  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Ceramicus 4290.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF oinochoe (chous). From Athens, Ceramicus. Meidias Painter (Knigge){1}. Last quarter fifth. Ca. 430, early (Knigge). 425-420 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Amymone with a water jar surprised by four satyrs, two on each side.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the fourth satyr: Ενα[υ]λο{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} but see D]. {2} so Knigge who says on p. 128: from εναυλος, `Ausdruck des Erstaunens oder der Überraschung'. [I do not understand.] The inscription is above the two right-hand satyrs, slightly bearing upward. It could refer to the fourth satyr and be a name, or a remark of some kind or even nonsense. It should not refer to the woman. Consider εναθλος or εναλλος(?). Possibly a satyr name: Ενα[λ]λο[ς], `jumper, dancer,' from εναλλομαι(?).
  • CAVI Comments: Not in Kossatz-Deissmann (1991); the name not in Pape or LGPN ii. εναυλος is an adj. related to flutes or an abode. - Knigge identified the extant Aison with the young Meidias Painter but Burn does not agree. Cf. Burn 12 n. 59: Cramers and Lezzi-Hafter consider Aison the teacher of the Meidias Painter. Burn is uncertain about the attribution of Ceramicus 4290: she is inclined to Aison but keeps it provisionally under Meidias Painter; she thinks the vase influenced by theater.
