  • CAVI Collection: New York 22.139.11.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF bell krater. Cassel Painter. Third quarter fifth. Ca. 440.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Cadmus and the snake. B: Hermes and Athena.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: above Cadmus' head and on its right: καλος (all letters are idiosyncratic){1}. To left of Harmonia's face, at some distance: καλη(.), retr.{2}. Under the foot: Gr. τι[μα] in the Cypriote syllabary.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the letters could also be interpreted as [Κ]αδμος, although I thought this unlikely when I saw the vase. The writing seems almost cursive. {2} there is the beginning of a diagonal stroke after καλη. There is also a dot after the alpha, which is probably accidental.
