  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 2273.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Ambrosios Painter. Last quarter sixth. 510-500.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Hephaestus (bearded) in a winged chair, with double axe and kantharos{1}. Ext.: plain.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: starting to left of his head: Κεφι[.]τος κα[λ]ος.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Beazley; Triptolemos (wrongly), Furtw. - Matheson (1994), 351: Hephaestus giving a test drive to the winged chair he made for Dionysus. A.B. Cook (1914–40), i, 216: identifies the `hammer' carried by H. as a double axe and the figure as Dionysus. Beazley, Boardman (1975), fig. 120, Simon (1969), 223, fig. 209, and Matheson all prefer Hephaestus.
  • CAVI Comments: The photo shows no letter(s) in an area of 1-2 letter spaces between iota and tau, although the surface seems to be preserved; the other letters are very clear. Furtw. read Κεφι[σ]ιος (sic) κα[λ]ος, and this is accepted by Neugebauer. Beazley, in ARV[2], says: "The first letter is a poor kappa, and might be a poorer H; if so, hεφι[σ]τος κα[λ]ος(?)". I.e.: hεφ[α]ι[σ]τος, but I think the word is clearly miswritten, perhaps for Κεφισιος, but note that Beazley does not list this kalos-name. The name occurs later on Bologna PU 358, AttScr (1990), no. 677.
