  • AVI Web:
  • AVI Record Number: 3608
  • CAVI Collection: Florence 81,948.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. From Populonia. Meidias Painter. Last quarter fifth. 410-400.
  • CAVI Subject: Adonis and Aphrodite: Chrysothemis seated; Eros; below: Eutychia with a mirror; Eudaimonia seated; higher up: Eurynoe, with a sparrow, seated; Eros playing the iynx; Adonis and Aphrodite (seated); below: Eros pursuing a hare; girl with cymbals; a small Eros faces her.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: 1. Readings after AttScr (Milani with some corrections from CVA): Χ̣ρυσοθεμις. Ευρυνοη. Ιμερος. Αφροδιτη. Υγιεια. Παιδια. Παυθ(?)α[.....]. Ευτυ[χια]. Ε[υ]δα[ιμονια]. Αδωνιος. Ιμερος(?). One other. 2. Readings from CVA: above the head: Χρυσοθεμις. Above Eutychia, the dr. shows: Ευτυ(^wing) vac. Not given in the text. To left of Eudaimonia's forehead: Ευδα(^forehead). No more in the text, dr., and photo. There is very little space for the rest of the name. Above Eurynoe: Ευρυνοη. Between the wings of the Eros with the iynx: Ιμερος. Above Adonis' head: Αδωνιος. Similar for Aphrodite: Αφροδιτη. To left of the left shoulder of a girl with cymbals (?): [--]ννυιιι. (so the dr., after Milani). CVA suggests Pannychia, saying that any traces are now completely gone. [I think: [Πα]ννυ[χις], as the name of the girl with cymbals.] 3. Shapiro: Eutychia. Eudaimonia. Himeros. Hygieia. Paidia. Adonis. Aphrodite. Pandaisia. Pannychis. Eurynoe omitted? 4. Copies of the dr. in Nicole (Shapiro, fig. 16; Burn, fig. 24,a): Χρυσοθεμις. Ευτυ[χια]. Ευδα[ιμονια]. Ευρυνοη. Ιμερος. Ιμερος. Αφροδιτη. Αδωνιος{1}. Υγιεια. Παιδια. Πονος{2}. The companion with the tambourin has a short name of three letters which I cannot read; Burn says the name is Pannychis; see above. [Under the foot, Grr.:] a Gr. line across the foot. (υ)δ ΙΙ Μ ΙΙΙΙΙ{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Threatte (1996), 108 considers this gen. and poetic. [The gen. form in -ιος is cited by LSJ from Pherecrates Comicus, but the regular form is in -ιδος. A nom. Αδωνιος is cited by LSJ from Plutarch, Moralia 2.756c. The other names are apparently not in the gen.] {2} unclear: is this Panda[isia]? {3} according to the facs., the upsilon is in ligature with a rho 2: is this a writing error for υδρ[](?).
  • CAVI Comments: These readings are not complete and do not agree with my original readings from the dr. in Milani that I used in AttScr together with some corrections from CVA, pp. 55-56. Ionic alphabet. Johnston (1979), p. 64, chapter 10 n. 4: the Gr. seems to refer to the companion vase found with the present one in a grave of Populonia; i.e., it mentions two hydriai.
