  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Stavros S. Niarchos Collection A 005.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF stamnos. From Chiusi. Unattributed. Second quarter sixth. 560-550 (Hess).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Theseus and the Minotaur. B: five women to right.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to left of Theseus' back: Θεσευς. To right of Minotaur's back: Ταυρο[ς] Μινοιος(?){1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} my suggestion. The text has: Ταυρομινιον, which does not fit the traces at the end of the word. Taurominium is Taormina in Sicily! - M. says: traces of Θεσευς; Ταυρομινιον clearly legible [but I cannot read it in the photo.]
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Hirsch. Bought in 1957 [at the first Hirsch sale.] The surface is in poor condition. - Said to be the earliest stamnos.
  • CAVI Number: 1893
