  • AVI Record Number: 3208
  • CAVI Collection: Cologne, Wallraf-Richartz Museum.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF oinochoe (mug). Unattributed (see comments). First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A bearded man with his stick, seated and talking to a naked boy.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of the man's face: Πριαπε. Along the stick, vertically down and facing the stick rather than the boy: hιπ[π]ια(δ)ες.
  • CAVI Comments: ARV[1] lists this vase as belonging to a group of mugs that have the kalos-name Hiketes and are related to late Douris (who has Hiketes on two late cups, Christchurch AR 430 and Bonn 464.34+, ARV[2] 438/138 (= ARV[1] 288/115) and 439/159). Mention of the Cologne mug has dropped out of ARV[2], hence it is probably not stylistically related to the Hiketes mugs (see also ARV[2] 815, top). - Πριαπε is a prayer to the god uttered by the man. Hippiades should be the boy's name despite the position. The vase has a clear hιπιαγες, but the gamma is probably a delta with the bottom stroke omitted; neither Hippiages nor Hippiades are in PA, Pape or LGPN ii. Delta without cross stroke; four-stroke sigma.
