  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 2278.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Sosias Painter (Beazley); Euthymides (Ohly-Dumm){1}. Last quarter sixth. 510-500.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Achilles tending Patroclus. A-B: Heracles entering Olympus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: Πατροκλος, retr. Αχ[ι]λλευς(?). A: h[εβε], retr. Αρ̣[ες], retr. Ἀφ[ροδιτε], retr. B: A vertical stroke reported by Furtw., but not in FR. καλο(ς), retr. (h)οραι, retr. Both inscriptions near the Horae. Ἀοφιτριτ(ε), retr. (belongs on A). hεστια, retr. hερμες, retr. Αρτεμις, retr. (Misapplied to Apollo according to F. Hauser). Heracles says: (Ζ)ευ φιλε, retr. On the foot profile, in BG: Σοσιας εποιεσεν.
  • CAVI Comments: Αχ[ι]λλευς, Furtw. It could however be that the first lambda is a miswritten iota, since Euthymides (if the vase is his) does not usually double consonants.(2). Hauser explains the kalos by the similarity of hοραι to hο παις; the final sigma sideways, as often among the Pioneers. Αοφιτριτε for Ἀνφιτριτε: the error due perhaps to the fact that this name belongs on A where we have Αφ[ροδιτε]. The epsilon of the former is smudged. Zeta turned on its side. - Threatte (1980), 487, suggests that the omicron in Α{ο}[ν]φιτριτε may be a false start for the phi in that name. - For the attributions see Robertson's discussion. Ohly-Dumm (1984) attributed to Euthymides, not to the Kleophrades Painter as R. wrongly asserted in Stele (1978) 128 n. 21. R. in Robertson (1992), attributes to very early Kleophrades Painter. - Shapiro discusses the name Aphrodite instead of Amphitrite, which occurs also on London B 254; and winged Hebe, the future bride of Heracles: h[-]. - Addendum: M. Boss in Euphronios und seine Zeit (Colloquium Berlin 19-20 April 1991) 87ff.: the preliminary sketch on this vase differs greatly from Euphronios or any other Pioneer and thus the vase should be attributed to a different painter who ought not to be connected with the Pioneers. [This might suit the problem of Achilles' name, but is it not also possible that the preliminary sketch might be put on by a person other than the eventual painter?] � E] {1} Sosias potter. Hartwig attributed to Peithinos (Hartwig (1893), 241ff.); Beazley originally to Euphronios (VA (1918), 31/12, cf. also Hauser in FR iii, 21, near E.); Beazley later, to Sosias Painter, following Buschor (cf. GVM (1921) 164), ARV[1] 21/1. Ohly-Dumm (1984). M. Robertson earlier to unnamed painter very close to Euphronios (HGA 228), later, to early Kleophrades Painter (Robertson (1992), 59). Wehgartner is inclined to consider Sosias potter and painter; for the lettering of the signature see Berlin 2315. {2} However, I. Wehgartner kindly procured for me a detailed photo of the head of Achilles with part of the inscription. It shows very clearly: |λλευ|, with the two lambdas quite different from each other: the first is upright Attic lambda with a slightly curved short stroke (the top of this letter is off the picture, but I do not believe that it was intended for an iota); the second is almost like a Latin L (the short hasta is raised just a little bit; also it is very long - much longer than the other lambda's bar). E] {1} Sosias potter. Kleophrades Painter, very early (Robertson). {2} Threatte (1980), 487, suggests that the omicron in Α{ο}[ν]φιτριτε may be a false start for the phi in that name.
