  • CAVI Collection: London E 379.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. From Vulci. Lykaon Painter (Polygnotan). Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Warrior leaving Home: Nike pouring; a bearded warrior with a phiale; at right, a bearded man. B: king between two women with armor.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: beside Nike: Nικε{1}. The warrior: Λυκαον{2}. Above the righthand warrior: Αντανδρος. At left, above Nike: Ε(υ)αιον καλος{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Smith prints an F-shaped epsilon. {2} taken from Matheson. {3} Smith prints the upsilon as an Attic lambda. See Beazley's note in ARV[2] 1579; he says that the upsilon is written as an Attic lambda [in all 9 examples?] and Elaion, read by Orsi in Syracuse 21,146, is a possible name [which however is not found in PA, Pape or LGPN ii].
  • CAVI Comments: "Now cleaned," Beazley, ARV[2]. This is the name piece of the Lykaon Pinter. Matheson says on p. 272 that Lykaon is a hero of the Trojan War. LGPN ii does not list Lykaon as a historical name. Antandros is not found as a mythical name in Pape; the vase is listed as a probable historical name in LGPN ii. Mixed alphabet.
