  • CAVI Collection: Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum 3714.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF plastic kantharos (head vase: negress's head). From Cerveteri. Unattributed; Class G: The London Class. End of sixth (Eichler).
  • CAVI Subject: Palmettes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: At the bottom of the neck, below the palmettes, horizontal Grr.: A: hο παις ναι. B: καλος κα̣(ρ)τα γε{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} CVA prints the rho as D-shaped; it apears to be extant. Beazley in JHS interprets: hο παις καλος, ναι, καρτα γε. But why not as written: hο παις, ναι, καλος, καρτα γε(?). At any rate,it is a single inscription in two parts.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Oest. Museum 347. The palmettes and Grr. inscriptions are similar to the Vatican head vase, ARV[2] 1533/7, of the same class, q.v. The letters on A are well spaced, i.e., planned, and fill the whole space. The same is no doubt true of B also.
