  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 824.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Ruvo. Unattributed. Second half fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a wreath of ivy leaves and berries; a satyr before a seated maenad who holds a thyrsus. A: a maenad; a youthful Dionysus (the head missing) with a thyrsus, seated; a maenad looking back. B: Eros flying, with a fillet; Ariadne with a fillet; another Eros, touching Ariadne's arm.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: The Inscriptions are repainted{1}. Int.: καλος{2}. καλαι{2}. A: between the left maenad's head and the thyrsus: καλο[ς]. Between Dionysus and the right maenad's head: Διον[υ]σος{3}. B: Αριαδνα[ι] καλαι{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} correctly, according to de Witte as reported by Oppermann (so de Ridder). {2} de Ridder, text. {3} so de Ridder's text; the facs. on p. 488 shows [Δ]ιονισος with three-stroke sigma twice, while the dr. of fig. 118 has four-stroke twice. {4} so de Ridder's text, surely misread; the facs. on p. 488 has: Α(ρ)ια(δ)να and καλαι. Originally reported as ΑΡΙΑΓNΕ; see Threatte (1980), 565.
  • CAVI Comments: Despite de Witte's confidence, I think the inscriptions may well be false (modern) or incorrectly restored. I suspect the whole vase is heavily restored.
