  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. from base and lower body BG skyphos. From Athens. Unattributed. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Rays above the foot.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, circular Gr.: Σικελα καταπυγ[αινα] v.
  • CAVI Comments: The letters are hard to classify, since they have been in part overwritten and erased. According to Vanderpool the writer first wrote καταγυ, then corrected to καταπυγ; according to V.&S. and Lang he first wrote κατπυ (this version may be right). Finally an attempt was made to erase the inscription; Vanderpool says this happened in a number of καταπυγων inscriptions. For the form καταπυγαινα, see Hesp. 22 (1953) 216-17. Lang and V.&S. print Σικελα, as does LGPN ii, but Pape has Σικελη, `the Sicilian woman.' The Doric form shows that she really was a foreigner.
