  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre G 457.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Cerveteri. Eretria Painter. 430-420. Ca. 430 (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a youth (Musaios) holding up writing tablets (with five folds), opened at the top; a seated man (Linos), himation around the waist, with an open book roll; a book chest. Ext.: athletes: A: a trainer and a jumper. B: athletes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: above the youth's head: Μοσαιος. Above the man's head: Λινος. The two-lines of writing on the roll have been variously read (the roll is twisted): 1. Jahn (1856), 95-97: ννεν and ιιιδεινα... 2. Pottier: λνεν (Attic lambda) and ιιι(δ)εοναι (the `delta' = D). 3. Beazley (1948): υνεν and ι:ιοεοναι̣ (see below). 4. HRI: υνε(ν) (the last letter a sigma(?) corrected to a nu or vice versa) and ι:ιοε(φ)ναι (the `phi' is a small circle with verticals at top and bottom; it may well be an omicron, as Beazley posited). A better reading, from the photo in L.-H., is: [--]υνεν | θ̣εωνα[--]. 5. Beazley says that the first three signs of line 2 stand for any letters [cf. AttScr (1990), 174 and n. 5]. He restores: [σοφροσ]ύνεν and θεο̃ν αἰ[ειγεννετάο̅ν]. 6. L.-H. in her cat. appears to make a mistake, reading: υνεν | ιθ̣εωναι. On p. 140 she reports Beazley's text in AJA as: [σωφροσ]ύνεν | θ̣εῶν αἰ[ειγενετάων]. The lines praise `die Besonnenheit der immerwährenden Götter' (L.-H.). A: to right of the trainer's head [above the scene as a whole (according to L.-H.)]: Λυκοφρον. To right of the jumper's head: Εφαρμοστος. καλος. [Connected with any name, or label for a third person?] B: similar: [Α]λκιμα[χ]ος{1}. Ασστειος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the name is mentioned in ARV[2] 1562.
  • CAVI Comments: The Int. is a school scene in mythical guise. Alkimachos: see J.K. Davies (1971), 12-15, 600, IV. Also with kalos on Villa Giulia 27,252. Also in Ferrara T 617, with kalos, L.-H., no. 98, Calliope Painter; this should be a younger member of the same family, although Beazley 1562 does not distinguish the two. Mixed alphabet. Ionic lambda and three-stroke sigma.
