  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 372.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF neck amphora. From Vulci. Achilles Painter. Second quarter fifth. 460-455 (Oakley). Early.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Euphorbos with the infant Oedipus. B: a man{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of Euphorbos' face: Ευφορβος. To right of Oedipus' shoulder: Οιδιποδας.(2)
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} de Ridder thought it might be Polybus, but he has only a stick, not a scepter. {2} after Reichhold's dr.; de Ridder gives some odd letter forms.
  • CAVI Comments: Euphorbus (`good nourisher'), the Corinthain shepherd, is bringing the child to the king of Corinth. For the myth see Oakley 48 n. 155; the figure on B is a stock figure and not king Polybus.
