  • CAVI Collection: Eleusis 1244.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF skyphos. From Eleusis. Unattributed. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 430 (Beazley, Edwards).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Rape of Persephone: Hades abducting Kore in a chariot; at left, two women; at right, Hermes and another figure; behind the horses, another female figure (Demeter? Hartwig); above the horses' heads, Eros with a wreath and a torch. B: not preserved unless the fr. of Hartwig's p. 379 belongs there.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to Eros' left, at head- and shoulder-height, facing him: Ερος, retr. Below the bottom margin, Gr.: left-aligned horizontal stoich. two-liner if the first sign is disregarded (as Hartwig does who considers it a false start): (.)ανθιπ[πη] | ανεθηκεν{1}. ^ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Hartwig's dr.: before the alpha of the name the ill. shows the `carat', but the text gives the reading: Ανθιππη ανεθηκε (without the final nu!).
  • CAVI Comments: The museum no. is given in Add.[2]. Neither Edwards nor Simon agree with my original reading from Hartwig: the photo shows: (.)α(ν)θιππη̣ | ανεθηκεν. The first letter is unclear in the ph.; it looks more like a reversed three-stroke sigma than a xi. My own observation agreed with the dr. (see below) in that I saw a sign ^. The first nu seems to lack the first stroke (= V), but that is probably because that stroke does not go all the way through to the clay. The dr. shows the first letter as a kind of carat: ^. The nu is shown complete. Can we read: (Ξ)ανθιππη̣ | ανεθηκεν or [Χ]σ̣ανθιππη̣? In both pictures the alpha of the anetheken is below the alpha of the name; this would support the reading Ανθιππη̣, ignoring the first sign. This seems also LGPN's opinion. - The Dip.: mixed alphabet with triangular rho and four-stroke sigma. The Gr.: Ionic alphabet, unless the first sign is a sigma. K.-D. gives the dedicator as Anthippe.
