  • CAVI Collection: Boston 00.354.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup{1}. From Tanagra. Near Jena Painter, akin to Diomed Painter. Ca. 400. 404/3 (?) (Robertson).
  • CAVI Subject: Woman dismounting from her horse at an altar.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of her head, in white: Σπαρτη.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Acrocup.
  • CAVI Comments: See the full discussion in CB iii. Sparte was a daughter of Eurotas, the wife of Lakedaimon, and the mother of Amyklas. For Athenian Philolaconism, cf. Hauser and Corbett. - 404/3 is a good date for this vase, because of its pro-Spartan bias; Sparte is the nymph of Sparta (Robertson). P.-Z. however attempts a date in the 370's.
