  • CAVI Collection: London E 18.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Oltos. Last quarter sixth. Ca. 520-510 (Beazley in CB ii).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a naked woman tying her sandal. A: Heracles and the Amazons. B: Anacreon and two companions (komos).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: καλο[ς] Μεμν[ο]ν{1}. A: hερακλες. Λυκοπις. [Κυ]δοι[με].{2}. κα[λ]ο[ς], retr.(3)(?). B: to Anacreon's left: καλος, retr.{4}. On his right: Ανακ̣ρεον. To right of the youth in the center: Nυ[ν]φες. To right of the (missing) head of the right figure (youth or man): [---]ον.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so C. Smith and Bothmer; ARV[2] gives Μεμνον καλος. {2} Bothmer, on analogy with Arezzo 1465 = Amazons 131/5; Smith suggests Δω(ρ)ι[ς](?). See the BM Cat. for early readings; Bothmer is surely correct. {3} given by C. Smith, but not by Bothmer. {4} probably not to be connected with Anakreon, although this is possible (see CB ii).
