  • CAVI Collection: Syracuse 21,186.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekythos. From Gela. Achilles Painter. Second quarter fifth. 460-450. 450-445 (Oakley). Early (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: Artemis and a woman.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: between the figures, at shoulder height: Κλενιας | κ(α)λος | Πηδιος{1}. Under foot, Gr.: alpha with a horizontal line at the apex. [Cf. Johnston (1979), 71/A 1, examples 1, 3 and 8.]
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} tabella inscription; the first two lines probably stoich., the third at some distance below and not stoich. For the gen. of Πηδιευς, see Meisterhans(3), p. 141, para. 10 and Threatte (1996), 248, para. 56.02251a (add Πεδιο̃ς, and Σαμιο̃ς, ARV[2] 995/123). Actually the name is Πεδιευς [[with short e]], so perhaps we should read Πhεδιος [[Π{h}(ε)]](?). Or more likely eta is here substituted for short e, see Threatte (1980), 39 and 159; Threatte (1996), 685.
  • CAVI Comments: O. and S. interpret the scene as a bride offering her belt to Artemis. Mixed alphabet. Sigma twice three-stroke and once four-stroke.
