  • CAVI Collection: Adria Bc 104.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of RF bell krater. From Adria. Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Death of Laios: at left, just below the top rim: club of a missing figure (Oedipus); part of a male figure (Sikon) with raised club; chariot horses; upper part of a female with raised right arm (Kalliopa).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: near Oedipus' club: [Ο]ιδιποδες{1}. By the left-hand male: Σικον. The woman: Καλλιοπα.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so M., p. 262; [Ο]ιδιποδης p. 350 (cat.).
  • CAVI Comments: Alphabet Ionic. - The phot. in CVA shows the first inscription. Sikon's club is his goad with which he hit Oedipus. Beazley (ARV[2] 1678) considered Kalliopa a muse representing all muses; C. Robert (1915), ii, 315 a single muse in company of others. Perhaps a figure in Laius' retinue (CVA). But according to Robertson, Kalliope marks the locale as Parnassus where the Muses walk. Webster (1972) connects the scene with the Laius of Aeschylus; but the vase is about 20-25 years later than the play (467 B.C.). M. suggests Sophocles' OT.
