  • CAVI Collection: Boston 10.224.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of RF skyphos. From Piraeus. Pantoxena Painter (Polygnotan). Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: death of Orpheus (parts of two women).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Between them, horizontally: Παντοξενα {Παντοξενα} Κοριν(θ)οι {Κοριν(θ)οι} hορ̣ια {καλη}. καλαις. I.e., Παντοξενα | Κοριν(θ)οι | καλη (under the glaze). Παντοξενα | Κοριν(θ)οι | hορια | καλαισ (over the glaze).
  • CAVI Comments: Mixed alphabet. The underlined letters [[now in {}]] are under the glaze (i.e., in preliminary sketch) and were probably written in relief lines, showing up as raised. The text written on the glaze was copied from the preliminary version; the second line was copied twice, the second time wrongly. The inscriptions seem to be by different hands. ARV[2]'s comments are superseded by Immerwahr (1964a). Of other vases by this painter, Cab. Méd. 846 [[CAVI 6229]], has: Παντοξενα καλα Κορινθοι, and London E 509.4 has a different three-line inscription (see ARV[2] 1050/1 and 3). A parallel for raised letters under the glaze, with the inscription repeated (correctly) over the glaze, is Berlin 2264, RF cup by Oltos. The vase is said by Furtwängler not to have any other preliminary sketch. - Robertson, not knowing my article, Immerwahr (1964a), reads: Pantoxena Korinthoi ho[ra]ia kalais. He intends it for: `Pantoxena is a handsome hen in Corinth' (the city famous for its prostitutes). horaia, literally, means `in season', by extension `in the bloom of youth'. kalais is reported, he says, as a Doric word for `hen'. [He may be right with `in Corinth', although the formula usually has a personal name in the dative rather than a place name, but he is wrong in the reading ho[ra]ia.]
