  • CAVI Collection: Tarquinia, Museo Nazionale RC 6848.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Tarquinia. Oltos. Euxitheos, potter. Last quarter sixth. 510-500. 500-480 (Ferrari).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: a warrior. A: deities in Olympus. B: Dionysus mounting a chariot, with satyrs and maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: along the margin: Ευχσιθεος εποιεσεν, retr. A: to left of Hebe's head (she looks left): hεβε, retr. To right of Hermes' head: hερμες. Similar: Αθεναα. To right of Zeus' head: Ζευς. To Ganymedes' left: Γανυμεδες, retr. Similar: hε^στια, retr.{1}. Under her chair, an irregular two-liner, vertically up: Ολτος | εγραφσ̣εν{2}. In the same position as for Hestia: Αφροδιτε, retr. To left of Ares' head (he looks right): Αρες, retr. B: between a thyrsus and the back of a leading maenad's head: (θ)εος{3}. Behind the head of a satyr playing the lyre: Τερπες, retr. To left of Dionysus' face: Διονυσος, retr. To left of a maenad, facing her: Καλ[λ]ις, retr. To left of a fluting satyr's upper body: Τερπον, retr. Behind him: καλος, retr. Under the foot, Etruscan Gr.: itum turnce venel apelinas tinas cliniiaras. See CII suppl. 3.356 and St. etr. 5, pl. 15,1.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} an arm intervenes. {2} the nu is displaced for lack of space. {3} so CVA and others (including K.-D.), but Fränkel (after Hartwig? See Roscher) reads Θερο, which is much more plausible. The theta lacks the dot (= O).
