  • CAVI Lemma: RF squat lekythos{1}. Manner of Meidias Painter{2}. End of fifth (Shapiro). Ca. 410 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: The Bath of Helen,(3) with Eunomia(?), Eukleia, Eros (pouring water), Pothos and Aphrodite.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Αφροδιτ[η]. Ερ[ω]ς. [Π]οθος. Eukleia. Eunomia? See also the readings by R. Guy in LIMC iv: Helen. Eukleia (wreath-maker); Aphrodite (scepter-holding); Eros (holding cloth); Pothos (holding chest). See also the readings by R. Guy in LIMC iv. Helen; Eukleia (wreath-maker); Aphrodite (scepter-holding); Eros (holding cloth); Pothos (holding chest).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} tallboy. {2} so Shapiro and Burn. Lezzi-Hafter attributes the vase to a follower of the Shuvalov Painter. {3} Beazley says: "Naked woman bathing, combing her hair; she is waited on by two Erotes; Aphrodite gives the order, and two seated goddesses look on."
  • CAVI Comments: Burn does not seem to comment on Helen on this vase. L.-H. in n. 332 thinks it possible that the lekythos was made by the potter of the Frankfurt acorn lekythos, and she appears to accept the Phintias inscription on that vase. Cf. also p. 96. In the cat. she says: `Vom Töpfer Phintias?' Beazley in ARV[2] 1705 says: "there is also something of the Shuvalov Painter". Other acorn lekythoi perhaps by the same potter: Berlin 2707; Louvre MNB 1320 [L.-H., nos. O 21 and O 22.]
