  • CAVI Collection: London D 50.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. From Athens. Achilles Painter. Ca. 460. 460/55-450 (Oakley). Early (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: Mistress and maid: woman to right carrying an offering tray from which hang many fillets; woman seated to left, her hands ready to receive the tray; above her head, mirror and oinochoe hung up.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of the carrier's head, at top and above the basket, horizontal near-stoich. left-aligned three-liner: Λιχα̣ς | καλο̣ς | Σαμ[ιο̃]ς{1}. The third line is not quite stoich.: . . . . . / . . . . . /. . . .
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} in ARV[1] Beazley wrongly gave the father's name as Samios, but this is corrected in ARV[2] to Samieus; see Meisterhans(3) 141, para. 10. The father's name is Σαμιεύς. - The sigmas are printed by C. Smith as four-stroke, in ARV[2] the last two are printed as lunate, while Kretschmer gives only the second and fourth as lunate (this is criticized by Smith).- My notation: Sigma 4 very flat (twice) and once near S 15 (see chart in AttScr).- Further, there is a lost area after the fourth letters of lines 1 and 2, which makes the final letters to come at an unreasonable distance; I wonder if this is restored properly. The position of the three final letters to each other also seems to me questionable.
