  • CAVI Collection: Copenhagen, NM inv. 13,365.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF calyx krater. Kleophrades Painter. Early fifth. 500-490. Late sixth (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: A: symposium (parts of three reclining banqueters and of a flute girl are preserved). B: komos: Anacreon and companions (parts of four komasts).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: coming from the (lost) mouth of a singing banqueter: ---π]ενιες vacat, retr.{1}. On the cup held out by a lost banqueter: Αιρε[--]{2}. To right of the kylix: ---]Β̣ΕΛΕ, retr., complete at end{3}. B: name of one reveler: ---]ς. On the arm of the lyre, in red: Ανακρε[ον]. From the mouth of a bearded reveler with parasol, the leader of the komos: ΙΟΟΟ, the first O squashed{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} cf. Theognis 1129ff.: Εμπιομαι πενιης θυμοφθορου ου μελεδαινων ... αλλ' ηβην ερατην ολοφυρομαι ... ; see AJA, p. 153. {2} Αιρεσιος or Αιρησιππος? [χ]αιρε or [χ]αιρετε, Buhl. {3} the beta read by Buhl. This should be the name of the flute girl. --]BEVE, Beazley, which is upside down. Cf. AJA, 69, 153, n. 9. {4} this represents sounds of singing, not letters.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex L. Curtius collection. - Beazley says: the earliest phase of the Kleophrades Painter, before the end of the sixth century. The singing and dancing reveler: IIOO = ee-ee o-o or the like. The Α[--] on the floating fr.: again Anacreon or not? - Beazley has a list of symposiasts and komasts in `women's clothes,' Brandenburg (ref. in Add.[2]) has a longer one, Boardman (ibid.) in Boardman (1986) a still more complete one: these figures need not have any connection with Anacreon; the inscription on the lyre refers more to it than to the figure holding it [sic].
