  • AVI Record Number: 2824
  • CAVI Collection: Boston 1973.88.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. Euthymides. Last quarter sixth. 520-510. Very early (?){2}.
  • CAVI Subject: A: two boy jumpers seen from the front, with a young flautist. B: two boy jumpers seen from the back, with a young flautist.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: The right jumper: Καλ[λ]ιπ[π]ιδες. The flautist: Αινεα[ς]. Below: Λεαγρος καλος. B: The flautist:(Σ)μικυθιο(ν), retr. Λεαγρος καλος, ναιχι, retr. Under the foot, Gr.: upside-down trident; or epsilon with extended middle hasta? Sampi. Johnston (1979): 2 non-alphabetic marks{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {2} Robertson (1977); Workshops of Euphronios, perhaps very early Euthymides (Robertson (1992), ). {3} a parallel is Palermo 1820 (= 1110), by Psiax, fig. 14,e (facs.); see Johnston (1979), p. 2, fig. 14,e, ABV 292/4, Add.[2] 76. Delete note 1. {1} I read the number in the museum wrongly as 1971.10.
  • CAVI Comments: Robertson reads Σμικύθιον, but Σμικυθίων is Attic (PA 12,766-71). R.'s text gives ναικι, but the dr. shows ναιχι. The museum no. is not given by Robertson (1977) or in Add.[2], but in Robertson (1992), R. gives the number as 1973.88. - A similar jumper (high up, with legs drawn up): Corinth CCP-2621, Hesp. 49 (1980) 304/27, pl. 87. - Cohen says the vase is `related to Euphronios' work'.
