12. 10.214 FRAGMENT OF KYLIX Youth at laver PLATE III

Greatest length, 0.072 m. From the centre of a small kylix with stem moulded at the junction with the (missing) foot. Relief contours throughout, except for lips. Red used for the wreath and the inscription.

From Corneto. Bull. M.F.A. ix, 1911, p. 54. From a sketch by Hartwig, Sudhoff, Aus dem antiken Badewesen, ii, p. 37.

A nude youth, wreathed, bending over a louterion set on a low column with Ionic capital. He has plunged his right hand into it to test the temperature of the water, while with a small jug in his left hand he is dipping up more water from a basin on the ground. The ground line is reserved; and the picture is bordered by a reserved circle. In the field at right, three letters of an inscription, probably [Π]ΑΙΣ. Only the alpha is completely preserved.

510-500 B.C. Beazley attributes the fragment to the Euergides painter, and compares the cup in Tübingen, Watzinger, Griechische Vasen in Tübingen, Tübingen E 41, Pl. 21, which is by the same hand.1
