  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup{1}. From Vulci. Oltos; very early Euphronios{2}. Cachrylion, potter. Last quarter sixth. Ca. 520. Early (ARV[2]).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Theseus and a maiden{3}. A: Theseus and Antiope. B: a man (or youth) and a woman between two boys on horseback{4}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: from the top of Theseus' head (not from the mouth, which is closed): χαιρε συ{5}. A: [Θεσε]υς, retr. Αντιοπεια. Περιθος, retr. Φορ(β)ας, retr. B: Χαχ[ρ]υλιον εποιεσε[ν]{6}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the foot is missing, see ARV[2] 1622. {2} Oltos, Beazley; Euphronios, very early, Robertson, Ohly-Dumm. {3} one of the rescued maidens, cf. the victory dance on the François Vase (Beazley, ARV[2]); or Ariadne (Murray, J. Neils in AJA). {4} Theseus and Helen (Neils). {5} often considered a greeting, but in AttScr (1990) I consider it rather the painter's comment. {6} the verb is on the Villa Giulia fr. {7} Euphr. has dotted theta; the photo is not clear: it could be a cartwheel theta. Very small letters; neater than elsewhere for Oltos, but in the early style of Euphronios.
