  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre G 423.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. Komaris Painter. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: a young Theseus pursuing an unidentified woman; at left a female companion, fleeing. B: three draped youths, two of them with sticks.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: centered above Theseus' head and very close to it: Θεσευς.
  • CAVI Comments: Theseus is the reading accepted by Beazley in JHS and CB; it was originally the reading of Pottier and Heydemann (see CVA). CVA, however read: (π)ε(λ)ϝυς, i.e. (Π)ελευς, changing the subject to the pursuit of Thetis by Peleus. It is no doubt an early amatory exploit of Theseus, of which there are many.
