  • AVI Record Number: 7309
  • CAVI Collection: Once Roman Market (Rosi).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. Eupolis Painter. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 450 (Shapiro).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Tydeus seated on a rock, with Athanasia and Athena; the head of Melanippus{1}. B (including figures under the handles): Warrior Leaving Home.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: beside Tydeus' head, to right of his face: [Τυδε]υ(ς){2}. To right of the back of Athena's head: Αθεναια. Above Athanasia's head: [Αθα]να[σια].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley; see JHS. Studniczka had Perseus, Andromeda and Athena. For this, Shapiro cites C. von Paucker, AZ 10 (1853) 450-58. {2} restored following Shapiro's [--]υς. The dr. has [--]υε, presumably a misreading of a four-stroke sigma.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley compares New York 12.229.14, where Athanasia is fully preserved and named. Athena had intended for Tydeus to have his wounds healed and to receive immortality, but he sucked the brain from the head of his opponent Melanippus and the offers were withdrawn.
