  • AVI Record Number: 4218
  • CAVI Collection: Limenas, Museum.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF skyphos. From Thasos. Nikosthenes Painter. Last quarter sixth. 520-510 (Poursat).
  • CAVI Subject: At left, middle part of a triple or quadruple herm; portions of armed dancers; upper portion of a young flautist.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: At the herm's highest preserved portion, remains of BG dots, perhaps of two horizontal lines, which P. considers an indication of a simulated inscription, perhaps rightly. Under the foot, around triple circles, well spaced and ornamental, in a circle, facing out: [N]ικοσθ[ενε]ς επο[ιεσεν].
  • CAVI Comments: For the position of the signature, Beazley compares the Acropolis frs. ABV (1956), 233-34 and Delt. 16,3. See also AttScr (1990), 49 n. 47. All Corinthian type skyphoi in this period are works of Nikosthenes; the other examples: ABV 231/1-3 and 234.
