  • CAVI Collection: Basel Market (M.M.).
  • CAVI Lemma: BF band cup. Unattributed. Third quarter sixth. Ca. 540 (Cahn).
  • CAVI Subject: Handle zone: A: between sphinxes in lieu of handle palmettes: duel of naked warriors (one with a Boeotian shield). B: similar.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to left of the duelists: nonsense inscription of 11 letters. To their right, similar: χαι plus six nonsense letters, perhaps: χαιραιρε... . B: similar.
  • CAVI Comments: Cahn says the inscriptions begin with χαι but end in nonsense, but the left inscription on one side (B?) does not seem to start this way; the right inscription does. The picture of the other side (A?) is too small to tell. -Clearly an illiterate attempt to write the drinking inscription.
