  • AVI Record Number: 4876
  • CAVI Collection: Madison, University of Wisconsin, Elvehjem Museum 1979.122.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF/WG mastoid skyphos. Related to Sappho Painter and Diosphos Painter; Pistias Class M (Kurtz). Last quarter sixth. Ca. 515 (Moon).
  • CAVI Subject: A: an old man, in himation and with a sakkos in his hair, seated and playing the lyre (kithara) while singing. B: similar.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: imitation letters: A: from the mouth, in a large downward curve: (h)(σ)ο(θ)(ι)π(.)ποχσι. B: a similar inscription{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Lissarrague gives a longer inscription than the above, hence it may be of B: hh(δ)(h)ιπισοχσ(.)χσι.
  • CAVI Comments: The letters are exceedingly sloppy and often only approximate. Moon rightly thinks the inscription imitates a song, whence he calls the figure a poet. Moon's picture of A is better than his picture of B.
  • CAVI Number: 4876
  • AVI Bibliography: Moon (1979), 123/70. — Lissarrague (1990a), 128, fig. 98 (sketch of A or B, after Moon, with inscription).
