  • AVI Record Number: 4108a
  • CAVI Collection: Küsnacht, Hirschmann G 18.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF skyphos. Zephyros Painter (Lezzi-Hafter). Ca. 460-450 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: A: betweeen trees, a bearded man draws water from a well with a kados. B: palaestra: at left a small bearded man works with a pick axe; at right, a large bearded man sprinkles water from a kados. Under the handle B/A: a pillar; above it, sandals and, separately, aryballos and strigil hung up; at right, also under a handle, a large wash basin on a fluted stand.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the pillar, vertically: kalos{1}. On the rim of the basin, horizontally: kalos{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so L.-H. in the text; the phs. in `Images' are unclear as to individual letters.
  • CAVI Comments: Listed in `Images' as Küsnacht, Private. - L.-H. thinks rightly that the man drawing water and the small man with the pick axe are slaves; she wonders whether the large man sprinkling is not foreign too. [Are all three, despite the difference in size, slaves preparing the palaestra, which is indicated under one handle?]
