  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 15,499.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of BF dinos. From Pharsalos. Sophilos. Second quarter sixth. 580-570 (?).
  • CAVI Subject: Funeral games for Patroclus.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: In red: Above backs of horses on left: --]ι̣ος. Between the horses and the grandstand a right, diagonally down, and in two lines: Σοφ[ι]λος :* μ(ε)γραφσεν | Πατροϙλυς :* ατλα{1}. Both retr. To right of upper grandstand: Ἀχιλ[λ]ες, retr.{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley reads the iota of Sophilos, which I do not see in the photos, and wrongly renders the koppa as a kappa. The first epsilon added later. Threatte (1980), 22 and 260 wrongly reads Πατροκλυς with kappa (the ending explained as upsilon for ου, i.e. genit. Πατροκλους). {2} Threatte (1996), 235-36.
