  • CAVI Collection: Boston 01.8079.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF lekythos. From Gela. Pan Painter. Second quarter fifth. 470-460. Late (Beazley).
  • CAVI Subject: Eros flying and catching a fawn.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To right of his face: καλε. Under the foot, Gr.: ΣΟ [[lig.]]. Johnston (1979), 86/33A 20.
  • CAVI Comments: Beazley (in CB) says the fawn is male; hence the καλε does not refer to it. Could this be vocative: καλε (short e)(?). The Gr.: the omicron is attached to the tip of the three-stroke sigma (CB prints the ligature the other way round, with the sigma on top, perhaps correctly); Johnston's rendering seems wrong.
