  • CAVI Lemma: WG lekythos. From Eretria. Achilles Painter. Second quarter fifth. Ca. 460. 460/55-450 (Oakley).
  • CAVI Subject: Mistress and Maid: woman seated to right on a chair holds out an alabastron; above her, at the top, hung up, an oinochoe and another object; woman to left, holding a mirror, behind her, at top, a sash hung up.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Between the women, at top, horizontal three-liner; the first two lines are stoich. and left-aligned, but the third line is irregular, at some distance and starting to left of the first letters of the preceding lines: Δρομιππος καλος Δρομοκλειδο{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the third line is at a distance from the second; the letters ΙΔ are placed together under the Ο of line 1. {2} But Oakley prints three-stroke sigma in καλος, which he also mentions on p. 11; I think, however, that it is a sigma S 14 or perhaps S 11, which are simplifications of four-stoke sigma (see the chart in AttScr).
