  • CAVI Collection: Basel, Antikenmuseum BS 498.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF hydria. Antimenes Painter. 530-520.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: Aristeia of Neoptolemos (Little Iliad): Apollo striding to right, threatening with his bow to protect Helicaon; Helicaon (son of Antenor and son-in-law of Priam) lying dead to left (killed by Neoptolemos); chariot to left, with charioteer pierced by Neoptolemos' spear; Eurypylos (son of Telephos of Pergamum and nepherw of Priam) dead on ground to left (also killed by N.); chariot of Athena to left; Athena running to left (to support Neoptolemos). Body: A: Heracles and Cycnus, with Ares at right. B: Zeus seated between Hermes and Athena.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Shoulder: to right of Apollo's bow, horizontal: Απολλον. Above the body of the dead Helicaon, bearing upward: h(ε)λικαον, retr.{1}. Charioteer being killed by Neoptolemos: Ιο[--]ς{2}. Behind N.'s back, at shoulder height, starting horizontal, the last five letters bending down and interrupted by the horses' legs of his chariot: Nεο{π}πτολε(μ){ο}ος{3}. Above the dead Eurypylos, diagonally upward: Ευρυπυλος, retr.{4}. Body: A: to right of Heracles' face, bearing upward: hερακλεες. Below Ares' left shoulder, diagonally downward: Αρες. B: above the seated Hermes' head, downward: hερμ(ε){ε}ς{5}. To left of Athena's lower body (she faces right), diagonally downward and facing her: Αθεναα, retr. [[see CAVI 7512]].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the epsilon unclear in the ph. {2} so Burow 42; not clear in ph. {3} my reading from the photo.: Burow reads Nεοππτολεμος and says that the last three letters are to the right of the horses' legs. But I see a trace of an extra letter to the left of the legs (that would be the mu) and two o's and a sigma to the right. {4} Burow's reading. {5} the second epsilon is only a trace. Odd that the inscription looks in the ph. as if written in a restored area.
