I was able to complete this project thanks to the generous assistance of many people.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Didier Viviers, Rector of the Université
libre de Bruxelles (ULB), and to Laurent Bavay, Director of the CreA-Patrimoine. It
is during my stay in Brussels as a post-doctoral Fellow of the Ph. Wiener - M. Anspach
Fondation at ULB that I undertook the study of the Campana vases. Their support
made possible for me to complete this research.
I am most grateful to the Keepers of the Department of Antiquities of the Musées
royaux d’Art et d’Histoire du Cinquantenaire, to Eric Gubel and Cécile Evers for
suggesting that I study the Campana Collection in Brussels and to Natacha Massar
for her kindness and help during all the time of my work. I owe special thanks to John
Boardman, Donna Kurtz and Dyfri Williams for their advice and precious help, and
to Michele Benucci with whom I share a common interest in the Marquis Campana.
Many thanks are due to the staff of the MRAH-KMKG, especially to Isabella Rosati,
restorator at the Museum, for discussing conservation matters with me, and to Françoise
Roloux, archaeological illustrator at the Museum, for her drawings of the vases.
I am also happy to acknowledge the talent and expertise of Anja Stoll and Nathalie
Bloch, archaeological draughtswomen and infographists at the CreA-Patrimoine
(ULB), for their help in preparing the plates and the publication of the volume.
I am much indebted to my friends and colleagues Melanie Mendonça and Judith Toms:
they have corrected and improved the English version of the text with great patience
and care. Remaining mistakes are mine.
Athena Tsingarida deserves a special mention for her longtime friendship and
stimulating discussions.
Finally, I wish to thank my husband, Riccardo, for being so patient and supportive at
every stage of this work.

The Marquis Giovanni Pietro Campana (fig. 1) is

renowned for creating one of the most important
19th century collections of art in Rome, which was
dispersed after his fraudulent activity against the
Pontifical pawnshop, of which he was the director.1
The so-called Campana Museum was taken as
indemnity by the Pontifical State and from 1861
sold off. After the acquisitions made by the South
Kensington Museum (now the V&A) in London
and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, France acquired
a huge number of objects, which is today shared
between the Musée du Louvre and the French
provincial museums.2 The French acquisition
should have completed the sale, but it is clear that
several objects remained in Rome, so that further
acquisitions followed, among which were those made
by Belgium.3
At the beginning of the 20th century, the French
scholar, Salomon Reinach, affirmed that the purchase
by the Belgian government was fraudulent, since
“l’acquisition belge de 1862 est postérieure à la vente
faite à la France sans réserve ni retenue aucune”.4
Reinach also mentions “un volumineux dossier
Campana” given by the Belgian Département des
Beaux-Arts to Jean De Mot, Keeper of the Musées Fig. 1. Portrait of Giovanni Pietro Campana
Royaux d’Art et d’Histoire, who argued that the (after Cappelli-Salvagni 2006, 251).
Belgian purchase was made from a “réserve”.5 Copies
of documents from the original Campana dossier,6
which was probably destroyed during the Second held in the Départment des Antiquités du Musée du
World War, were made in 1904 (fig. 2-4) by De Mot, Cinquantenaire; this material was largely utilized by
probably in order to prepare a text, which is now S. Reinach for his Histoire de la collection Campana
published in Revue Archéologie in 1904-5,7 as De Mot

Louis Brüls from Rome, where he was looking for

In conclusion, the total amount for the Belgian
purchase, “pour l’acquisition & la restoration de 77
vases étrusques et grecs”,15 was 1304.07 ecus and 07
baiocchi, i.e. 7.041.98 Frs.
The documents concerning the restauration of the
objects refer to three names: Giovanni Tedeschi,
Luigi Gregori and Domenico Capella. The last is not
otherwise known.
Giovanni Tedeschi is also mentioned in the documents
of Campana’s trial, where he is accused of having
taken part in the fraud committed by the Marquis,
of which Tedeschi was “Maestro di casa” and “sotto-
cassiere”.16 In a letter dated 4 May 1859, written
by Giovanni Arcangeli to the antiquarian Ottavio
Gigli, who asked news of his friend, we read that “Il
giorno 2 furono giudicati il Seni, il Canestrelli ed il
Tedeschi: i due primi furono dichiarati innocenti,
l’altro fu dimesso in libertà provvisoria”, and after a
short time Campana was also released.17 The Marquis
went to Naples in exile and later to several European
cities including Paris, Dresden and Geneva, until he
went to Florence and finally to Rome.
The painter Luigi Gregori was a very close friend

The important role played by Brunn in the Belgian

Attic vases. There are, in addition, Attic black-figure,
red-figure and black-glazed vases. There are also the
most common South Italian productions: red-figure
vases, black-glazed and Gnathia vases. Finally the
acquisition included terracottas plastic vases and
rhyta, which were beloved by 19th century collectors,
who favoured completing or reproducing them.35
Campana had a very rich collection of plastic vases,
which was carefully described by Birch and Newton in
1856, when they affirmed that “It would be difficult
to point out another collection of equal extent”.36
Thus, the 75 vases in Brussels include coarse
ware, black ware, bucchero, Italiote and Etrusco-
Corinthian pottery, and Attic pottery, among which
are the well-known kantharos signed by Douris and
stamnos signed by Smikros. Many objects had been
reconstructed from fragments and often repainted,
as was the habit with Campana’s restorers:37 sherds
were often wrongly inserted, parts of different vases

inserted medallion. Examples are in the Louvre,39 in

St. Petersburg40 and in Brussels (A759a-b, A760a-b,
catalogue nos.  61 and 62). In 1863, the Belgian
Émile de Meester de Ravestein complained to his
German friend Heinrich Brunn:

“En Belgique les antiquités ont peu de succès.

