  • CAVI Collection: St. Petersburg 649.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. Makron. Hieron, potter. First quarter fifth. 490-480 (Peredol’skaya). Hauptwerk II (Kunisch).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Theseus attacking Aithra. A: Diomedes and Odysseus quarreling, with the two Palladia. B: Greek princes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On handle B/A [K. says A/B; he reverses A and B], on the right hasta [in the BG, no doubt], Gr.: hιερον εποι(ε)σεν{1}. Int.: Αι(θ)ρα{2}. Θεσ[ευ]ς{3}. A: Διομεδες. Δ(ε)μο(φ)αον{4}. Αγαμεσμον. Φο[ινιχς]{5}. Ολυττευς. B is not inscribed. There is a mercantile Gr.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} K. (sketch) gives the bracketed epsilon = a drachma sign. {2} K. (sketch): theta = omicron. {3} K. (sketch): ΘΕΣ Σ (with two three-stroke sigma). {4} K. (sketch): epsilon = u-shaped digamma; phi = theta. {5} My note from CB gives Φο[ι]νιχς.
  • CAVI Comments: = inv. 1543. = St. 830. C. Sourvinou-Inwood, on pl. 1,a, suggests Aithra to be a mistake for Medea, but Robertson is unsure; it could be an unknown myth in which Theseus, having just discovered the sword, attacks his mother. From the facss. in Peredol’skaya: Int.: Αι(θ)ρα. Θεσ[ευ]ς. A: Διομεδες. Ολυττευς. B: Δεμοφ{α}ον. Αγαμεσμον. (Φ)ο[ινιχς]. Ακ(.)[--]. Under foot, Gr.; see P., pl. 174,7: γλυ(?). Not in Johnston (1979).
