  • CAVI Collection: Once Paris, Bauville.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekythos. From Attica. Manner of Meidias Painter. Last quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Shapiro after Brückner: Preparations for Marriage: a woman with a chest on her head and a woman with a branch(?), both moving toward an altar; a statue on a column; a seated woman, probably Aphrodite.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the woman with the sprig, one name above the other, starting in the same place but hardly stoich.: Θαλεια. Ευνομια.
  • CAVI Comments: Brückner suggested the ceremony of newly-weds in a sanctuary of Aphrodite Pandemos. Beazley in ARV[2] did not decide between Aphrodite and Hera; Burn thinks the statue is that of Aphrodite. The pairing of Thaleia and Eunomia shows knowledge of Hesiod, Theog. 909 (Shapiro). Collignon misapplied the names (Shapiro 85 n. 179). The women are given names of companions of Aphrodite.
