  • CAVI Collection: Paris, Louvre G 115.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Capua. Douris. Kalliades, potter. First quarter fifth. 490-480. 485-480 (Simon (1969); Shapiro){1}.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Eos with the body of Memnon. A: Menelaus fighting Paris. B: Ajax fighting Hector.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: along the left margin, facing in: (ϝ(?))ενεμεκνερινε{2}. Parallel, but also facing in: hερμογενες | καλος{3}. Above Eos' head: hεος : Δορις | εγραφσεν{3}. To right, i.e., below, the face of Memnon, in three lines filling all the space, non-stoich.: Μεμλον, for Μεμνον, and Καλ[λ]ιαδες | εποιεσεν. Ext.: the inscriptions horizontal, near the margin. A: between the woman at left and the back of Menelaus' head: Μενελεος, retr. To left of Paris' face: Αλεχσανδρος, retr. To left of Artemis' face: Αρτεμις, retr. B: to right of Athena's head: Αθε[ν]αι|α{4}. To right of Ajax' head: Αιας. To right of Hector (who faces left): hεκλορ, for hεκτορ. To right of Apollo (who also faces left): Απο{ο}λλον{5}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Middle (B.-O.). {2} I do not know what the first letter of the mystery word is, but I doubt its being a digamma; I think the word is not nonsense, but badly miswritten. {3} is stoich. intended in these two inscriptions? Δορις and εγραφσεν are lined up. {4} the final alpha is placed under the first. {5} this reading is taken from the photo, fig. 144, in Arias–Hirmer–Shefton (1962) and needs to be verified; the doubling of omicron is due to an intervening tendril; the last letter, for similar reasons, is written under the second lambda.
