  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Agora P 9189.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF bell krater. From Athens. Manner of Dinos Painter. Last quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: one maenad: Παιδια. Another: Θυμε̣[δια].(1)
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} my reading. Beazley has Θυμε[--] and thinks probably Θυμηδια [name of another maenad]. The sketch in Moore (1997), 197 shows the fourth letter as the upper part of a diagonal from upper left to center. This does not jive with the restoration of Thymedia, whether with epsilon or eta. The sketch must be in error. Moore's index on p. 419 has Θυμ[ηδια(?).
  • CAVI Comments: Four frs. Shapiro illustrates one of the four frs. Large and clear letters, somewhat faded. For Thymedia, cf. Boston 00.352, RF oinochoe by the Kraipale Painter, ARV[2] 1214/1 and AttScr (1990), no. 1007, as restored by me in TAPA 77 (1946) 252.
