  • CAVI Collection: Geneva, Musée d'Art et d'Histoire MF 236.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. Unattributed{1}. Third quarter sixth. 540-530 (CVA).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Dionysus reclining, with a satyr playing the kithara, and maenads. B: Dionysus riding a donkey, with two satyrs.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Under the foot, Gr.: ΑΘ(Τ)Ι.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Haspels thinks close to, or by, the Phanyllis Painter, but Bothmer denies this.
  • CAVI Comments: Not Attic, I think. Alpha with curved right hasta. Theta near the cartwheel shape, with a straight line at the bottom of the circle. Tau has a diagonal above its horizontal, making it look like a sideways upsilon open to the left. Kahil compares the Grr. Hackl (1909), nos. 289, 296, 298 (XXXIII, pl. 1). Cf. Johnston (1979), 115/1D ii, 10-23, which does not include the Geneva vase; for an attempt at interpretation, see ibid. 204.
