  • CAVI Collection: London E 16.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF cup. From Vulci. Oltos. Last quarter sixth. 520-510.
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: boy lifting a hydria. A: departure of Ajax, with a chariot. B: Dionysus with maenads and satyrs.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: in a circle, starting to left of the youth's forehead and facing out: Μεμνον καλος. A: above the old man: [1-2](.)ρ(α)λος{1}. Αιας{2}. Between Ajax' legs: χ(α)τσο, the σο perhaps separate. To right of a woman's face: ΑΤΟΛ(Ε). Above a warrior: Μεμ̣[μ]νον and καλος. αυκ, complete(2)? B: ΕΛΑ is clear once. Other inscriptions are similar, all short.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} C. Smith suggests [Πα]ραλος, but Beazley in AJΑ says it is doubtful whether there was ever anything before the rho [see however my reading; I thought the first extant letter probably an iota]; Beazley rightly suggests that the inscription may be meaningless. Smith himself suggests that the old man is Telamon. {2} the location not noted by me.
  • CAVI Comments: Hard to read. Extremely sloppy writing; it is hard to tell what is sense and what is nonsense. Lissarrague says that the vase has Αιας καλος, but that is not what I read.
