  • CAVI Collection: Rome, Villa Giulia 50,404.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. Unattributed{1}. First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: two hetaerae at the Haloa fetival: they dance around a phallus supported by stylized testicles as a base. [`dancing' seems better than `erecting a phallus'. It could be that the right hetaera who is nude is erecting it, or holding it upright, while the left one, who is draped, dances around it]. A: komos of four dancing youths. B: komos of four figures, two fighting and two bearded.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: above the scene, near the margin: καλ̣ος; on the middle and lower right, similar: hο παις. Caruso reads: Int.: ο πα[ς] κα[λ]ος. On the phallus, vertically down, in BG: καλε{2}. A: Φρισσταγορας καλος, for Αρισσταγορας. Beazley reads: ΦΡΙΣΣ ΤΑΛΟΡΑΣ ΚΑΛΟΣ. [sic]. A: under the rim: κ[α]λος ο π[α]ις. Caruso: traces of illegible letters.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Mingazzini attributes to Oedipus Ptr., a follower of Douris. {2} very sloppy: The letters unclear; it may perhaps be read retr. kappa = chi 1; alpha = delta S 1; lambda = gamma 2 (lambda 5), unless the inscription is to be read retr., when lambda would be 2; epsilon near 8 (se the chart in AttScr).
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley thinks the writer may have had another kalos in mind and changed after the first letter; he notes that on Louvre C 10,917+ the name is coupled with Phaidrias. - M.'s reading of the inscriptions on the Int. is roughly correct, but for A he gives only κ[α]λος hο π[α]ις and no name. The facss. make no sense.
