  • CAVI Collection: Boston 95.31.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Tarquinia. Douris. First quarter fifth. 490-480. Transitional II (Bare) (Buitron-Oliver).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Eros carrying a youth(1); below, palmette design. Ext.: plain.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: starting at the bottom, along margin: Δορις εγραφ[σ]εν : Χαιρε[στρατος καλος]{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} CB has: Int.: Zephyrus and Hyacinthus(?), after Hartwig; but the case is not very strong; it is objected to by Greifenhagen and Sichtermann who interpret the scene as Eros with a mortal. Shapiro also thinks the Int. shows Eros and an undentified eromenos, not Zephyrus and Hyacinthus. {2} in lieu of the [σ] there is a vacat. B.-O. gives Δορις εγραφ[σ]ε, etc.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Van Branteghem collection. CB says the old dr. in the German Inst. in Rome shows more letters than are now preserved. [Does this explain B.-O.'s reading, see n. 2 below?] The vase is poorly preserved. Signature and kalos-name are separated by an interpoint also on Louvre G 118; G 120; Leipzig T 509; [Basel Kä 425]. Possibly traces of three letters (ΙΙ.λ) to left of Eos' wing; but this is quite uncertain. - CB poises the picture so that Eros is carrying the boy horizontally: he is sinking down onto a bed of flowers. Delta not dotted. Tailed rho.
