  • CAVI Collection: London B 210.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF neck amphora. From Vulci. Exekias. Third quarter sixth. Ca. 540.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Achilles slaying Penthesilea. B: Dionysus and Oinopion.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: at upper left of scene, facing in: Εχσεκιας εποιεσε, retr. To right of Achilles' face: Αχιλ[λ]ευς. To right of Panthesilea's middle: Πενθεσιλεα. At upper right of scene, facing in: Ονετοριδες καλος. B: from below Dionysus' elbow: Διονυσος, retr. Οινοπιον. Behind Oinopion's legs: Εχσεκιας εποιεσε, retr.
  • CAVI Comments: = 1836.2-24.127. Shapiro follows Carpenter (1986), 49-50, who thinks Oinopion is a kind of personification attached to a stock cup bearer who need not be related to Dionysus.
