  • CAVI Collection: Munich 1615A.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF neck amphora. From Vulci. Unattributed; Dot-Band Class. Late sixth or early fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Hermes flying with the infant Heracles. B: the centaur Chiron with game and a dog, returning from the hunt and greeting [Hermes].
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to Hermes' left, facing him: hερμες, retr. Around the baby Heracles' head, in much smaller letters, curving around the head: hερακλες. Under Hermes' feet: χαιρε συ. On Hermes' right, not facing him: καλος hο παις{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} there is a very slight gap after καλος.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscriptions recall red-figure; those on A can be interpreted as part of a story: Hermes brings the child Heracles to Chiron who, returning from the hunt, greets him. Hermes says: χαιρε συ. Heracles is the pais kalos. This despite the position of some of the inscriptions and the fact that Chiron does not face left.
