  • AVI Record Number: 7333
  • CAVI Collection: St. Petersburg.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: squat lekythos with relief decoration. From Zminyj Kurgan South of Kerch (Panticapaeum). Related to Xenophantos Painter. First quarter fourth.
  • CAVI Subject: In relief: Persians hunting. (Brief version of subject of St. Petersburg St. 1790).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: In the same location as the signature on St. 1790 [so Tiverios]: in relief: Ξενοφαντος εποιεσε Αθεναιος{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} listed by Tiverios as inv. 108i. {2} the inscription is given by Tiverios as ΞΕNΟΦΑNΤΟΣ ΕΠΟΙΗΣΕN ΑΘΗNΑΙΟΣ, which does not agree with ARV[2] (which is given above). The inscription first read by Waldhauer in 1920.
  • CAVI Comments: The same inscription is found on St. Petersburg St. 1790, also in relief, but it is there in the Ionic alphabet. Presumably not by the same hand, although Tiverios thinks they are. Tiverios, p.277: both vases are by the same potter-painter (while Beazley speaks of a Xenophantos Painter). For other attributions see ibidem. Mixed alphabet. Three- and four-stroke sigma.
