  • CAVI Collection: Madrid 11,097.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF neck amphora. Epimedes Painter (Polygnotan). Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: in the center, Eos to right, pursuing the fleeing Cephalus who has petasos, a club and two spears; at left young Sisyphus flees to left while looking back, also with petasos and two spears. B: bearded man between two women.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above Sisyphus' head, horizontal: Σισυφος. Above and to right of her head, horizontal: NϝΟς(1) For (h)(ε)ος. Not vis. in ph., but given in L.'s text: Κε[φ]α[λ]ο[ς]{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so the text of Leroux, with sigma 1. Omicron printed as two half circles. L. transcribes: `νεος (pour Ηως(?))'. AA prints: Nϝεος. {2} Κε[φα]λοπς(?). So my earlier reading. Matheson gives: Σισυφος. NΕΥΣ. [sic]. Κε[φαλ]ος. [sic].
  • CAVI Comments: = 171. Based mainly on Leroux. Matheson on p. 211 says that Sisyphos is here the name of a companion of Cephalus; he is Kallimachos on Cab. Méd. 423, Group of Polygnotos. But I wonder if these inscriptions are genuine. Attic alphabet with Ionic lambda(?).
