  • CAVI Collection: Boston 03.821.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF neck amphora. From Suessula. Kadmos Painter. Ca. 400 (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Uncertain subject: women (heroines?) with Erotes. B: a youth (Theseus?) pursuing a woman.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: in white above the heads: Ευρυνοη. Ποθος. Ιπποδαμη. Ερως. Ιασω. Αστερια. Under the foot, Graffiti: Σπαθαι : ΙΙ and opposite Ι-Ι-. Separately, Θ.
  • CAVI Comments: Mixed alphabet (Ionic except for three-stroke sigma). Hippodameia was the bride of Pelops: the Kadmos Painter had Peloponnesian sympathies; possibly Eurynoe is thought of as a bride (Beazley). For the graffiti, see Beazley in AJA, with numerous parallels by the Pothos Painter and on Polygnotan vases, etc. The single theta is found also on Madrid 11,075, by the Pothos Painter. Spathe is a vase shape; see Johnston (1979), 230: this vase proves that σπαθη is a vase name; he thinks, a long narrow shape and hence suitable for neck amphorae (on which the Gr. appears), which are also called μακρα.
