  • CAVI Collection: New York 28.167.
  • CAVI Lemma: WG bobbin. From Athens (near). Penthesilea Painter. Second quarter fifth. 460-450.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Zephyrus and Hyacinthus. B: Nike and a boy victor{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Along the margin, starting above Hyacinthus' head: hο [πα]ις καλος{2}. B: behind Nike's legs, a horizontal two-liner, roughly stoich.: hο παις | καλος. On the boy's diadem: nonsense: λλδε.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} H.R.W. Smith, AJA 41 (1917) 343: surely Eros rather than Zephyros. So also Diepolder (1936). {2} so R-H, text, but the photo shows traces of all letters: hο π̣α̣ι̣ς̣ κ̣αλος.
  • CAVI Comments: B is interpreted by Richter as Eos and Cephalus (rejected by Diepolder (1936), 16, n. 40). Mixed alphabet (Ionic except for heta).
