  • CAVI Collection: Trachones (Attica), Geroulanos.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF amphora. From Trachones. Dinos Painter. Last quarter fifth. 420-410.
  • CAVI Subject: A: fragmentary: Persephone with a scepter; upper portion of a white-haired Hades (Plouton); upper portion of Demeter with a torch and scepter. B: sale(?) of sacred oil: a young servant holding an amphora; an olive tree; a bearded servant pouring from an amphora into a small amphora standing on the ground; Athena.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Φερρεφαττα. Πλουτων. B: Αλκιμος (the seller). Trace of inscription. Αθηναα.
  • CAVI Comments: B: Finck suggests delivery of sacred oil for the Panathenaea. Scheibler notes that the amphora into which the oil is poured is small and suggests it functions as a measure. Geroulanos suggests a yearly gift by the farmers for Athena; Scheibler suggests delivery of 1/10 from the sacred olive trees. (It is clearly oil, because of the olive tree and Athena at right.) Ionic alphabet. - According to an e-mail from Olga Palagia to Aegeanet, December 1, 1998, the RF vases from Trachones are now on display in the Piraeus Museum, which has reopened.
