  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. From Nola. Painter of London E 183{1}. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Sending out Triptolemos: Pluto; woman with torches; Persephone; T. in winged chair; Demeter filling his phiale; Hekate with torches; woman with a basket roushing in.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Inscriptions above heads: Τριπτολεμος. Δημητηρ. Εκατη. Under the foot, Gr.: hυ{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} [bears] a certain resemblance to the earlier work of the Kadmos Painter (Beazley). {2} i.e., hυ[δρια], in Johnston's reading; CVA and Hackl (1909) read it upside down: ΛΗ, but that must be wrong.
  • CAVI Comments: C. Smith says: "The use of the lunate sigma [in Τριπτολεμος] is undoubted." But see AttScr (1990), 160.
