  • CAVI Collection: St. Petersburg 769.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF calyx krater. From Cerveteri. Near Peleus Painter and Hector Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Phorbas; Theseus charging; an Amazon on horseback. B: a king between two women.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of Phorbas' helmet crest: Φορβα[ς]{1}. In the same position: (Θ)εσευς{2}. To right of the Amazon's head: Μελοσα{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} my reading from a photo.; Bothmer has Φορβας. The facs. in KAV shows a very odd phi (a triangle with a projecting vertical through it). {2} according to KAV's facs., the theta has the dot at 4 o'clock just outside the circle. {3} Matheson prints ΜΕΛΥΣΑ, which must be a misprint. For the name see New York 44.11.1 (a woman's name) and Vatican, Astarita 701 (maenad).
  • CAVI Comments: = St. 1680. Tailed rho.
  • CAVI Number: 7382
