  • CAVI Collection: Mainz, University 116.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pyxis with lid. Oppenheimer Group (Beazley). Third quarter fifth. Ca. 430 (Böhr).
  • CAVI Subject: Body: in the center, a woman with a torch (goddess: see below), seated between two columns; at left, two women running while holding hands, the front one also holding a wreath; at right, two women bringing gifts (a skyphos and a necklace repectively); at the farther right, a woman with a taenia and a seated woman holding out a plemochoe (exaleiptron).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Body: to upper left of the left running woman: κ(α)λη. To left of the right running woman's head: κ(α)λ(η). To left of the torch bearer's head: κ(α)λ^ν{1}. To right of her head: κ(α)λ(η). To left of the chin of the woman with the skyphos: κ(α)λν. To left of the back of the woman with a taenia, at chest-height: κ(α)^λν{1}. To upper left of the seated woman with the plemochoe: κ(α)(λ)(η).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} a column intervenes. The last letter is clearly a nu.
  • CAVI Comments: Very sloppy writing. Ionic alphabet. Eta miswritten, sometimes as a reversed nu. Seven women and seven kale's, but some of the latter are oddly placed. Hampe and Simon interpreted the woman with the torch as Hestia supporting newly-weds; so also Sarian. Bérard and Schwenck interpret the scene as in a sanctuary of Artemis, with the bride (the only figure with unbound hair) bringing her necklace as a gift. Böhr prefers the identification as Hestia. By the same hand: the pyxis San Simeon, Hearst, ARV[2] 1224/1 (ph. in Beazley Archive).
