  • CAVI Collection: New York 07.286.66.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF calyx krater. From Agrigento. Spreckels Painter. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 440.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Cadmus and the dragon, with Harmonia, Ares and Athena. B: bearded man between two women.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above Cadmus, horizontal two-liner, oblique stoich.: Ε υ α λ κ ο ς(1) κ α λ ο ς. . . . . . . . . . . . . Above Harmonia and to left of Ares' face, similar, but the oblique stoich. disturbed at the end because a spear interferes: Α λ ο ν η ς(2) κ α λ ος. . . . . . . . . . .. B: stoich. between woman at left and man: καλος. | καλος{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} for the name see Threatte (1996). {2} Richter reads Αλονης, but Beazley says the name must be badly misspelled. {3} there is some confusion in Richter–Hall about the number of kalos': there are only the two given above.
  • CAVI Comments: Very idiosyncratic writing. Mixed alphabet? Attic except for the eta. Some alphas resemble mu's. Some Attic lambdas have the vertical extending below the short stroke.
  • CAVI Number: 5571
