  • CAVI Collection: New York 75.2.11.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF chous (oinochoe). From Athens. Meidias Painter; Class of Athens 15308 (Green). Late fifth. 420-410 (Richter).
  • CAVI Subject: Preparation for the Anthesteria (Choes festival): women perfuming clothes, with a little boy watching(2); at right, the chair of the basilinna with clothes on it (so Richter–Hall).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Below the top margin in widely spaced letters: Γανυμη̣δης and καλος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} = GR 1243. {2} Referred to the Choes festival by Deubner and Richter; Beazley speaks only of the perfuming of clothes.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley in ARV[2] 1313 says that the inscription is "not a real kalos-inscription;" on p. 1580 he lists it as "Tag-kalos." Richter thinks it is the nickname of a fair boy, while Deubner apud Richter–Hall (1936), i, 200, n. 10, suggests reference to the banquet of the Choes. Clearly, Beazley is right on p. 1580 in attributing the inscription to the little boy, despite its position. Cf. also AttScr. The two words are written on either side of the swing. L.-H. 202 notes the ritual shoes on the foot stool under the basilinna's chair and the new clothes on it; shoes are also worn by the boy and by one of the women. Mixed alphabet: Ionic letters with three-stroke sigma.
