  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 15,375.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF aryballos. From Athens, Stadium Street (Royal Stables). Douris. Douris, potter. Ca. 480. Period 3 (ARV[2], p. 426). Ca. 490 (Beazley (1927–8)).
  • CAVI Subject: Two Erotes flying from either side toward a boy fleeing to right; that on the left carries a whip.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the shoulder, above the left Eros, left-aligned horizontal two-liner, Gr.:{1}. Δορις | εποιεσεν. Starting to right of the handle, in a large double curved above the wing of the left Eros and to right of his head, Gr. [so stated in Delt., p. 108]: Ασοποδορω hε λεγυθος. Probably written after the signature, but by the same hand: I do not know whether before or after firing, but it clearly goes through the glaze. Robertson (1992), says of the second inscriptin that it is `painted before firing'. The publication of the vase in Delt. 11 (1927-28) 91-110, states on p. 108 that the owner's inscription is incised; I cannot find a statement there about the signature. Tiverios calls the vase a bespoken piece.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} see Cohen: both inscriptions are Grr. (before firing?); Beazley in ARV[2] does not mention this. The inscriptions look like Grr., but this fact is not mentioned by B.-O, although on p. 45 she says that the inscriptions were done before firing.
