  • CAVI Collection: Malibu 79.AE.19.+(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: Fragmentary RF cup. Onesimos. Euphronios, potter. Early fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Medea and the daughters of Pelias. A-B: Amazonomachy with Heracles and Telamon.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: above the heads, along the margin: [Ευφρονιος επο]ι̣εσεν{2}. Ext.: [Τε]λα[μο]ν{3}. h[---]{4}. On one handle fr., Gr.: [Ε]υφρονιος, retr.{5}. On the other, Gr.: εποιεσεν{6}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} changed from the wrong no. 17.+ {2} I am not certain that there is a trace of the iota extant; see GettyMusJ, figs. 7i and 8. {3} on 82.AE.33, fr. 3. {4} on fr. 9. {5} fig. 9, upside down. {6} fig. 10. The reconstruction on p. 17 is incorrect.
  • CAVI Comments: + 82.AE.33. + frs. added by Bothmer. Ohly-Dumm considers the Gr. signature false; Williams agrees. Cohen restores it as on one handle, each word starting from the outer end of the handle toward the root, the potter's name being retrograde. Thus the signature differs fom the Gr. signature of Euphronios on the handle of London E 44, where both words start from the handle root of one handle and retr. is avoided. [The handwriting is also different. It is very coarse.] The problem with Cohen's reconstruction is that both words face out rather than toward each other. I had therefore assumed that the two words on the Malibu cup were on opposite handles and written from the outside toward the cup. The inscription could be read easily by someone holding the cup by both handles and lifting it to drink from. In either case, it is unlikely that the words were written on the frs., and the signature is surely genuine. See also AttScr. The fragments with the inscriptions on the Exterior are new and unpublished. The rendering in Add.[2] is not accurate.
