  • AVI Record Number: 4951
  • CAVI Collection: Malibu 81.AE.213.+
  • CAVI Lemma: Fragmentary RF phiale mesomphalos. Douris. [--]kros or [--]chros, potter. First quarter fifth{1}. Transitional I (Rich) (Buitron-Oliver).
  • CAVI Subject: Int. zone: three scenes: 1. seated deities; 2. combat: probably Achilles and Hector; 3. pursuit? Perhaps Zeus pursuing Ganymede. Ext.: two scenes, each with Heracles: probably the archery contest of Heracles and Eurytus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: [Αθ]εναια. Δορις [εγραφσ]εν. Αρε[ς]. Διο[νυσος]. Αμφ[ιτριτε]. Πλουτον. Δεμ[ετερ]. Κορε. (For Persephone). Αχ[ιλλευς]. [--]ο[--]. [--](.)δες{2}. Ext.: below the top edge, horizontal two-liner, preserved only at the right edge: [--]κρος | [εποι]εσεν. Or: [--]χρος{3}. Etruscan Gr.: [s]ut[il], retr.{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} beginning of the early middle period (Robertson). {2} the first preserved letter is not iota and probably not alpha. Robertson thinks it may be a kalos-name. {3} B.-O. in the cat. gives [--]κρος (or: [--]χρος) [επο]ιεσεν ... ο]δε; I cannot find a discussion in the text. Robertson did not have the final ...]δε. I do not know what to make of it. Cf. Euphronios' signature on Louvre G 110 εγραφσεν ending in ταδε? There is no known potter in --]chros; the only potter in --]kros is Smikros and Robertson thinks he may possibly be the potter here. {4} I read: Su(tina). {5} B.-O. gives: + 85.AE.18. + L.92.AE.88.2 and 3.
