  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 1257.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: RF pelike. From Athens. Compared to vases near Pronomos Painter. Last quarter fifth. Ca. 410-400.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Dionysus with a maenad who pours for him from a wineskin{2}. B: three youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to left of Dionysus' forehead: Δ̣ιονυσο[ς]{3}. Above and to right of the maenad's head: [--?](.)καλλος{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} probably not 1259, as my note has it. {2} ARV[2] says: Dionysus and maenads. {3} the final sigma probably never written as the head interferes. {4} definitely two lambdas. This should be the maenad's name, but I can find no suitable one. Hardly Διονυσος | καλ{λ}ος as there is a trace of a letter before the kappa.
  • CAVI Comments: Inscriptions originally in white. Four-stroke sigma. Upsilon with stem and curved bars.
  • CAVI Number: 0763
  • AVI Bibliography: Sophoule (1888), pl. 2 (A). — Collignon–Couve (1902–4), no. 1270. — ARV[2] (1963), 1337/bottom.
