  • CAVI Collection: Schwerin 731.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF skyphos. Lewis Painter (Polygnotos II). Second quarter fifth. 470-460. Ca. 465 (CVA).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Zephyrus(?) pursuing: B: Hyacinthus(?){1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of Zephyrus' forehead: καλε{2}. B: to left and right of the boy's head: καλο(ς){3}. On his left, a pillar, on which kion., nonsense: ιλι(.).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} see ARV[2]: the figure on A may have a female breast and is inscribed καλη [sic]; Smith 19, n. 28, suggests Eos and, on B, Tithonos. [Smith actually suggested Cephalus.] See Sichtermann. Beazley wonders if Iris is possible and refers to ARV[2] 416/5. Sichtermann considers this a Zephyros - Hyacinthos replica of an Eos - Kephalos scene. Robertson thinks the pursuer is definitely female; according to him, H.R.W. Smith sugested Eos pursuing Tithonos; Schefold (1981), Chione, daughter of Boreas and Oreithyia. See also Naples inv. 126,057. Robertson thinks Smith may be right. {2} so pl. 13a in Smith; in the text he gives καλη. CVA has καλε, Attic. Beazley in ARV[2] has καλη with Attic lambda, which would be mixed alphabet. {3} so CVA.
