  • CAVI Collection: London E 76.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Briseis Painter. First quarter fifth. Ca. 480. 485-480 (Williams).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: conversation of a seated old man and a bearded man. A: Briseis led away from Achilles. B: Briseis brought to Agamemnon.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: around the medaillon: γυιοσ κιοσ υισι{1}. A: between the heads, very widely spaced, on the left side of the scene: γυιοσυ{2}. B: similar but stretching over the whole scene: γυιοσυιοσκι{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the last letter from BM Cat.; I did not see it. CVA reads as one: γυιοσκιοσυισ (CVA also does not read the final iota). {2} after BM Cat. γυιοσλ, CVA. At right, Achilles' tent interferes. {3} after BM Cat. γυιουιοσκι, my note from CVA.
  • CAVI Comments: = 1843.11-3.92. Hartwig attributed the cup to his `Meister mit dem Kahlkopf'. B is interpreted by Williams as Briseis being taken out of Agamemnon's tent to be returned to Achilles, but Kossatz-Deissmann in LIMC iv, s.v. Briseis, pp. 157-66, esp. 166, keeps the old interpretation that she is brought to Agamemnon. Cf. also Schefold (1981), 181-82. Shapiro thinks the two elders on the Int. are discussing the Briseis affair, cf. the elders on B. His phs. show the location of the letters only; they are widely spaced, especially on B. For the type of nonsense inscription, For the type of nonsense inscription, see Beazley (1914), 194, n. 13. Serbeti reads: γυιοσκιοσλισ. γυιολιοσκι. γυιοσ. Gerhard read: Λυκος καλος (cf. s., 41 n. 167).
