  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 846.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF skyphos. From Vulci. Pantoxena Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Eos and Tithonos; at left, a companion (Dardanos) with chlamys, petasos, and spears; another companion (Priam) with a lyre. B: boys fleeing to an old man.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Δαρδανος. To right of Eos: ḥεος. Above, a stoich. three-liner: Παντοξένα | καλὰ | Κορίνθο̅ι: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . {1}. [Τ]ιθ̣ονος. Πριαμος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} after de Ridder, facs. on p. 498; the third line is only vaguely stoich., if the facs. is to be trusted.
  • CAVI Comments: I translate: `Pantoxena is handsome for Korinthos (a man's name)'; see Immerwahr (1964), 21/6. I have not analyzed the letter forms, as the facss. may be defective. However, the general aspect of the lettering resembles Boston 10.224, AttScr (1990), no. 758, Fig. 138. Robertson: `Pantoxena is beautiful in Corinth', referring to Corinth's fame for prostitutes, which the vase painter may have visited. Cf. also Robertson's translation of the inscription on Boston 10.224 (he does not know Sprint Studies). Attic alphabet but with Ionic xi. Is Κορινθοι a place name or a personal name? In the entry for the fr. Boston 10.224 [CAVI 2765] I say that Robertson may be right with the former (this is also preferred by Pemberton and McPhee in ZPE) but the personal name in the dative would bring the phrase into conformity with the the common formula ο (or η) δεινα καλος (-η) τωι δεινα δοκει. The second alternative is preferred in the index to the printout of CAVI. See now Kadmos 46 (2007) 175-76.
