  • CAVI Collection: Naples 81,401.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF amphora. From Ruvo. Group of Naples 3235. Last quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Marsyas (playing the flutes) and Olympos (playing the lyre), with three maenads, two satyrs and a boy satyr. B: The Theft of the Palladion: Helen(?) between Diomedes and Odysseus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Μαρσυ[ας]. Ολυμπος{1}. The boy satyr: Σι[μος]. Τυρβα[ς]. Ορανιη. Θαλεα. The right-most maenad: κα[λη]. B: Burn calls the middle figure simply a woman: only ελ̣ survives: [Θ]εα̣[νω] or Ελ̣[ενη].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Fr?nkel has Ολομπος: a misprint?
  • CAVI Comments: = 3235. Theano, wife of Antenor and priestess of Athena, surrendered the Palladion to the Greeks. This restoration was suggested by E. Braun, Annali 1836, 298. But on S Italian vases Theano is fleeing in terror. Most prefer Helen, as suggested by F.G. Welcker, Die griechischen Trag?dien mit R?cksicht auf den epischen Cyclus (Bonn 1839) i, 148. Helen helped Diomedes plot the capture of Troy and may have discussed the Palladion with him (Moret 74 n. 3). But Burn points out that the woman is not helping the Greeks but holding them back; she agrees with Welcker that Helen is arbitrating a quarrel of the heroes. Cf. the lost Panathenaic amphora, Burn N 2, ARV[2] 1316/2, where Helen is definitely present. For possible political implications, see Burn 64-65. Ionic alphabet.
