  • AVI Record Number: 4926
  • CAVI Collection: Malibu 76.AE.48.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF lekythos. Taleides Painter. Amasis, potter (?). Third quarter sixth. 540-530 (Bothmer).
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: boxers. Body: a seated man greeted by a woman and five boys.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Under the foot, circular, facing out, Dip.: Αμασις vac.1-2 μεποιεσεν.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Legakis' claim that one sigma is four-stroke is erroneous.
  • CAVI Comments: See the discussion of the signature in AttScr: its general character resembles those on vases by the Amasis Painter, but the writing is coarser and the glaze less brilliant; I express some doubts about the genuineness. J. Frel says that the Amasis signature is in the handwriting of the Taleides Painter. H. Mommsen: the lekythos resembles others by the Taleides Painter and NOT those painted by the Amasis Painter; thewriting resembles the signatures on vases by the Amasis Painter, but is larger and coarser and the glaze is less shiny. "Die Amasis-Signatur ist daher äusserst unglaubwürdig, auch wenn sie sich als antik erweisen sollte." Three-stroke sigma{1}.
