  • CAVI Subject: Symposium: at left, two naked youths dancing, one with a wineskin of unusual shape, the other with two long sticks; in the center a burning lamp [so L.-H.; it looks more like a kottabos-stand]. At right, a couch, on which sit a girl playing the flutes and a man.

  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Class of Ferrara T 108A (Green). {2} after Beazley.
  • CAVI Comments: = T 108 A VP (so listed in L.-H.). Theatrical names? Dipsio is curious, since women were not allowed to drink, at least in public.
