  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. From Nola. Villa Giulia Painter. Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Hermes giving the infant Dionysus to the nymphs of Nysa. B: athlete and trainers.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: [--]θυς, i.e., [Τε]θυς(?){1}. hερμες [[h(ε)]]. Διωνυσως, for Διονυσος. Μαινας.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} K.-D. suggests that [Με]θυσ[ε] is another possibility. {2} Threatte (1980) states that omega is used for both ω and ο; but I do not see why we should here assume the epic form of Dionysus.
