  • CAVI Collection: New York Market (Sotheby).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF stamnos. Siren Painter (Bothmer){1}. Second quarter fifth. Ca. 480 (Cody). First quarter fifth (Causey-Frel).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Odysseus' and Idomeneus' escape from the Cyclops' cave: two rams marching to right, each with a hero clinging to its belly; Cyclops (with blind eye) to left, lifting the door slab for the rams. B: bathing: a youth with the himation around his waist fondling a naked woman at a standed laver; at right another woman moving away.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Κυκλοπς{3}. Οδυσευς{4}. Ιδαμενευς{5}. Under foot, Grr.: type 11B in Johnston (1979), and alpha S 1 (see chart in AttScr) plus a sign resembling >.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} I do not know the spelling. `Wealth' credits Greifenhagen [[for the attribution]]. {2} the frs. Greifenhagen 215 speaks of as lost were modern restorations. {3} so `Wealth'. {4} given with one sigma in `Wealth'. {5} for Ιδομενευς. Here a companion of Odysseus, not otherwise known.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Malibu (loan). Ex Dallas, TX, Nelson Bunker Hunt Collection H 12. The inscriptions after the text in `Wealth', where they are given in the common Greek alphabet. Does the erotic scene on B indicate that the bathing women are hetaerae?
