much restored, and the shape impossible, but bits of it seem right, and Brygan. (2) Naples 2961 (Museo Borbonico, v, Pl. 20, 1; Panofka, Trinkhörner, Pl. 2, 1-2). Not far from the Brygan group.1

23. 10.200 FRAGMENT OF KYLIX Komast vomiting PLATE IX and FIGURE 21

Greatest length, 0.115 m.; diameter of foot, 0.09 m. The central portion of the bowl is preserved, together with the stem and most of the foot. Relief contours throughout. Red used for the komast's wreath, for the liquid streaming from his mouth, and for the inscription; thinned black paint for the hair on his body and for anatomical details within and without.

Ann. Rep. 1910, p. 63. Beazley, V.A., p. 91, fig. 59 (from a drawing by Frank Gearing). Hoppin, i, p. 127, no. 37. Beazley, Att. V., p. 179, no. 48.

Interior: within a simple interlocking maeander border, a bearded komast, wreathed, wearing a dotted himation with striped border, and holding a stick in his left hand, bends over a bowl into which he is vomiting. In the field [ΗΟ Π]ΑΙΣ [ΚΑΛΟΣ]. Lists of such figures are given by Hartwig in Meisterschalen, pp. 105 and 332, and in Strena Helbigiana, p. 113, note 2, to which Beazley adds the Apulian oinochoe, Göttingen 48 (Jacobsthal, Göttinger Vasen, p. 27 and Pl. 18).

Exterior: the left lower leg of a man followed by the advanced right leg of a second man, probably from a komos group. Fig. 20.2

About 490-480 B.C. By the Brygos painter.3

24. 10.202 FRAGMENT OF KYLIX Youth fluting PLATE IX

Length, 0.086 m. From a small kylix, probably with undecorated exterior. Relief contours throughout. Brown used for the youth's whiskers, for his neck-muscle, and for some inner markings on his arm, though these are hard to distinguish from the lines of the preliminary sketch.

Ann. Rep. 1910, p. 63. Beazley, V.A., p. 91. Hoppin, i, p. 128, no. 38. Beazley, Att. V., p. 179, no. 46.

The upper part of a youthful komast, wearing a dotted himation with striped border, leaning forward on a knotted stick propped against his arm-pit, playing the flute. A bit of the border appearing at the lower end of the fragment shows that the picture was of about the size of those on no. 26 and no. 27, Pl. X (Boston 10.197 and Boston 13.95), and consequently that there was no room for a second figure.

About 490-480 B.C. By the Brygos painter. Figures similarly leaning on sticks are common among his works; e.g. the trainer on side A of the skyphos, no. 18, Pl. VII (Boston 10.176), and the youth on the reverse of the amphora, no. 19, Pl. VIII (Boston 26.61). Flute-players in this pose in komos scenes by the painter are generally intent upon a neighbouring dancing figure whom they are stimulating with their music, as for example on the cup in Orvieto, Hartwig, Meisterschalen, Pl. XXXVI, 2. For other single figures of flutists on interiors of Brygan cups see British Museum London E 71, A.Z. 1870, Pl. 39, and Yale 164, Baur, The Stoddard Collection, Pl. XIV ('manner of the Brygos painter', Beazley, Att. V., p. 183, no. 7).4

ARV, p. 250, no. 68; ARV2, p. 376, no. 82; S. Buluç, AJA 70 (1966), p. 369; Wegner 1973, pp. 134-135.

25. 95.57 PART OF HANDLE OF KYLIX Signature of Brygos PLATE IX

Length, 0.08 m. In two pieces, joined. Burnt to a yellowish grey.

From the Athenian Acropolis. Formerly in the van Branteghem collection. Ann. Rep. 1895, p. 21, no. 34. Collection van Branteghem, no. 74, with facsimile of inscription. Hartwig, Meisterschalen, p. 371, fig. 50, accurate full-size drawing. Tonks, Brygos, p. 105, no. 9. Beazley, V.A., p. 92. Hoppin, i, p. 107, no. 1.

The signature of the potter Brygos, ΒΡΥΓΟΣ : ΕΠΟΙΕΣΕΝ is well preserved except for the initial Β and the Π, which are incomplete. It has been suggested that the handle might belong to the fragmentary cup from the Acropolis in the style of the Brygos painter, with Odysseus and Circe, Langlotz, Vasen von der Akropolis, ii, p. 24, Pls. 17,

1 (From Addenda to Part I) No. 22. ARV. p. 255, Brygos Painter no. 143. Hirth Formenschatz 1908, 85; Richter and Milne fig. 178; Chase Guide p. 70. I take the opportunity of correcting an error in Minto Populonia pl. 53, 5 with pp. 191-2. Two fragments are figured there with the statement that I attribute them to Douris. Pl. 53, 5a is by the Brygos Painter, and is one of the two fragments composing ARV. p. 247 no. 17; the other fragment, unpublished, has, on one half of the exterior, the upper parts of a satyr to left and of a satyr dancing to right. Pl. 53, 5b in Populonia is not by the Brygos Painter: it is the fragment assigned to Douris in ARV. p. 291 no. 187.

2 (From Addenda to Parts I and II) P. 23, no. 23: in the text, for 'Fig. 20' read 'Fig. 21'. The fragment 10.200 has now been augmented by a small one which joins it and has been presented to the Museum: see Suppl. Pl. 20, 1-2.

3 (From Addenda to Part I) No. 23. ARV. p. 249, Brygos Painter no. 40. Last line but one: for 'fig. 20' read 'fig. 21'.

4 (From Addenda to Part I) No. 24. ARV. p. 250, Brygos Painter no. 68.
