  • AVI Record Number: 1978
  • CAVI Collection: Basel, Antikenmuseum BS 424.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. Very close to Lydos (CVA). Third quarter sixth. Ca. 550 (CVA).
  • CAVI Subject: A: three satyrs and two maenads dancing (the central satyr has a frontal face). B: similar, but no frontal face.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: A: ten strings of letters: E.g.: between the central satyr's legs: νεο^νο^νι^α̣σ{1}. To left of the same satyr: ονεολ... {2}. Above the central satyr's left arm: νεονεονυσ. To right of the central satyr's raised left leg: νεονεονε^πο. B: similar: eight inscriptions.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the alpha could be a rho. {2} cut of by the photo, pl. 28,4.
  • CAVI Comments: The facs. in CVA is not accurate. Some inscriptions seem to imitate names, cf. my readings from the postcard which are somewhat better: A: ... to left of left satyr's back, vertically down: 13 letters. To right of his left leg, curving downward: σονσ̣οπνεσ. To right of left maenad's chest, under her raised left arm, diagonally downward, not facing her: [--]ονεου̣[...]σ̣, retr. Between middle satyr's legs, vertically down: νεονονι̣οσ. To right of his right arm, diagonally downward: νεονεονυσ. To right of his legs, vertically downward, facing him: νεονεονεπο. Complete. To right of right maenad's chest, under her raised left arm, downward: νει̣εονενσ. To right of right satyr's chest, downward: 6+ letters. To right of his legs, vertically down: 9 letters.
