  • CAVI Collection: Naples Stg. 281.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. From Sorrento. Lykaon Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: symposium with pyrrhiche: at left, a couch with a bearded man and a youth; at right, a couch with two youths, that on the right playing the flutes; in the center, in front, an armed dancer. B: komos.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: the inscriptions above the heads: the bearded man: Ευαινετος. A youth on the same couch: καλος. The girl: Παρ[1-2]ιστε{1}. The third symposiast, bearded: Καλλιας{2}. Above the youth acompanying the girl with the flutes, slightly curved: Ευαιον.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Beazley in CB: the third letter "is more like a rho than anything else; there is room for one letter, possibly two, between it and the iota. The name ought to be Pantariste, but if so the painter has miswritten it..." I read in the photo.: Παν[..]ιστε, which does not give enough space for the name without a mistake by the painter. Matheson prints Γαλ[...]ιστε, but I do not know whether the first letter is intended for a gamma or a pi. M. also prints Ευαι[ο]ν καλος, in error. Euaion is here without kalos. {2} Beazley says a youth: my error? A vacat after the first letter.
  • CAVI Comments: There is much on Euaion in CB: he is here depicted as a portrait with his friends.
