  • CAVI Collection: Naples 3240.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF volute krater (Pronomos Vase). From Ruvo. Pronomos Painter. Late fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Dionysus and the cast of a satyr play (so ARV[2]). B: Dionysus and Ariadne with satyrs and maenads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Διονυσ(ο)ς{1}. Ιμερος. Ηρακλης. Chorus members: Ευνικος. Δωροθεος. Ευαγων. Nικ(ο)μαχος{1}. Χαριας. Nικολεο{η}ς. Διων. Φιλινος. Καλλιας. Two of the 11 choreutae are not inscribed. Poet: Δημητριος. Flute player: Προνομος. Lyre player: Χαρινος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} omicron is a half circle in Διονυσ(ο)ς; it resembles a narrow pi with equal bars in Nικ(ο)μαχος.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley accepts Prott's suggestion that the satyr play may have been a Hermione; but see Buschor in FR; further Trendall and Webster. Pronomos of Thebes is well known: Paus. 4.27 and 9.12, etc. The others are unknown. Several figures are not named. Note cursive epsilon, pi with equal verticals and omega in two lines. On the beginning of cursive letters in this period see Buschor in FR, p. 146.
