  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre E 869.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF hydria. Archippe Group (Tyrrhenian Group iv){1}. Second quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: lions between sirens. Body: Achilles receiving his armor from Thetis.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Shoulder: partly nonsense and mock inscriptions: to lower right of the left siren: σιλετον. Above the left lion's back: λεονο, retr. Below his belly: λι̣ε(ο)(σ), retr. Above and to right of the right lion: σοιρο, retr. Below his belly: ζλει, retr.{2}. To left of the right siren's stomach: Σιρεν (ε)ιμι{3}. Body: to right of Odysseus' legs (he faces left), not facing him: Ολυτ[τ]ευς, retr. Similar for Achilles (who faces right): Αχιλ[λ]ευς. In front of the left-facing Thetis' face, facing her: Θετις, retr. Similar for the first Nereid: Ποντι(α){4}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} may be by the same hand as the name piece, Vienna 3613 [ex Oest. Mus. 220] (ABV). {2} or σλει, with reversed sigma? {3} the second epsilon = tailed digamma. {4} see Beazley in AJA: he did not see a final letter; if there is one, he prefers Ποντια (Newton and Birch, Report on the Campana Collection 9) to Johansen's Ποντις. Recent publications show that the alpha is there, though misshapen.
