  • CAVI Collection: Berlin inv. 3244.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup-skyphos. From Sorrento. Unattributed{1}. 430-420.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Nereus seated between two daughters: a Nereid at left, standing, lifts her cloaked left hand; a Nereid at right, standing, holds out a dolphin. B: three daughters: one seated receives a hare from another, who is followed by a third with a wreath.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Inscriptions horizontal, in white: A: to right of left Nereid's raised hand: Ευλιμενη. To right of Nereus' face and the hand holding his scepter: Nερ[ε]υς. Below right handle ornament, i.e. to right of second Nereid's feet: hιλιθυα{3}. B: above left (seated) Nereid's head: Ψαμαθε{4}. To right of head of left-facing Nereid offering hare: Πλωτω. Under right handle ornament, i.e. to right of feet of left-facing Nereid with wreath: Θετις. This vase not signed.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} ARV[2]: "Of somewhat similar style [as Boston 99.539], but hardly by the same hand, the vase [Berlin 3244] found with it". Boston 99.539 has the signature of Xenotimos as potter and is listed as by the Xenotimos Painter as his single work. Bea. Arch. says: compared to Xenotimos Painter by Beazley. {2} CVA, fig. 5, a dr. from Antike Denkmäler, omits the signature of Xenotimos, which Antike Denkmäler has [[fragmentarily, above Νερυς]]. {3} for the first iota see Threatte (1980), 342. {4} see Threatte (1980), 121.
  • CAVI Comments: Berlin West. - Furtw., in AA, points out that the traces of a potter's signature of Xenotimos (which appears on Boston 99.539, see below), shown above the head of Nereus in Antike Denkmäler, are imaginary. Mixed alphabet.
