  • CAVI Collection: Cleveland 26.242.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fragmentary RF cup. From Gela. Unattributed{1}; Eucharides Painter (Langridge). First quarter fifth. 490-480 (Boulter).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: crouching warrior sacrificing a ram. Ext.: plain.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: around the warrior, starting at lower left: Χαι[ρ]ιας κα[λος]{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley says that the drapery recalls the Eucharides Painter; but the popular Chairias kalos is of the late sixth century: this must be Chairias II (ARV[2] 1571, top). Langridge lists the vase as by the Eucharides Painter and refers me to CVA, Cleveland. {2} Beazley gives the rho as extant, but I did not see it and CVA does not have it.
