  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 1732.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF oinochoe. From Vulci. Lydos (?), or a close imitation (Para. 48). Cholchos (Kolchos), potter. Ca. 540. Late, mannered (Beazley, ABV).
  • CAVI Subject: Heracles and Cycnus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of Nereus: hαλιος γερον. Below: Χολχος | μεποιεσεν. Ιολ[αος] or [-εος]. [Ποσ]ειδον. Αθ[ε]ναια. hερακλες. Very small: (Κ)υκ(ν)ος. Α[ρ]ες, retr. To left of charioteer: Φολος, retr. ΗΟΚΜ....Σ̣ (name of horse). Another horse: [--]γορα or [--]γορα[ς]. [Α]πολ[λ]ον. Διονυσος, retr.
  • CAVI Comments: Berlin East. A trick vase, see ABV 685. Furtw. read Φο[β]ος for the name of the charioteer (and this was accepted by Beazley in Proc.), but the lambda is clear in a photo. Φολος is given in Pape as the name of a son of Silenus killed by Heracles. For the Kyknos story see Shapiro, pp. 64 n. 159 and 115. Zeus seems to appears in the scene. Tiverios 85-86 reaffirms the attribution to Lydos. The vase is discussed also by Shapiro (1984), 525 and n. 25, pl. 66, fig. 2 (dr. after AJA 26 (1922) 181 (v. small)).
