  • AVI Record Number: 6808
  • CAVI Collection: Philadelphia, University Museum 5399.
  • CAVI Lemma: RF amphora. From Vulci. Psiax. Menon, potter. Last quarter sixth. 520-510.
  • CAVI Subject: A: Apollo with a lyre between Leto and Artemis. B: a youth leading two horses.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: All inscriptions Grr.: A: to Leto's lower right: Λετος̣. Similar: Απολ[λ]ονος. Similar: Αρτεμιδος. B: to left of the horses: Σκονθον{1}. To the horses' lower right: Πι[..]ι̣ο(.). To left of the warrior's face: Πυρες{2}. On the foot profile, also Gr.: Μενον εποιεσεν{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Σκονθον is my reading; Σχονθον, Beazley in JHS, wrongly. No doubt miswritten for Χσανθος (a horse name, see Immerwahr (1971) [[see especially CAVI 8076]]). The name of the other horse is not recoverable. {2} Πυρες: see Anth. Pal. 13.13 and early examples cited in Immerwahr (1971); cf. LGPN ii. Probably not Πυρ[ρ]ες, although that occurs in PA 12,497 (fourth cent.). For earlier readings, see Robinson in AJA. {3} The incision is more deeply cut, which in Immerwahr (1971) made me think of incision after firing and a different hand; but see now AttScr (1990), 58 n. 6 and Threatte (1996), 260.
  • CAVI Comments: The signature is under side A, I think pretty well centered.
  • CAVI Number: 6808
