  • AVI Record Number: 5882
  • CAVI Collection: Oxford 251.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF lekythos. From Gela. Manner of Athena Painter (Haspels). First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: between eyes: a hunter with a spear; a doe having been hit by two spears (in thigh and head); a stag rushing off to right. [The lower legs and feet of hunter and front legs of right doe are missing.]
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Shoulder: (.)υον καλος̣ Κυνιππος{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Κυνιππος is known from the late fifth century, see LGPN ii who also lists the present vase, although it is not in Beazley. The ph. in Bérard shows: to lower right of the hunter, [--]λον (there probably was more at left, not in ph. and probably lost). Above these letters, close to the right of thehunter's left arm: six small nonsense (imitation) letters in irregular sequence, typical of Athena Painter nonsense. To the smitten doe's right, vertically down and facing it: καλο(ς) (the sigma indistinct). Below the stag's belly, horizontal: Κυν..., the rest cut off by the ph.
  • CAVI Comments: Listed as Oxford 1889.1013, ABL 262/1. - Haspels 161: shoulder: stag hunt. The inscription: (.)ΥΟN, ΚΑΛΟ(.) [Attic lambda], ΚΥNΙΠΠΟΣ [three-stroke sigma]. To left of the first word a piece is missing but H. disagrees with Gardner that there was room there for another letter. "Apart from these words, our painter strews a number of small blots in the field, which give the illusion of an inscription from a distance, but which do not even pretend to be mock letters." The kalos-name is not in Beazley, but see LGPN ii; the name Kynippos is found in Athens in the fifth century; see also PA 8945-46.
