  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre F 66.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF Siana cup. From Etruria. Unattributed. Second quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a man running. Ext.: no figured decoration (inscriptions on the lip).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: nonsense inscriptions poorly reported in CVA: to left of the man's face, in a downward curve: αγβξμαο̣(.)(.), retr.{1}. (combining autopsy with the photo in CVA). CVA's text tries to read Αλεξ[ι]μα(χ)ος. To right of the man's head, similarly curved: [--]υκςβ(ατ), the last two letters upside down. A third inscription is between the man's legs. Ext.: inscriptions well-spaced on the lip, going partly under the handles: A: Beazley's reading in JHS: καλον ειμι το ποτεριον καλ[ον]. B: nonsense: given as repetition of καυ not less than three times.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} `Ionic' gamma.
  • CAVI Comments: Restored. I suspect use of the Corinthian alphabet, as the use of beta (and of course xi) would be very unusual in Attic nonsense.
