  • CAVI Collection: Madrid 10,916.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. From Vulci. Sappho Painter or closely related{1}. Late sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Heracles at banquet, with Dionysus. B: Heracles and the sons of Eurytus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Mainly after Leroux: A: above D.'s head: Διο(ν)υσος [ΙN. The last three letters vertical. {2}. To right of lyre: χιοιο{3}. To right of the reclining Heracles, and above the head of the standing woman: κι – – ο{4}. B: above the collapsing archer: τι^ονο, retr.{5}. Starting above Eurytus' head and ending above Heracles': Ευρυτος, retr.{6}. Below the fallen archer's head and between Eurytus' legs, which puts it to left of the second fallen warrior's body: Ιφι^τος{7}. To left of the running warrior's face, in a curve around it and facing it: Αντ[ι]φολο[ς], retr.{8}. In front of the woman, starting at the shoulder, slanting downward and continuing vertically between her arms: Ιολ^εα^(ς), retr.{9}. The readings of Alvarez-Ossorio differ from CVA's: A: Διονυσος. B: Ευρυτος. τιονο. Ιφιτος. [Ιο][λ]ε[ι]ος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} emulates Leagros Group (ABV). {2} nu reversed; first three-stroke, second sigma reversed. CVA: Διο(ν)υσο(ς) v. [ΙN. The last three letters vertical. {3} interpreted by Leroux as χιοιο, sc. οινου. CVA: χιοιο. {4} Leroux: κιτο (pour κιττου?). CVA shows: κι(.) and ο. {5} Eurytos' hand intervenes. {6} so the text; the ph. seems to show: Ευ^[ρ]υτος, with the tip of Heracles' bow intervening. {7} Leroux refers this to the fallen warrior at the right, no doubt because he thinks of tiono as a garbled name of the fallen archer. But tiono could be a nonsense word and Ifitos the archer's name leaving the other nameless. {8} Leroux: `Αντφολο (pour Αντιφονος?)'. The letters run into the warrior's arm, hence there was no room for the final sigma. Αντιφονος(?), CVA. Αντιφονος or Αντιλοφος, Richter. {9} the two arms intervene. Leroux prints the final sigma as a nu; I think from the ph. that it is sigma S 11 ([).
