  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. Achilles Painter. Second quarter fifth. 460-450. 460/55-450 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Departure Scene: woman to right holding out a helmet; behind her, at top, oinochoe hung up; woman frontal, head to left, holding shield and spear.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Between the figures (closer to the left woman), at top, horizontal stoich. left-aligned three-liner: Δι(δ/φ)ιλος | καλος | Μ(ε)λανοπο{1}. ....... ..... ........
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Oakley on p. 12 says that delta is written for phi; the ph. shows a delta with two small circles at the bottom: is this an attempt at correction? The epsilon in the father's name is miswritten (according to the ph.), but I think it is not an eta. However, Oakley on p. 11 cites the vase for eta for epsilon. - Earlier read Μηλανοπο, which I interpreted as Μhελανοπο [[Μh(ε)λ]]. The new reading is here taken from Oakley.
