  • AVI Record Number: 4881
  • CAVI Collection: Madrid 10,901.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF Panathenaic prize amphora (?){1}. Unattributed. Third quarter sixth. 530 or before (?).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Athena. B: two hoplites fighting.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: on the left column, in red(2): τον Αθενεθεν αθλον.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} undersized. {2} so Leroux ("Sur la colonette de gauche, peint en rouge") and CVA; Brandt says in error: incised on the column. For inscriptions in red, or incised, on Panathenaics, see AttScr (1990), 183-85.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscription is painted in red on the column; the painter thought of a columnar monument of which there are many on the Acropolis (Neils). Despite the inscription, both Brandt (9 n. 5) and Neils declare the vase not to be a prize vase. The subject on B is not standard as the hoplomachia's prize was not oil (see Neils 198 n. 82). Kyle says the hoplomachia was not a Panathenaic event.
