  • CAVI Collection: Mainz, University 118.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekanis. Manner of Meidias Painter. Late fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Aphrodite with companions: six women: only Aphrodite and Eunomia are seated, at opposite ends of the circle, both to left, Eunomia with a bird on her finger; the other four figures bring them chests and incense burners. Eukleia rushes toward Eunomia and brings her a chest.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To left of the knees of the seated Aphrodite: Π̣α(φ)ια{1}. On the rocks on which Eunomia sits: Ευ̣νομι[α]{2}. To lower left of the bottom of Eukleia's himation: Ε[υ̣]κλεια̣.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the pi incomplete near a break; phi is semi-circular with the vertical projecting above and with only a half-circle to the lower right of the vertical. {2} no trace of the alpha, but perhaps read: Ευ̣νομι[α].
  • CAVI Comments: Hampe (1955) suggests Eukleia is inviting Eunomia to participate in her already established cult. Paphia for Aphrodite is also found on Naples 2296, q.v., ARV[2] 1327/28 (cf. LIMC iv, 407, s.v. Halia, no. 1) with Nereid names. Böhr discusses Eunomia and Eukleia. Wehgartner (1987), 190 n. 18 and 193 n. 93, mentions the vase. Böhr thinks it was a commissioned wedding present, as Wehgartner has proved for Berlin 2705, ibidem, 186ff., figs. 1-3.
