. of personifications see also L.-H. Makaria is not here the daughter of Heracles; it is the earliest instance of this personification; Reading 52.3.2 is later. L.-H. 227 speculates that Nymphe may also mean `bride' and that the vase may commemorate a dead person who has joined the Dionysiac thiasos. - It seems to me that many of the dancers are exhausted and that the vase celebrates the end of the dance. - Hedreen discusses the names Nymphe and Naia.
