  • CAVI Collection: London 1921.7-10.2.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria (kalpis). Group of Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth. Mid-fifth (Williams).
  • CAVI Subject: Concert of two seated women with lyres, with five other women; a column; a chest; at left a flying Eros with a wreath; tablets hung up. The woman at right holds a (partially preserved) book roll, not inscribed.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Under the foot, Gr.: AV [[lig.]] or AN [[lig.]], ΠΟΙ (Attic pi), VΔΡΙ{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Johnston in the three places where he lists this vase. CVA has: ΥΔΙΔΡΑΧΠΟΙΑ/, and explains: 1 hydria for 5 dr. 1 obol, which is certainly wrong. The reference in CVA to Hackl (1909), 51, 71 does not yield intelligible information. - I have a letter from ... (illegible) of 9/30/67 reporting that Anne Birchall at the BM considered the Gr. on London 1921.7-10.2 before firing. But Johnston in Johnston (1979), does not think that any of these Grr. are pre-firing.
  • CAVI Comments: ΠΟΙ is for ποικιλος, `decorated,' cf. Basel, Antikenmuseum BS 407. - Williams translates: "hydria two drachmai painted," and transcribes in Roman: hy 2 drach poi. The photo seems to show, curved around the center, facing out: υδ[] | δραχ[] ποι[] (without word separation), and the ligature of alpha and upsilon: AV [[lig.]]. I think W. reads a second vertical stroke which is very faint in the photo.
