  • CAVI Collection: Basel, Antikenmuseum BS 496.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. Probably Phrynos Painter{1}. Third quarter sixth. 550-540 (Mommsen).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Birth of Athena: in the center, Zeus seated while giving birth (Athena, armed, springs forth from his head); at left, Hephaestus between a goddess and an Eileithyia; at right, another Eileithyia; Hera enthroned; Poseidon. B: Introduction of Heracles into Olympus: in the center, Athena; at left, Zeus, Hera and Hermes; at right, Heracles, Poseidon, and Iolaus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: A: to Athena's left, above Zeus' head and over the head of the left Eileithyia: ενενενε. Between Athena's shield, above Hera's head and to left of Poseidon's outstretched hand: four letters, the third an omicron{2}. B: between Hera's and Hermes' lower legs, facing Hera: ευ(.)ν(ϝ)γ{3}. Between the faces of Hermes and Athena: οτοε(γ)ενε(σ){4}. To right of Heracles' face: εονενει, retr. Between Athena's and Heracles' lower legs: ενε(σ)ενι. Under foot, Gr.: Ε.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} see Mommsen 137: by the same hand as Würzburg 241, which Beazley attributed to the Phrynos Painter. M. is non-committal on how the vase in Basel would affect the work of the Phrynos Painter. {2} not legible in the photo. {3} the third letter unclear in the photo.; the `digamma' probably a badly written epsilon. {4} the fifth letter unclear in the photo. The last perhaps a reversed three-stroke sigma.
