  • CAVI Collection: Vienna, Kunsthistorisches Museum 3723.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF neck amphora. Near Kleophrades Painter{1}. Late sixth. Earliest period (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: A: a boxer. B: sn athlete scraping himself.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Faint and fragmentary: nonsense: A: to left of the boxer: πε. On the right: εσ. B: to left of the athlete: six imitation(?) letters beginning with ε. At right: ε(ο)(χ){2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley says `perhaps'. Richter in AJA thought perhaps by the very earliest Kleophrades Painter, before his style was formed. {2} after the dr. in A.E.M.; clearly poor. Richter in ARFV says: formerly read as : and Ep....... e......., i.e., two signatures by Epiktetos. Den Tex informed Richter that Wilhelm and others considered the letters meaningless.
  • CAVI Comments: Ex Oest. Mus., inv. 1091. Formerly attributed to Epiktetos on the basis of a reading of the inscriptions (Klein (1887), 108/26, Hoppin, Pfuhl, and VA (1918), 28/50). Kraiker disagreed. V.Pol. (1928), 15, n. 3: painted by Epiktetos under the influence of Euthymides. Later Beazley connected it with the Kleophrades Painter, while Richter attributed it to the painter himself. Cf. Robertson (1992), 66, on the `Epiktetos' signatures.
