  • CAVI Collection: Bochum, Ruhr Universität, Kunstsammlungen S 508.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF calyx krater. Tithonos Painter (not by Beazley). First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: woman with lyre to right, looks back (Sappho?). B: woman to right looks back.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: "Vom Kopf der Musikantin geht rückläufig eine Inschrift aus, die den Namen Sappho zu enthalten scheint" (Stähler). The same statement in `Symposion' with the ff. addition: "Ob die Dichterin selbst dargestellt ist oder die Inschrift nur eine Anrufung der Sappho ausdrücken soll, muss offen bleiben."{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} The ph. in `Symp.' shows the inscription obscurely: Σαφ[φ]ος, retr., with sigmas facing to right. Uncertain reading. [I think this is not in Threatte (1980).] [If the last letter is right, and it is gen., then it should be the name of the girl. Is the inscription ancient?]
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Wuppertal, Funcke. The woman on B is probably listening to the musician on A.
  • CAVI Number: 2534
