  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Agora P 21,860.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fragmentary RF oinochoe. From Athens, Agora N 7:3. Unattributed{1}. Second quarter fifth. 460-450. Mid-fifth (Moore).
  • CAVI Subject: Anodos: goddess (Aphrodite?), probably rising from the ground, between two goat-men{2}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the horns of the right goat-man (satyr or Pan): Σκ[ι]ρτων.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} neighborhood of Chicago Painter (Boulter). {2} very fragmentary. The figure at right is basically lost. In the center, part of Aphrodite's dress. At left, a satyr or Pan standing on a white ground line.
  • CAVI Comments: Boulter wrongly prefers σκιρτων as a descriptive adjective (the left-hand goat-man is jumping high; of the right-hand one only the horns are preserved). Four-stroke sigma. Moore strangely refers to Skirtos (sic) and cites: N. Stambolides, ΣΚ[Ι]ΡΤΟΣ (Παρατηρησεις στην εικονογραφηση του Σικελικου κρατηρα 9341), AAA 15 (1982) 143-151.
