  • CAVI Collection: London B 177.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF neck amphora. Unattributed{1}. Third quarter sixth (?).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Laios, Keleos, Kerberos, Aigolios, stung by bees. B: satyrs and maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Laios. Keleos. Kerberos. Aigolios.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Bea. Arch. gives two anonymous attributions: manner of the Painter of Berlin 1686 and manner of the Princeton Painter.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscriptions are surely false. Beazley in Para. does not mention them; he merely says that the amphora `Basel, ex Züst' [now Basel, Ant. Mus. Z-364, see Add.[2] 80], by the Swing Painter, has the same subject as London B 177, the subject being: B: men attacked by bees. Bea. Arch. seems to consider the inscriptions genuine.
