  • AVI Record Number: 6670
  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre CA 1943.
  • CAVI Lemma: BG oinochoe (mug). From Greece. Unattributed. Last quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated except for the inscription.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: In large letters which are bounded by relief lines: Επιδρομος καλος.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley says that the inscription is incised; Stamires and Vanderpool say that the space bounded by relief lines is scraped out. But Giroux apud Add.[2] says it is in red-figure, with the contour lines in relief. I take this to mean that the inscription is reserved with the letters outlined by relief lines (rather than being in applied red). For reserved inscriptions, see AttScr (1990), 59 and Bothmer (1992), 17 and n. 37: he discusses the five known vases with reserved inscriptions, including this one (he does not mention the relief lines). Beazley compares a fr. of a mug(?) at Olympia, JdI 53, Olympiabericht ii, 13,b: is this also inscribed? Stamires and Vanderpool compare the olpe fr. of Priapos, BSA 29 (1927-28) 204, top [probably ABV 170/2 = 446/3, which is a Dip. in a cartellino].
