  • CAVI Collection: New York 26.49.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF aryballos. From Attica. Nearchos. Second quarter sixth. 560-550.
  • CAVI Subject: Handle plate, front: three satyrs masturbating. Left side: Perseus. Right side: Hermes. Rim: battle of pygmies and cranes.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Handle plate, front: behind the upper body of the left satyr: χαιρει. In front: Δοφιος{1}. I. e., Δοφιος | χαιρει. Above the head of the middle satyr: Τερπεκηλος{2}. In front of the right satyr, not facing: Φσολας{3}. Behind his upper body: hαοι. To right of his legs: λει and (separated by the tail): βρε. Under the plate, Gr. in the black glaze: Nεαρχος | εποιεσεν με{4}. On the left side of the handle plate, to left of the body: Περσε|ευς, retr. At right: hευ|σετι{5}. On the right side of the handle plate: in the upper left: τει. Between Hermes' legs: hοδι. On his lower right, down: hερμες{6}. On the rim, scattered: ριο, retr. θ[--]. αυασ, retr. κρο. καλ, retr. χοσ. αρυσ. ρορυ. θεν. ακι. ϙε. θοι, retr. βαυσ, retr. πυ. οαι{7}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} cf. δεφομαι (Beazley (1931–2)). {2} cf. Il. 5.759-60: οι δε εκηλοι τερπονται (Richter as a second suggestion, accepted by Beazley in AJA). {3} from ψωλή. {4} Beazley originally doubted this signature [probably because the incision caused much flaking of the glaze], but later recanted; see JHS 52. Cohen points out that the BG segment under the handle was planned for an inscription (which was executed after firing); this BG segment imitates Corinthian practice. {5} hευς ετι, "noble Perseus furthermore" (Richter), but Beazley rightly considers the letters meaningless (BSA 32). {6} hερμες hοδιτες has occurred to me, but the letters are in the wrong sequence and the last letter seems to be an iota. τῃ Ερμης οδι (Richter) is hardly right. {7} Hampe's attempt to read these inscriptions as the cries of cranes (cf. Il. 3,1 ff.) is not convincing.
