  • CAVI Collection: Unlocated, Private.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF skyphos{1}. Unattributed{2}. Second quarter fifth. Ca. 460 (Cahn). 460-450 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: A: a queen or goddess with a scepter holds out a phiale toward a woman with an oinochoe moving away from her while turning back; behind the first woman, a stool. B: at right, a woman holding a mirror and kalathos moves to right, but turns back toward another woman, who stretches out her arms toward her.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of the left woman's face: Θεβε. B: in a similar position (a bit lower): Σαλαμις.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} of Corinthian type. {2} Cahn compares the Stieglitz and Euaichme Painters (so also Oakley); the ornament recalls Polygnotos II. {3} so also the entry in the Beazley Archive.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Basel Market (M.M.). The inscriptions are widely spaced and Cahn says it is uncertain to which figure each refers; but I think they go with the left-hand figures (the servants){3}. Both Thebe and Salamis are local nymphs, daughters of Asopus (Cahn). Four-stroke sigma.
