  • AVI Record Number: 4100
  • CAVI Collection: King's Point, NY, Schimmel.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF psykter. Oltos. Last quarter sixth. 510-500.
  • CAVI Subject: Six armed men (`heroes', Beazley) riding on dophins.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: By each rider, from the mouth: επι δελφινος, retr.
  • CAVI Comments: Listed in Add.[2] as: New York L. 1979.17.1 (on loan from Schimmel). - I interpret the inscriptions as ornamental additions to the pictures; Sifakis thinks they are words sung by a dolphin chorus. Beazley in ARV[2] points to parallels which add a flute player. It is clearly a chorus, but it does not follow that the words are a song. - Drougou agrees with Sifakis. - Lissarrague reads epidelphinos `mounted on a dolphin'; is this a printing error or does he think it is an adj.? L. notes the shield devices, three of which are vase shapes. When the psykter is set in a krater the dolphins swim in the wine-dark sea. He has more on dolphins and symposium scenes.
