  • AVI Web:
  • AVI Record Number: 5285
  • CAVI Collection: Munich 2421.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF hydria. From Vulci. Phintias. Last quarter sixth. 510-500. Ca. 510 (Lullies).
  • CAVI Subject: Shoulder: symposium of two reclining hetaerae playing kottabos. Body: music lesson.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Shoulder: on the far left: καλοι{1}. To right of left hetaera's open mouth: (σ)οι(2) τεν(δ)ι. On the far right: Ευθυμι(δ)ει. I.e.: σοὶ τηνδί, Ευθυμίδῃ καλῷ, sc. λατάσσω. Body: on the far left, facing the margin: ναιζον{3}. To right of a bearded onlooker: [Δ]εμετριο(ς). To right of a seated youth (pupil, not a boy) with his lyre, the first four letters retr. and not facing: Ευτυμιδες, for Ευθυμιδες. In front of a standing boy, the first three letters and the lambda retr. and not facing: Τλεμπ̣ο(λ)εμος{4}. Behind the bearded teacher (who also plays the lyre): Σμικυθος{5}. Under the foot, Gr.: XV : ΙΛ : and ΛΗ [[lig.]]. Also Etruscan ΜΕ, retr.{6}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the καλο̃ι (dat.) is read καλοί by Furtw�ngler and is not by him (nor by Beazley in ARV[2]) connected with the rest of the inscription, but Hauser in FR ii, 336 reads the dat. {2} the sigma is quite unclear, but apparently not a tau; Beazley also reads σοι. {3} ναί, ζο̃ν, Furtw�ngler, equivalent of καλος; but it is written near a bearded man. Klein read Σοζιας (for Σοσιας), but this was met with Hartwig's disapproval. Perhaps nonsense. {4} Parallels: see ARV[2] 1611 and 1699. {5} see ARV[2] 1608. {6} See Johnston (1979), 152/2F,34 and Hackl (1909), 421; facs. FR ii, 66, fig. 29.
  • CAVI Comments: Lullies' readings: ναί, ζῶν, `wie er leibt und lebt'. καλο̃ι σοὶ τενδὶ Εὐθυμίδει, sc. λατάσσω, `Dir, dem sch�nen Euthymides, schleudere ich diese Neige'. The first four letters of Ευ(.)υμιδες are upside down in the facs.; the third letter is in a break and shows only a corner, but Lullies transcribes: Ευθυμιδες. In Τλεμπολεμος the first two letters and the lambda are upside down. [Δ]εμετριος. Lullies, p. 18, discusses Smikythos: he is here the teacher, not a kalos. Cf. also the New York psykter by Oltos and the Euthymides kalpis in Bonn: in all these the name is near a musician and Lullies thinks Smikythos may have been a famous musician at the time. [But these are not the only occurrences.] Apparently all sigmas are reversed except in the kottabos inscription where the sigma is unclear.
