  • AVI Record Number: 3584
  • CAVI Collection: Florence 70,993.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF Tyrrhenian neck amphora. From Pescia Romana. Prometheus Painter (Bothmer). Second quarter sixth. 560-550. Middle period (Kluiver).
  • CAVI Subject: A: Achilles and Hector fighting over the body of Troilos. At extreme left, Achilles facing right; tumulus (Kretschmer calls it a `halbkugelformigen Altar') and traces I cannot read in the ph., no doubt including Troilos; at right, five warriors advance to left. B: four horsemen racing.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: Αχιλ[λ]ευς. Τροιλος, retr. hεκτορ, retr. Αινεας, retr. Αγενορ, retr. Αλε[χ]σανδρος, retr.{1}. Χαλκας, retr.{2}. Ιφις{3}. The ph. shows also another additional name. B: [...]{4}. hιπ[π]ιας. [Kr. prints the iota as :*.] {5}. [Χαι]ρια̣ς{6}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Ruijgh apud K. reads: Αλεσ[σ]ανδρος, not Αλε[χ]σανδρος. {2} found also on Copenhagen 15,070 (no. 21 in K.), where Ruijgh suggests Χαλκας for Καλχας with a query [see also Pape s.v. Καλχας: Eustathius mentions the variant Χαλκας for the seer]? This and the next name are not read by Kretschmer. {3} [A woman,] mentioned in the Iliad 9.667. {4} so K.; not mentioned by Kretschmer; this should be under the first horseman. So what about the fourth? {5} under the second horseman, Kretschmer. {6} under the third horseman, Kretschmer who reads: [Χ]α[ι]ριας.
