  • CAVI Collection: Amsterdam, Allard Pierson Museum 8209.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. Unattributed. 500 (Hemelrijk). 500-490 (Wolf).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a bearded komast with oinochoe and skyphos, running to right. A: at right, Dionysus reclining; at left, a satyr with drinking horn to right and satyr near a full wineskin to left. B: Heracles reclining in the cave of Pholos: at left, two centaurs attacking; at right, top of a pithos, with partially opened lid.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Readings from Hemelrijk, CVA: nonsense: Int.: (after fig. 8,c:) on the komast's left, starting at the head, and curving downward following the margin: χαλοκ^εχ(.)(1); on the komast's right, starting at head, similar: χαλοεhο. A: [no doubt at head height and roughly horizontal:] fig. 8,e: λοαχhροια; also: καλοι(.), retr.{2}; also two letters at some distance from the preceding and from each other: κ and >. B: [no doubt similar to A:] fig. 8,f: (.)λοχχ; and at a distance, `quotation marks'. On the rim of the pithos: [no doubt in BG:] χ(σ)ο9λ), with one empty space at right(3); on the rim of the open lid, well spaced: χhοεh. Under foot, Gr. hε [[lig.]]{4}. Readings from Wolf: the ph., fig. 130, shows to right of Heracles, at the right end of the scene, a huge pithos; above it, diagonally, a bar which looks to me like the cover which has just been opeed. On the cover are letters in BG: χh(θ)εν. Possibly another letter is hidden in a smudge. On the rim of the pithos itself are similar letters: [.]καλο(ι)χ, retr. (to judge by the lambda).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} a leg intervenes; the last letter a dot. Should be retr., but I did not note it. {2} the last letter unclear. The inscriptions on the Ext. are reproduced very small in CVA, and the readings are not quite certain. {3} this could be read retr.; the letter indicated by 9 is probably omicron S 8 or 9 in the chart in AttScr. {4} cf. Johnston (1979), 11B, fig. 4,f.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Amsterdam, Six (no. 29). - Hemelrijk: "The inscriptions seem to show that the painter could not write very well: they are corrupted from "kalos" and perhaps "epoiesen"." - The pithos, left by Dionysus, was to be kept closed until Heracles arrived (Diodorus 4.12.3); when opened it attracted the other centaurs which led to the battle. See Wolf, pp. 171-72. Are the nonsense inscriptions placed on the pithos to indicate Dionysus' command?
