  • AVI Record Number: 3461
  • CAVI Collection: Exeter, University.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fragmentary RF pelike. Jena Painter (see ARV[2] 1510 and 1516). Ca. 400. 380 (R.M. Cook).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Orestes and Electra at the tomb of Agamemnon: at upper left, a reclining youth; below, to left of the tomb: head of a seated girl, and Orestes who is cutting off a lock of his hair; on the steps of the tomb at right: Pylades seated, with spears; at right, two women to left; the larger one, nearer the tomb, holds a water jar. B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: On the middle step of the tomb's three-stepped base, in BG: [Αγα]μεμνονος. The names of Orestes and Electra seem also inscribed: above the girl with the water jar, horizontal: Elektra. No other inscription shows and Shapiro does not mention any other. But Robertson mentions the inscription, by mistake, of "a second girl": Ismene (not Chrysothemis as expected).
  • CAVI Comments: Typical fourth-century writing.
  • CAVI Number: 3461
