  • CAVI Collection: Amiens, Musee de Picardie 3057.225.47a.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF hydria. Acheloos Painter. Last quarter sixth. Ca. 515-510 (Rouen cat.).
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: chariot race: two chariots. Body: Heracles and Cerberus: Heracles; Athena turning to face Hermes; two-headed Cerberus held by Hermes; old man (Hades?).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: shoulder: under left chariot-horses: χενγ^ι. Similar under the right horses: χγχ^πλι. Body: to right of Heracles' face: (χ)γι^ε. To right of his middle: γχδ. Between H.' legs and Athena's skirt: δ(.)δχδο{2}. Between Athena's skirt and Cerberus: μκ(φ)^ογ(α), retr.{3}. To left of Hermes' face: ιγχ, retr. (or χγι, not retr.). To right of old man's head: σχγ (resembling kionedon).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the last two are probably one inscription, with Heracles' right arm intervening. {2} I cannot read the second letter. {3} the club intervenes. The phi resembles circular phi, except that the verticals are not centered; this is probably not a phi but a rho or an omicron.
  • CAVI Comments: Attic alphabet. Alpha with short vertical stroke? Gamma pointed and with uneven legs.
  • CAVI Number: 0122
