  • CAVI Collection: Boston 97.374.
  • CAVI Lemma: Lekythos in Six' technique. From Greece. Unattributed. Beldam workshop (Haspels). False (?). Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Oedipus and a wingless sphinx.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of his head: Οιδιπους.
  • CAVI Comments: Very small and casual letters. I thought both the scene and specially the inscription false. Omicron upsilon for o is suspicious. Goldman considered the scene and inscriptions genuine; the museum card says that Tarbell and Beazley doubted the vase. Goldman notes that wingless sphinxes do not occur on vases, but are found on other monuments.
