  • CAVI Collection: Naples Stg. 311.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekanis lid. From Canosa. Meidias Painter. Late fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Antiochos and women. Pandion and women{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Antiochos. Between Klymene and the seated Pandion, at mid-height: Πανδιω̣ν. Above the altar behind Klymene: Κλυμενη (the first three letters very faint). Between Pandion's back and and the figure of Epicharis, at mid-height: Επιχαρις. καλη (goes with Epicharis){2}. Behind her, at the same height: Nikopolis or Nikepolis (hard to see in the ph.). Μυρρινισκη καλη{2}. Two other inscriptions on either side of a thymiaterion.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} "in glory and joy," Beazley (1935). {2} not a real kale-inscription, ARV[2].
  • CAVI Comments: An atticized paradise garden: Pandion and Antiochos appear with women: Klymene and Epicharis express general pleasantness; Nike (offering a libation to Antiochos, welcoming the Attic hero into her paradise garden) and Nikepolis are connected with Athens. Myrrhiniske kale may refer to the famous Myrrhine, priestess of Athena Nike. Pandion's shrine was probably located on the Acropolis. Antiochos is a visitor as he had no shrine (see Kron 109ff.). The inscriptions are done mainly from pl. 10 in Burn. They are usually at mid-height and horizontal, in very casual disjointed letters, which are hard to see in the photos.
