  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Agora P 5449.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. from base of BG skyphos. From Athens. Unattributed. Third quarter fifth{1}.
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, in two lines, Gr.:(2) [κα]τ̣α̣πυγ̣[ον] and Αριστομε[νες].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Lang; around the middle, V.&S. {2} the lines somewhat separated, with the first horizontal, the second curved and nearer the rim.
  • CAVI Comments: Numerous scratches over the word καταπυγων suggested to V.&S. that an attempt was made to erase the word. I am not convinced that the words are one inscription. It could be that we have a kalos-inscription for Aristomenes, while someone added the pejorative, which was then scratched out. Aristomenes occurs as kalos on a RF lekythos, Syracuse 21130, ARV[2] 535/1 and 1167, by the Aristomenes Painter who recalls the Alkimachos Painter; probably late in the second quarter of the fifth cent., hence not much, if any, earlier than the Gr. (which Beazley does not mention). - Mixed alphabet?
