  • CAVI Collection: New York 21.88.73.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 450-440.
  • CAVI Subject: A: citharode with two men and a youth. B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: between the head of the man at left and the back of the citharode's head: καλος. Above the seated man and to left of the youth's face, horizontally in two lines: Nικομα[χο]ς | κ[α]λος.
  • CAVI Comments: The restoration Nικομα[χο]ς is Beazley's; see ARV[2] 1602, where the name Nikomachos is cited from a stamnos in Villa Giulia 3584, also by Polygnotos (ARV[2] 1028/15). [This is probably an error for London E 454, ARV[2] 1028/14.] Beazley also points out that the missing alpha in κ[α]λος is thought to be behind a spear. Disjointed letters and miswritten inscriptions.
