  • CAVI Collection: Boston 95.25.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. From Capua. Manner of Kleophon Painter II{1}. 420's or 410's (Beazley (1929a)). Ca. 425 (CB).
  • CAVI Subject: A: sacrifice: young flautist; youth bringing up a ram; bearded priest with his hands in a small vessel held for him over an altar by a youth carrying a kanoun; bearded man with his staff. B: satyr and maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: All inscriptions horizontal above the heads. A: young flute player: Καλλιας. Youth with sheep: Μαντιθεος. Priest: ---]ξ̣. Youth: Ιππ[ο]κλ[ης]. Bearded man with staff: Αρεσιας. Under the foot, Gr.: hε.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so ARV[2]; originally Beazley att. to Kleophon Ptr., not his best work; then to his manner; in CB: almost certain it is by the painter himself.
  • CAVI Comments: For the identification of the names with political figures see Beazley (1929a) and CB iii, 77. Beazley read the last letter of the priest's name as sigma (so also Matheson), and Schefold suggested [Κριτια]ς. I suggest xi, whence Peisianax or more likely Phaiax are possibilities. Note that Sue Chapman also drew the priest's final letter looking more like a xi than a sigma. - M. 277 discusses the political implications of the sacrifice: Beazley called it "the oligarch's sacrifice", performed early in the Peloponnesian War. Webster (1972), 50 and n. 4 suggested that Boston 95.24, also found in Capua, was made for the same occasion (ARV[2] 1157/iiia2, near Christie Painter); more bibl. in M., 340 n. 38: the sacrifice is perhaps for Pythian Apollo. Ionic alphabet for the painted inscriptions. The Gr. has closed heta and archaic epsilon.
