  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. Acr. i, 607.+
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of BF dinos. From Athens. Lydos. Second quarter sixth. Shortly before 550 (Dev. 43).
  • CAVI Subject: Gigantomachy.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the rim, Gr.: [hο δεινα εποιε]σεν [:]{1}. hο Λυδος :{1}. ε[γ]ραφ̣σ̣[εν]. Body: Αριστα[ιος]. hεφ[αιστος]. Αφροδιτε. Μιμος, retr. Διον̣[υσος], retr. --].ΟΑΘ[--, a giant. hερμες. Περιχθο̣|νιος, end-boustr. Αθ̣[ος(?)]. --].δαμας, Gr. on BG ground, retr., end-boustr.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the punctuation is four-stroke; perhaps a trace of the first interpoint.
  • CAVI Comments: Two frs. added by Karouzou. - For details of the signature, and the possibility that the potter's name was also Lydos, see AttScr. A dedicatory inscription is unlikely, cf. the reference in AttScr (1990), 30 n. 1. I follow Fig. 26 and Rumpf, pl. 18. Cohen follows Moore in reading: [hο Λυδος : εποιε]σεν : hο Λυδος : ε[γ]ραφσεν. Moore: carefully planned, taking up no more than 1/2 circle and appearing above gods' heads. According to her, the Gr. dedication my have been on the other 1/2 circle. -Aristaios is written close to the wrong person, according to Moore. Μιμος for Μιμας?, cf.Dev. 43. The theta in --].ΟΑΘ[-- is presumably dotted. For Athos, see Moore 95, n. 133. [hοπλα̣]δαμας or [Θεο?]δαμας.(?) The writing continues the style of Sophilos.
