  • CAVI Collection: Tarentum, Museo Nazionale 4529.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of RF lekanis. Manner of Meidias Painter{1}; Meidias Painter (Burn). Last quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: On the left: the right-hand figures of a group: Apollo and Artemis. At right, the left-hand figures of another group: Agamemnon sitting pensively on a rock; a youth in his chlamys and with two spears stands before him.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above, and to right of, Apollo's head, near the top margin: Απολλων. To right of Artemis' thighs: Αρτεμις. At the bottom of the scene, to left of Agamemnon's right foot and below his scepter: Αγαμεμνων.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} may be by the painter himself (Beazley).
  • CAVI Comments: The inscriptions are in unusual positions. For a pensive Agamemnon Beazley compares the fr. of a pot at Paestum by the Meidias Painter, ARV[2] 1314/19. Burn thinks Agamemnon is not pensive as Beazley said but in turmoil. She suggests the scene is connected with the sacrifice of Iphigeneia, comparing Euripides' Iphigeneia in Aulis. Apollo and Artemis may be watching Iphigeneia's approach. To left of Agamemon's rock there is a flower not mentioned by Burn.
