  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Cab. Méd. 222.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF neck amphora. From Vulci. Amasis Painter. Amasis, potter. Ca. 540.
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: A-B: battle. Body: A: Athena and Poseidon. B: Dionysus and two maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of (behind) Poseidon's head: Ποσειδον{1}. Between the figures, along Poseidon's trident: Αμασις v. μεποιεσεν. B: Above Dionysus' head: Διονυσος. Continuing on the same line, after a vacat: Αμασις vac. μεποιεσεν. The spacing is even.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} CVA gives Αθεναια behind her head, but that must have been a restoration, as this part is missing. For the reading of Ποσειδον, see Threatte (1996), 127 (R. Guy attests that the sigma is certain: Shapiro by letter to Threatte).
  • CAVI Comments: For the potter Amasis, see H. Mommsen (1997), 17-34.
