  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 2032.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF/WG alabastron. From Chiusi. Diosphos Painter (Haspels). Early fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Zeus with scepter to right pursuing Ganymede who runs after a cock; at left, Eros with a kentron flying to right; at right, bearded man with staff to right, looks back.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: partly imitation letters: to lower left of Eros, downward: 7 letters, mainly Attic lambdas. Between Zeus and G., at mid-height, curved downward: 4 + 2 letters, interrupted by the scepter, retr. Above Zeus' outstretched arm and over G.'s head, curving upward: 6 letters. Above the cock, similar: 4 letters. To lower right of the man at right, vertical: 3 letters remain.
  • CAVI Comments: K.-D. lists as Once Berlin 2032. She mistakenly indicates that Zeus and Ganymede are inscribed, but the inscriptions are clearly nonsense. Note however that there is one inscription for each figure, as often in theDiosphos Painter. K.-D. gives no attribution. - Many lambdas or upsilons. But there are other shapes.
