  • CAVI Collection: Boston 01.8058.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF hydria. From Orvieto. Related to Lysippides Painter. 530-520.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: fight, with a chariot. Body: Heracles and Triton. Predella: horseman and youths.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Body: to left of the left woman, facing the side margin: Ε(λ)παρ[ε?]το[ς] καλος{1}. To right of her head: Μν̣εσιλ[λ]α, and to right of her lower body: καλε. Above Triton's tail: Αμ[φι]θοε{2}. To right of Heracles' forehead: καλο(ς){3}. Between the legs of Heracles and a bearded man: Χοιρος καλος. Under the foot, Gr.: Nεος{4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} I had the area cleaned: only a trace remains of the epsilon. The lambda is clearly indistinguishable from an upsilon, although all other lambda's are of the regular Attic shape. On this see Beazley (1941), 599. I think this is a real writing (copying?) mistake. {2} Beazley's restoration; he refers the name to the fleeing Nereid. {3} the sigma with an accidental extra stroke. Beazley suggests that this refers to Heracles. {4} the letters are small, but I thought the inscription looked ancient. For parallels see Copenhagen, Ny Carlsberg 2654 and Mississippi, University Museum 1977.3.57 (ex Baltimore, Robinson). Not mentioned in CVA. The graffito is modern; see 5104.
