  • AVI Record Number: 3795
  • CAVI Collection: Geneva, Private.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekythos. Providence Painter. Second quarter fifth. Ca. 470 (Cahn).
  • CAVI Subject: Nike flying with a sash.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: In upper right: hιππον and πα[--]{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Cahn says the inscription is hard to read; he prints: hιππον/πα... I conjecture that the slash in Auktion means that the words are in two lines; hence perhaps: hιππον [καλος] | [hο] πα[ις καλος], or some shorter version of this combination.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Basel Market (M.M.). Cahn compares the lekythos New York 07.286.67 with Nike carrying a hydria and hιππον καλος, also by the Providence Painter; and Gela, ARV[2] 641/91.
