  • AVI Record Number: 7801
  • CAVI Collection: Tübingen 5640.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF oinochoe. Painter of Louvre Symposium (Böhr). Third quarter fifth. Ca. 430 (Böhr).
  • CAVI Subject: Symposium: upper part of a wreathed and bearded man's head; upper part of a youth's head, his right hand raised to a very tall stick. Böhr thinks both figures are reclining.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Near the left edge, high above the man's head and to left of it: [--]σιτος{1}. καλος Λυσανδρ[ος].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Böhr does not mention whether this name refers to the man on the left; if not (as is likely), then to a lost figure on the far left. Böhr, p. 85: "Möglich ist eine Herkunftsangabe wie z.B. `Thasitos' (Hansen, [Rückläufiges Wörterbuch 290])." I suggest [Παρα]σιτος, which CIG lists as a proper name in 4.8077 and 8465. Böhr thinks Lysandros is miswritten for the known love name Lyandros, for which see ARV[2] 1595 and O. Fuchs, Der attische Adel im Spiegel der Kalos-inschriften (diss. Vienna 1974) 212. But Böhr also refers to Boston 65.1166, q.v., with Lysandra and Lysimachis (Gr.).
  • CAVI Comments: Mixed alphabet: [--]sitos is Attic; kalos is Ionic; Lusandr[--] is Attic again. Tailed rho.
