  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 1182.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. From Attica. Group of Polygnotos. Third quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Paris and Helen?{1}. (Seated woman and youth with spears, petasos, and chlamys; at left, a girl with a chest; at right, a girl with oinochoe and phiale; kalathos). B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above the girl at left: (κ)α̣(λ)(ε){2}. Above the seated woman: (υ)α̣(.)α̣(χ){3}. Above the girl at right: traces of an inscription{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} uncertain, Beazley. {2} or (κ)α̣(λ)(η). The kappa with a short parallel stroke; alpha lacks the cross stroke; lambda, two short parallel strokes; epsilon smeared, could also be eta. This looks like an imitation of καλη. {3} my reading is of misshapen letters; the `alpha' is like that in the first inscription. CC gives Υ(Γ)... and thinks probably Υγιεια, which is not right. Nonsense? {4} `Paris' apparently not inscribed.
  • CAVI Comments: Inscriptions in applied pink. Unclear whether the alphabet is Attic or Ionic.
  • CAVI Number: 0748
  • AVI Bibliography: Collignon–Couve (1902–4), no. 1262, pl. 44. — ARV[2] (1963), 1059/133.
