  • CAVI Collection: Rome, Vatican 372.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. From Cerveteri. Leagros Group (Antiope Group I). Last quarter sixth. 510-500.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Heracles and Cerberus. B: Ariadne mounting the chariot of Dionysus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: nonsense: to right of Heracles' legs: νχδεο. To left of Hades' face: νοεh(λ)χδι, retr.{1}. Above Cerberus' head: (ν)δχυ, retr.{2}. To right of Hades' shoulder: (.)χασ, retr.{3}. Above Persephone: five letters, not legible in Albizzati's photo.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the lambda is not retr.; the delta may be a rho. This last holds true of all `deltas', whence perhaps Smith got the idea that these painters play with the name of Nearchos, although he too reads νχδεο. {2} the nu is not retr. {3} the first letter is a blob.
