  • AVI Record Number: 4943
  • CAVI Collection: Malibu 80.AE.31.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. Phintias. Last quarter sixth. 510-500{1}.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: satyr. A: a naked youth holding his erect penis and handing(?) a calyx krater to a fat hetaera on his right. B: a fat hetaera manipulates a youth's erect penis. Under each handle, an eye.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: (Φ)ιντια(.) γ̣ εγρα[φσ]εν. A, B, each: signature of Phintias.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} see Carlsruhe 63.104.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Swiss Private. "The letter after the alpha of the name [on the Int.] is fragmentary and amorphous; the letter after it might be gamma or kappa. The signature [on the Int.] and the other inscriptions are very hard to read," ARV[2]. There are three signatures, as on Carlsruhe 63.104, q.v. Robertson thinks the old hetaera on the Exterior may be a picture of a real one called Syko and so named on Euphronios' krater Munich 8935, where the hetaera is equally old. Frel argued that the youth(s) is (are) Phintias himself, but Weiss points out that the color of the eyes differs on A and B. Keuls also disagrees with Frel and thinks the vase might be a joke on Smikros. Frel also thought A showed a potter (perhaps Phintias himself) offering a pot to a hetaera as a token of love. But Keuls and H.-P. show that the theme is the drinking lust of old women, the krater being thought of as containing wine. There are other inscriptions, it seems, which I have not registered; see Threatte (1996), 641, where [h]εδ̣ομαι is cited.
