  • CAVI Lemma: BF lekythos. From Gela, `predio Leopardi'. Recalls Acheloos Painter (Haspels). Last quarter sixth.

  • CAVI Inscriptions: hιμερα.
  • CAVI Comments: Orsi, NSc: "un gruppo di figure sdraiate sopra una kline, sormontate dall' enigmatico nome: hιμερα." Webster discusses the name and thinks it should refer to the Sicilian town or its nymph; the inscription might have been commissioned by a Sicilian in Athens. I think probably the name of a hetaera (whether present or as a kale-name); for the name, cf. LGPN ii, IG i/3. 571 (500-480).
