  • CAVI Collection: Braunschweig, Museum 219.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria (kalpis). From Nola. Near Hector Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: concert of women with Erotes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Inscriptions mostly above heads: Ευφημια. Κλεοδοξα. [Ι]μερος. Non-stoich. two-liner: κ(α)λε | Κλεοφωνι̣ς̣{1}. Κλεοδικ[η]. Φανοδικη. To left of the flying Eros' groin: καλος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the photo in CVA shows no trace of kappa, which is however given in CVA's text and in ARV[2]. Shapiro gives Kleophonia; Himeros and Kleodike are also given complete.
  • CAVI Comments: Webster (1972), 71 suggests that all the names are those of actual professional musicians in Athens; but Shapiro (1993), 115 n. 250, suggests that Euphemia should perhaps be a personification. LIMC iv, 67, s.v. Euphemia, discusses an Apulian vase with Euphemia. Eupheme was a nurse of the muses (Paus. 9.25,5). - Kleophonis is given as a kalos-name in ARV[2] 1615; the name occurs without kale on a RF bell krater, Group of Polygnotos, in Agrigento, ARV[2] 1055/64. However I think it is here a punning name; all the names seem brought in for the occasion (cf. AttScr). Kleodoxa occurs as the name of a flute player on a hydria in Florence (see CVA: AZ 8 [1850], pl. 21, etc.) and a stamnos by Polygnotos, London E 454, ARV[2] 1028/14. Some of the names are thus real, but nevertheless used as punning names here. kalos refers to the Eros. - The inscriptions incomplete and not accurate in M. Mixed alphabet (mainly Ionic).
