  • AVI Record Number: 116
  • CAVI Collection: Altenburg 286.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF skyphos. Group of Naples 3067. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 460 (Bielefeld).
  • CAVI Subject: Athletes: A, B, each: nude youth with strigil before a pillar. That on A faces right, while that on B turns back as if gesticulating to the youth on A.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A, B, each: κακος{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the inscription on B shows in pl. 76,4: located between his left thigh and the pillar, downward and facing the youth. The letters are very small but the third letter is definitely not a lambda; it looks like an angular disjointed kappa. But I am not sure that the iunscription κακος is found elsewhere. Could the inscription be retouched or even false? The position is very unusual. The opposite of καλος is καταπυγων.
  • CAVI Comments: B. says κακος occcurs on both sides and he refers to AEM 18 (1895) 13/1 and Klein (1898), 169 on fig. 46.
