  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre MNB 910.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF lekythos. Sappho Painter. First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Apollo citharoedus, with a doe; four women (Muses) dancing, two with crotala, one with a lyre, the last playing the flutes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense, with imitation letters: there is a vertical inscription to the left of each dancer: 1. πυ(.)υονο̣^υο(.){1}. 2. six letters (3 + 3): υ(ο)(.)ου{2}. 3. seven letters (1 + 1 + 5, the flutes intervene). I have no record of the fourth inscription.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} an arm intervenes. But I counted 11 letters in the photo in Queyrel. {2} this reading is from another photo, on which I saw only 5 letters; Queyrel's photo shows six.
  • CAVI Comments: Partly disjointed letters. The women are considered Muses by Queyrel and in LIMC.
  • CAVI Number: 6700
