  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Bea. Arch.: Archippe Painter. Related to Tyrrhenian.
  • CAVI Comments: Bothmer lists as: Basel, Antikenmuseum (anonymous loan). - Phoibe and Helen, as daughter of Leda, are sisters of the Dioscouri. For Phoibe see Eur., IA 50, and Ovid, Heroides 8.77-78. Bothmer believes that five of the six vases which he attributes to the Archippe Group are by one hand, the Archippe Painter. Hermary gives a list of vases figuring the Dioscouri. Attic alphabet. Beta with round upper loop and incomplete lower (resembling a 9 turned to right).
