  • AVI Record Number: 5710
  • CAVI Collection: New York 56.171.13.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF amphora. From Orvieto. Group E. Third quarter sixth. Ca. 540 (Bothmer).
  • CAVI Subject: A: a warrior. B: a victorious athlete carrying a tripod.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: A: to right of the warrior, vertically in a straight line and not facing him: δυ' ὀβελὸ καὶ μἔθιγες, retr.{1}. [Under the foot, Gr.(?)]: ΗΜ, with presumably Ionic eta{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Amyx, interpreting it as the price of the vase. Differently Beazley (see ABV and cf. Kretschmer 91): δυ' ὀβελὸ καὶ με̅̀ θίγε̅⟨ι⟩ς, "two obols - and hands off." So also Bothmer apud Blatter. {2} probably not for ημιδραχμη, as we are at the beginning of the monetary system (Johnston).
  • CAVI Comments: Ex San Simeon, Hearst 9938. Johnston discusses the painted inscription and denies that the two obols are the price of the vase: the inscription may not refer to the vase and the obol may not yet have been in existence. Attic alphabet.
