  • CAVI Collection: New York 40.11.2.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG pyxis with lid. From Greece. Painter of London D 14. Third quarter fifth. 435-430 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Lid (mostly gone): lower parts of six Muses(?). Body: six Nereids (women's quarters).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Lid: in front of a seated figure: ...ε...{1}. To right of a standing figure: [Μελ̣]π̣ο̣με̣ν[ε](?). Body: beside a Nereid with a folded garment: Β[εροι]ε̣. Above the head of woman seated on a stool: Γ(α)λεδε, miswritten for Γαλεν̣ε{2}. Above the head of a Nereid with a glass alabastron and a box: Κυ̣μοδο̣[κ]ε. To left of the middle of the Nereid with a diadem: Ακτε[ι]ε. Above the woman holding a laurel wreath: Γλαυκε{3}. Above the head of a seated woman: Ψαμα̣θε.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} part of a name; could also be ...ε or Ε... . {2} The first is my reading from the photo in AJA; the second is from Richter's text. The alpha resembles an eta; the delta is dotted (perhaps the dot is accidental and we have an incomplete nu). {3} Γ̣λα̣υκε, Richter (1940), but the letters are all there.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscriptions done after AJA. Mixed alphabet.
  • CAVI Number: 5658
