  • CAVI Collection: Ferrara, Museo Nazionale di Spina T 128.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Spina. Eretria Painter. Third quarter fifth. 435-430 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Apollo with a lyre, and the muse Kleo. A: departure of two youths, with two women with phiales and a bearded man with a scepter at left. B: departure of two youths, with a woman holding two phiales; youth and a bearded man with a scepter at left.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: above Apollo: Απολλον. Beside the muse: Κλεω. Ext.: the pertinence of the names is unclear, but see below: A: Αντενορ. Χρυσε̣ς{1}. Κλεο̣{2}. B: Ιπ[π][ο]λυτο[ς]{3}. Θεανο. Beazley's readings are less complete: Α[ν]τενορ. Χρυσι.... Ιπ[πο]λυτο[ς] [note my suggestion below.] ...οε{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so L.-H. in the cat.; the sketch on p. 33, fig. 7,b, shows the inscription starting above the head of the youth in the center and stretching out to the right (the woman with the phiale): Χρυσ[ε]ς. {2} L.-H. has an unclear note in the cat. about the position of Antenor and Kleo on A. {3} L.-H. has: Ιπ[ο]λυτο[ς]. Could it be (Beazley's reading): Ιπ[πο]λυτο[ς]? For the spelling with single pi (if that is right) see Ferrara T 12C. {4} the inscriptions are mostly taken from the sketches in L.-H.'s cat.
  • CAVI Comments: = 3035. L.-H.: the Ext. depicts the departure of Trojan heroes before the Trojan War: note Antenor (here the old king); Theano, the woman holding two phiales, is his wife. Their two sons are Hippolytos and Chryses. Is Kleo's name influenced by the name of the muse on the Int.? Note that Apollo was on the Trojan side. Cf. the departure of Achilles on Munich inv. 7638, L.-H., cat., no 43, which is also by the Eretria Painter. - Note that Beazley in ARV[2] does not give a mythological explanation. He refers to Ελενης Απαιτησις 243-44. - Mixed alphabet. Ionic lambda. Three-stroke sigma.
