  • CAVI Lemma: RF stemmed dish. Unattributed{1}. 530-520. Very early RF (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Athena and a giant.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: from Athena's head: [Α](θ)εναας. From the giant's head: Ενκελαδος. The inscriptions reserved and facing out.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} "The potter work makes one think of early Nikosthenes; the drawing, in some points, of early Psiax." (ARV[2]). Mertens attributes the vase to the circle of Psiax, but not to self.
  • CAVI Comments: The outward facing of both inscriptions may be caused by the desire to avoid retr. Theta lacks the dot.
  • CAVI Number: 6686
