  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre G 491.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. From Italy. Polygnotos (Beazley); Manner of Peleus Painter (Matheson). Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Eos pursuing Cephalus; a companion fleeing. B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Εως. Κεφαλος{1}. Under the foot, Grr.: Π (Attic pi), ΛΙ, and ΤΡ{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Matheson in the cat. {2} so Johnston (1979); CVA has ΡΙΠ (Attic pi) and ΛΙ. Johnston says this reading is defective; he does not list the vase as having an iota after ΤΡ, but I wonder if it doesn't. For interpretations see Johnston (1979), pp. 197 (but does the vase have ΠΟΙ(?)), 205 and 231. Pi is a common Polygnotan mark (for π[οικιλοι](?)). The facs. in Johnston (1979), gives: Τ ΡΙΠ ΛΙ, with normal pi. [I think the space after the tau is irrelevant. Is this τρι plus π(?). For other vases with τρι see Johnston (1979), 102/16B 27-29; Johnston does not explain τρι. I have not entered the other vases with this mark.]
  • CAVI Comments: "Not good, but seems to be by the painter himself" (Beazley).
