  • CAVI Collection: Palermo, Museo Nazionale NI 1886.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. From Selinus, Sanctuary of Demeter Mallophoros{1}. Douris. First quarter fifth. Early middle (Beazley){2}.
  • CAVI Subject: Sacrifice of Iphigeneia: the lower part of a warrior; Iphigeneia lead by another warrior (both warriors hold swords); altar; palm tree.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of Iphigeneia's head: Ιφιγενεια. To right of the right warrior's head: [Τ]ευκρος̣{3}. Above the altar: Αρ[--](.)[--]{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} a possible cult connection. {2} Transitional I (Rich), B.-O. {3} The photo in `Ages' shows that only the last letter is in any doubt; the text has Τευκρο[ς]. The first letter is hidden under a large smudge. {4} Probably complete at left. (.) may not be a letter; it looked like the bottom of an upsilon. Kurtz (1989) suggests: Αρ[τεμις]. B.-O. suggests Αρ[τεμιδος], i.e. the altar of Artemis, which is better. I wonder if a final sigma shows on the fr. that comes after Αρ[--], which would support B.-O.'s reading. For the readings see also B.-O. 18.
  • CAVI Comments: The treatment of the subject recalls the iconography of marriage scenes.
