  • AVI Record Number: 7712
  • CAVI Collection: Toledo 1980.1022.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. Group E (Boulter){1}. Exekias, potter. Third quarter sixth. Ca. 550-540.
  • CAVI Subject: A: a chariot with a bearded warrior and driver wheeling to right; two horses are Kalliphoras and Pyrrichos. B: similar: a chariot; the warrior(?). Anchippos. Lid: a deer; panthers.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: in upper left-hand corner, facing in: Εχσεκιας εποιεσε, retr.{2}. In the upper right, below the top floral: Στεσιας καλος. Below the right trace horse's buttocks: Πυρ[ρ]ιχος, retr. Below the raised front hoofs of the horses: Καλ[λ]ιφορας{3}. B: Ανχιπ[π]ος, retr.{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} by the same hand: Louvre F 53 (ABV 136/49) and London B 147 (135/44); the former has very similar inscriptions. {2} complete; the final sigma of the name was added later; egrafse lacks the final nu, cf. Louvre F 53. {3} not Καλι[λ]ιφορα, as CVA, Bell and Bea. Arch. Kalliphoras was probably a famous stallion; he occurs also on Louvre F 53 and Berlin 1720 (cf. Bell 84 and AttScr). B.&L. give Pyrichos and Kalliphora and refer to Beazley (1950), 315/6; for horse names in general, to Moore's diss. [[Moore (1971)]]. {4} B.&L. think this the name of the warrior; I thought, rather the name of the charioteer.
  • CAVI Comments: The only genitals showing are of the right trace horse; they are male.
