  • CAVI Lemma: BF/WG lekythos (outline). Near Sappho Painter (Haspels). End of sixth (?). Ca. 500.
  • CAVI Subject: Hoplite to left between two Oriental archers facing him; to left of the right archer, BF dog.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: to right of left archer's face, upwards: ι[υχι[ε (1. Readings from Haspels: ιλυιι[ϝ.); above the dog, bearing slightly upward: (.)ιλυπ(1); to left of the right archer's upper body and face, (between it and the hoplite's shield), upwards: ικσυχιδ{2}. Readings from the photo.: ι(σ)υι ιε(τ){2}. ισυπ. ιχσυ(σ)ιδ.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the number may be wrong. {2} a small gap in the inscription. Haspels on p. 113: near Sappho Painter. "mock inscriptions in the manner of the Diosphos Painter in his bolder mood." H. compares Euthymides for the three-figure group and the attitudes of the archers. I would not compare these inscriptions with the Diosphos Painter so much as with Euthymides. The [ I think are sigma S 11 (see chart in AttScr). - Earlier readings: nonsense: {1} readings from Haspels: diagonally up: ιλυιι[ϝ. Horizontal: ιλυπ. As the first: ικσυχιδ. {2} readings from photo.: ι(σ)υι ιε(τ) (witha a small gap). ισυπ. ιχσυ(σ)ιδ. E] {1} the first letter is a raised horizontal stroke. I see no letter after the epsilon. But there is a slight gap after the fourth letter, as noted before. {2} perhaps one letter missing in the following break. [[Earlier, more complete version of H.R.I.'s notes: " N] Bea. phs. 603 (dr.). Apparently not listed by Beazley. ==]]The number must be wrong, as 671 is a RF pelike by the Agrigento Ptr., ARV[2] 578/73 (there numbered St. 1529), Para. 513. Peredol’skaya (1967), 100/102, pls. 74,2, 75,3, 175,6 (facss.), with MercGrr. - Earlier readings: nonsense: {1} readings from Haspels: diagonally up: ιλυιι[ϝ. Horizontal: ιλυπ. As the first: ικσυχιδ. {2} readings from photo.: ι(σ)υι ιε(τ) (witha a small gap). ισυπ. ιχσυ(σ)ιδ. `ltr' Attic. {2} : Delta disjointed. Epsilon near S 4. Sigma 1, S 1 and S 12. Tau = gamma 4. Upsilon 3. Chi 1. These should be superseded."]]
