  • CAVI Lemma: RF alabastron. From Elateia (Boeotia). Unattributed. Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: a youth leaning on his stick and taking a necklace from a box; alabastron. B: a woman tying her girdle (apoptygma in teeth); at right, kalathos; at left, alabastron; at right, lekythos.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of the youth's head: καλε. Below the box, stoich. two-liner, the second word starting under the third letter of the first line(1): Αλεξομενὸς | καλος. B: to left of the woman's head: καλε, retr.; at right: hε παις.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} according to Smith's text.
  • CAVI Comments: The kalos-name only here in Beazley; not in PA, but Pape has Keil, Inscr. boeot. 76; LGPN ii has the name also from IG i/3. 1475, ca. 550(?). The more common form is Alexamenos (Αλεξαμενός), see Pape, s.v. (this name is not in PA or LGPN ii). Mixed alphabet. The letters are Attic except Xi and sigma in Alexomenos. It is interesting that the inscriptions are Attic, while the proper name alone is in Ionic.
