  • CAVI Collection: Plovdiv, Departmental Archaeological Museum inv. 298.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. From Duvanlij. Kadmos Painter. 430-420.
  • CAVI Subject: Upper zone: theoxenia: lectisternium for the Dioscuri, with other figures. Lower zone: Departure of Polyneices?{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Upper zone: the inscriptions are unclear in van Hoorn's dr., perhaps in part nonsense with imitation letters: κο[υ]ρ[ο]ς(?) by the left Dioscurus. κομς(?) by the lyre player. κομος(?) by the woman at right. κο[υ]ρ[ο]ς(?) by the right Dioscurus.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Bothmer and Milne apud ARV[2] 1686; on p. 1187, Beazley says: `arrival of youths.'
  • CAVI Comments: Very uncertain readings. This may be inv. 1527; it is so listed by M. Reho, Archeologiya (Bulgarian) 31 (1989) no. 1, in his article on Attic vases in Thracian funerary contexts, ibid., 11-19, figs. 1-13; this vase: figs. 5-7; also by Lezzi-Hafter. Lezzi-Hafter: the Theoxenia for the Dioscouri could be linked to Thracian religious beliefs.
