  • AVI Record Number: 6772
  • CAVI Collection: Paris Market (Feuardent).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. Group of Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Dionysus, Hephaestus, and, on a platform, a satyr (the chorus master from a satyr play). B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: startung from Dionysus' mouth and stretching to the right of Hephaestus: καλος Ηφαρστος, for Ηφαιστος{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Tillyard, definitely not a misprint, but miswritten.
  • CAVI Comments: I give the inscription as one, but it is possible that καλος goes with Dionysus and Hephaestus is simply named; the latter is what Tillyard thought, declaring a kalos-name for Hephaestus impossible. This may be a scene from a satyr play (Dionysus persuading Hephaestus to return to Olympus?), or it may at least have a connection with the satyr play.
