  • CAVI Collection: Naples 86,496.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF squat lekythos. From Cumae. Aison. Last quarter fifth. Ca. 420 (Shefton). 420-415 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Theseus and the Amazons. (The Amazons are lead by Anti ... (see below)).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Λαοδοκη. Θησ[ε]υς. Αντιανε[ιρα]. Κλυμενη. Φαληρος. Αρισστομα[χ]η. Μονιχος. Κρεοσα. Φυλακος. Αστυοχος. Ωκυα[λ]η. Τειθρας{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} these readings are from Bothmer. The ff. readings in L.-H., Eretria-Maler, differ: Λα̣οδοκη. Κ[ρεοσ]α [sic]. [Φ]υλ̣[ακος]. Αντι[..]ε[--]? (See above). Α[στυ]οχος. Αρισστομα[χη]. [Τε]ιθρας. Threatte (1996) thinks the form Λαοδικη is probably due to epic influence. [Actually the vase has Λαοδοκε, but the point is still valid.]
  • CAVI Comments: = RC 239. I have not seen pictures of the inscriptions. For the names of the Amazons, see Bothmer. For the names of the Greeks (mostly tribal heroes), see AttScr. Teithras is the eponymous hero of the deme Teithras. Gabrici and others read Αντιανε[ιρα] for the leader of the Amazons, but L.-H. on p. 198 suggests Antiope, without realizing that the last letter should be an eta, not an epsilon. For Phylakos see L.-H. 28 and nn. 359-60 as well as Kron. Boardman discusses the relation to the Shield of the Parthenos (or lack thereof). All figures are named.
