  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 13,750.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. Achilles Painter. Third quarter fifth. 460/55-450 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Mistress and Maid: woman to right; woman to left holding plemochoe.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: [Διφ]ιλ[ος] [καλ]ος? [Μελ]αν[ο]π|ο{1}. Under foot, a Gr. or scratch{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the final omicron placed in line 2(ARV[2]), hence no doubt a three-liner as N.M. 12,787. Oakley reads the same, but without the dot under the sigma of καλος. {2} the cat. refers to chart 5 for the Gr. under the foot (which O. says may be a scratch), but it is not listed there; cf. p. 14 n. 27.
  • CAVI Comments: Done from ARV[2], which has no bibliography. The surface is in very bad shape. Mixed alphabet?
  • CAVI Number: 0901
  • AVI Bibliography: ARV[2] (1963), 996/134. — Oakley (1997), 138/184, pl. 100C-D (D shows a few letters); p. 15 chart 5 (Gr.).
