  • CAVI Collection: London E 456.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF stamnos. From Cerveteri. Group of Polygnotos; near Polygnotos (Beazley). Third quarter fifth. Ca. 440.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Diomedes sacrificing (replica of E 455). B: three youths (as E 455).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the head: Διομεδες. To left of Nike's head: Nικε.
  • CAVI Comments: Found with London E 455. A distinctly different hand from E 455. The vase is now cleaned and attributed to Polygnotos himself by Matheson. Webster (1972), 51 and n. 1 identifies Diomedes with the historical PA 4070 [but LGPN ii does not list the vases as referring to a historical Diomedes]. Diomedes also appears on Gotha 51 and a RF fr. in Palermno by the Achilles Painter, ARV[2] 992/64. My view is that like in the case of Deinomache (see the RF neck amphora by Aison in Chantilly, ARV[2] 1176/25) the name is mythical but chosen because there is also a historical personage.
