  • CAVI Collection: Rome, Vatican 16,541.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Oedipus Painter{1}. Python, potter. First quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Oedipus and the sphinx. A-B: satyrs.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: to the upper right of Oedipus' head, ending over the sphinx's head: Οιδιποδες. To left of the sphinx' mouth: [κ]αι τρι[], retr.{2}. R. Guy tells me that on the exterior are inscriptions in the preliminary sketch which were not copied on the glaze.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} close to late Douris. {2} there is room for only one letter before the face of Oedipus; hence τρι[α].
  • CAVI Comments: Oedipus' mouth is slightly open. For the words of the sphinx see Beazley in AJA. An Etruscan cup, Paris, Musée Rodin 980, copies the exterior of this cup; see ARV[2]. Hoffmann (1997), 80-82, fig. 41 (dr. [probably after Hartwig]). H. speculates much on a secondary meaning of `τρια' as spoken by the sphinx.
