  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of RF hydria of BF shape. Pioneer Group (Beazley){1}. Last quarter sixth. Ca. 520 (Bothmer). Ca. 520-510 (Neer).
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: chariot race (parts of two chariots); in the center, the bearded charioteer of the first chariot is preserved.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense(?, see below): above the horses of the left-hand chariot: [--]ευχς{2}. Above the right-hand horses and to right of the bearded charioteer: παλενχ[--]{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Neer 26: Beazley nearly gave the fr. to Phintias (letter to Walter Bareiss of 3/20/62: could be late work of his). But in Beazley (1947) (rev. edn. 1989: 26), Beazley says: several elements in the fr. are not without analogy, as a whole the fr. stands alone. Guy notes links with Euthymides. Neer lists other analogies. {2} so the photo in the Bareiss cat.; Beazley is slightly inaccurate.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Bareiss 24. The inscriptions recall to me the Dikaios Painter. Neer considers the two inscriptions one nonsense inscription, but I think they are two inscriptions giving the names of the two charioteers (rather than the nationality of the chariots). They may still be only nonsense imitations of real names [esp. if they recall the Dikaios Painter, as I say in the old CAVI entry]; or they may be real names, the second one perhaps miswritten. On p. 26, Neer says that Bothmer suggests the first part of the inscription, ευχς, may refer obliquely to the potter Euxitheos; N. does not accept this. But Neer compares for the second half of the inscription: Γαλενε on Boston 10.221, ARV[2] 16/14, by Euphronios [this seems odd]. Bothmer thinks the fr. is from a lid rather than a hydria; there are marks of the underside which he declares to be Grr. (they may resemble a mu), while Neer thinks they are not intentional and put into the leatherhard state of the pot; see the dr., p. 25. Neer thinks the reverse is too rough to be the bottom of a lid, hence he lists it as a fr. of a hydria of BF shape. - The forward trace horse has a circular brand, for which Neer gives parallels.
