  • CAVI Collection: Naples 85,982.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. From Cumae. Shuvalov Painter. Third quarter fifth. Middle period, 430-420 (Lezzi-Hafter 88-89).
  • CAVI Subject: A: a woman, with a lyre in the left hand, juggles a stick with the right. B: a woman. [The woman on A rushes toward the woman on B who is waiting.]
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: at the top of the scene, widely spaced: [Ζ]εῦ σῶτερ.
  • CAVI Comments: = RC 117. L.-H. points out that the letters ΕΥΣΩΤΕΡ cover the whole scene horizontally and reads: `Gut, Retter', which I think is wrong. There is room for a zeta at left but I do not know if it was ever written. Perhaps [Ζ]ευ Σωτερ̣ For Ζευς Σωτηρ, see LSJ, s.v. σωτηρ. The words are thought of as spoken by the woman, although they are not written from her mouth. The inscription is in applied white. Ionic alphabet. D-shaped rho.
