  • CAVI Collection: Berlin inv. 3151.
  • CAVI Lemma: BF cup (footless, with merrythought handles). From Aegina. Unattributed. Ergotimos, potter. Mid-sixth. Ca. 560 (Shapiro).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: Heracles and the Lion. A: Capture of Silenus: Silenus prisoner between two servants of Midas. B: komos (two bearded komasts and a young one fluting).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: at left: hερακλες. A: to right of the left-hand servant's forehead: θ̣ερ[ε]υται{1}. Below the satyr's lowered right hand, to right of his legs: Σιλενος{2}. To right of the right-hand servant's upper body: Ορειος. B: Εργοτιμος εποιεσεν. Χαριδεμος. Nεκαυλος. Ε[ν]πεδοκρα̣τες.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Fränkel has Θερυτα[--], no doubt as a personal name. She is following Kretschmer who rejects the reading θερ[ε]υται and suggests a proper name, parallel to Ορειος: Θερυτα(ς), the sigma miswritten as a clear iota, the name chosen with reference to the θηρα του Σιληνου (Paus. i.4,5). I prefer the older reading. {2} so Fränkel and K.-D.. {3} For Nεκαυλος = Nικαυλος see also Jajobsthal, Ornamente 114 n. 193. U 4. 575-. Threatte (1980), 138 says `probably', `unless the name is from νεικος'.
