  • CAVI Collection: Ferrara, Museo Nazionale di Spina 2865.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF volute krater. From Spina. Peleus Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Funeral Games for Pelias: A: before the contests: Atalanta and Peleus with other figures (see inscriptions). B: after the contests: a bearded victor (Heracles?); Akastos seated as judge; Polydeukes victor; Pheres seated (fellow judge); Idas.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: [--]χος. Κλεομολπος. Ιππομενης{1}. Αμυκος{2}. B: Πολυδευ[κης]{3}. [Ιδ]ας{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Peleus misnamed. {2} boxer; misnamed. {3} being crowned. {4} standing; the complement [Ιδ]ας is Beazley's; a former suggestion was [Πελι]ας.
  • CAVI Comments: = T 404. - On A the artist has conflated the fight at the games with the fight between Polydeukes and Amykos (Beazley). For inscriptions and subject see AJA 64. - Matheson 229f. also discusses the subject which has been disputed: reversing A and B, she suggests [Πηλι]ας rather than [Ιδ]ας for the standing figure (if the inscription refers to him): the shade of the dead man attending. For B, Matheson follows Korshak who interprets the scene as the foot race between Hippomenes and Atalanta; Hippomenes is tying his sandal rather than wrestling. But there are difficulties (Amykos does not fit and Kleomolpos is an unknown name); hence the interpretation is uncertain.
