  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 851.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF kantharos. From Vulci. Eretria Painter. Epigenes, potter. Third quarter fifth. 435-430 (Lezzi-Hafter).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Patroclus and Antilochus departing from Nestor and Thetis. B: Achilles and Ukalegon departing from Agamemnon and Kymothea (a Nereid).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Nεσστ[ορ]. Αντ[ι]λοχος{1}. Πατροκλος{2}. Between Patroclus and Thetis, at mid-height, a horizontal left-aligned non-stoich. two-liner: Επιγενες | εποεσε{3}. (Θ)ετ[ις]{4}. [Αγ]αμ[ε]μνον{5}. B: To right of back of head: Αχιλλευς. Similar: Κυμο(θ)εα{6}. [Ο]υκαλε[γ]ον{7}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so de Ridder's text; the facs. has Αντλοχος. L.-H. reads Αντιλοχος. {2} so the text; Πατροκλς, facs. {3} complete (Beazley). Ph. of signature: L.-H., Eret., pl. 184,B; dr.: fig. 96,b. {4} the theta lacks the dot in the facs. Θετις, L.-H. {5} L.-H., Eret. 291 n. 566: Ridder (1902), ii, 502 says this inscription is false; L.-H. notes that it is in part above the head rather than beside it (as are the other inscriptions), but apparently she accepts it. {6} the theta lacks the dot in the facs. For Κυματοθεα(?). {7} Oukalegon in Iliad 3.146f. is a wise man (an old Trojan), which he is hardly here (L.-H., who thinks it odd here). υκαλεον, de Ridder who notes the previous restoration [Ο]υκαλε[γ]ον (cf. Il. 3.148), but is doubtful because of the spacing. Cf. also Malibu L.87.AE.120, where Oukalegon is a satyr.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Luynes and Basseggio. Regular departure scenes made mythological by the inscriptions. Rare representations of events before the Trojan Wars. The readings are uncertain. Mixed alphabet: Ionic gamma and lambda; three- and four-stroke sigma.
