  • CAVI Collection: Munich.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. From Greece. Achilles Painter. Ca. 450. 445-435 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Two Muses: woman standing to right; bird to left, on a rock; woman seated to left on a rock, playing the lyre; between them a small bird facing the left figure{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Between them, high, three-line tabella, stoich. and words centered as much as possible: Αξιοπειθης .......... καλος ..... Αλκιμαχο. ........ On the rock, i.e., below the seated muse, horizontally: hελικον [[h(ε), with a slightly larger space after the heta]].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} probably a nightingale; see Oakley 65 n. 35, although other identifications have been suggested.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Lugano, von Schön 80. Kurtz (1975), 46-48 and Wehgartner (1983), 190 n. 26 are inclined to believe that the vase is not by the Achilles Painter, but Oakley 65 n. 32 shows that the lekythos was made in the Achilles Painter workshop, and he maintains the attribution. Mixed alphabet (the tabella Ionic, Helikon mixed).