Les belles acquisitions qu’a faites dernièrement
le gouvernement d’après vos sages conseils,
trouvent peu d’admirateurs. Nous n’avons ici que
M.J. Roulez qui s’y connaît”.

De Mot also ends his report on the Campana

Collection emphasizing how for such a long time
Belgium was uninterested in classical antiquities, and
that from 1863, the year of the acquisition of the
Campana Collection, to 1899 the classical antiquities
“ne sont enrichies que de 119 unités, lesquelles toutes
sont loin d’être notables”. However, the Campana
group of classical antiquities, and particularly objects
such as the stamnos by Smikros and the kantharos by
Douris, had a significant influence on the history of
taste of the country, where the national history had
always played the most important role.

Many of the Campana vases were restored in the 1970s and 1980s, when J. C. Balty was head of the
Antiquities Department of the Musées royaux d’Art et d’Histoire - Koninklijke Musea voor Kunst en
Geschiedenis (MRAH-KMKG). Some of them were only cleaned1. Others were taken apart and obvious
19th century additions were disposed of. The fragments were then cleaned, modern painted additions
removed, and the objects reassembled2. The pieces restored in the 1970s and 1980s, are marked with ◊ and

The Campana Collection

Etruscan bucchero and impasto ware

1. A772 (2245, H64) cup

H. 4; diam. of rim 7,4; diam. of foot 0,3

Surface slightly abraded, and traces of breaks or other damage at the two points
of attachment of the handle. Greyish brown impasto, burnished. Hand-shaped.
Rounded lip above a vertical neck. Distinct transition between neck and shoulder,
the latter decorated with shallow oblique grooves. Body lenticular. Base flat with
gentle transition to body. The vertical handle is attached at the lip and the widest
point of the body. It is composed of four round-sectioned ‘ropes’ plaited together
somewhat clumsily in comparison with the neat shaping of the body.

Impasto. 9th-8th century BC.

The fabric and shape with distinct neck and lenticular body are characteristic
of a well-known class of single-handled cups from the Early Iron Age and Early
Orientalizing periods found across much of peninsular Italy (see for example
Tovoli 1989, 240-241 pl. 110). However, the plaited handle is distinctly odd.
No parallels have been found for it, either on this cup form or any other handled
forms of the period. The only remotely similar handles are in the form of twisted
ropes, but they are not plaited and produce quite a different effect. For example,
the handle of a cup from Bologna made of four pairs of twisted ropes (Bologna,
Museo Civico Archeologico, inv. no. 17343, published in Principi Etruschi 2000,
348-349, no. 468), and the twisted rope handles of some kantharoi dating to the
7th century BC (see for example, Parise Badoni 2000, pl. XLI, 1-2 and Minetti
2004, 97, no. 22, 5-6-7). The lack of close parallels, the clumsy appearance, and
the fact that there are distinct traces of damage, maybe breaks, at both points of
attachment, suggest that the plaited handle on the Brussels cup might have been
a creation of the Campana restorers.

2. A765 (2238, H57) bowl

H. 5,3; diam. of rim 9,6; diam. of foot 0,2.

Intact, though slightly chipped rim and interior. Buccheroid impasto, grey at
breaks, black burnished surface.
Hemispherical bowl with omphalos at centre of base. Small holes below the rim.

Buccheroid impasto. 7th century BC.

This small bowl is close to an impasto example from Narce, now in Copenhagen
Museum inv. no. 4108 (CVA Copenhague 5, pl. 203,7). For holes in the wall,
see the Orientalizing cups discovered in the area of Chiusi (Minetti

3. A779 (2252, H71) pyxis

H. 13,1; diam. of rim 9,8; width max 14,6.

Intact. May have had a lid, now lost. Signs of repairs and modern paint on two
of the legs.
Upright lip. Body cylindrical with cordon at top and bottom. An angled section
between top cordon and lip. Base of body convex. The upper cordon is decorated
with a row of small stamped rosettes, and the lower with a row of diamond
notches. The body is supported by four short legs.

Bucchero. 7th century BC.

There are parallels in Orientalizing buccheroid impasto and bucchero for various
elements of A779. For example, the stamped rosettes are close to those on pyxides
from Caere (see Bonamici 1972, 101-102 and pl. XV). The diamond notches are
very common on various pot forms. There are also various well known types of
rounded pyxis. The Brussels pyxis body fits well with the known range. However,
no parallels have been found for the presence of four legs; all others have three
legs (e.g. Berkin 2003, 55-58 nos. 50-52). The legs of A779 are also unusually
short. It seems unlikely that the Campana restorers added four legs where there
were originally only three, so maybe the pyxis did originally have four legs.

4. A784 (2257, H76) shallow dish or lid

H. 4,2; length 31,9; diam. of foot 15,8.

Intact except for small restorations of the rim in grey plaster. Some encrustation,
mainly found on the convex side. Buccheroid impasto.
Shallow form halfway between elliptical and rectangular with rounded corners.
The concave side has no elaborations, but the convex side has a number of plastic
elements. These consist of an elliptical cordon at the centre, flanked on four sides
by round-sectioned ‘handles’. Each of these elements carries some encrustation.

Buccheroid impasto. 7th century BC (?).

This object is a curiosity. No parallels have been found, and its function is unclear.
The two most likely uses are as a shallow dish or as a lid. The size and shape of
the body find a rough parallel in the Faliscan tray of buccheroid impasto dated
to mid 7th century BC, in the G. Ortiz Collection in Geneva (Chamay 1993,
203 no. 103). Other 7th century trays also exist, for example from Narce (Parise
Badoni 2000, pl. LXX,2), but all have handles attached at the short ends. There
are no parallels for the peculiar array of projections on the convex side of A784.
The central elliptical cordon looks very much like a ring foot, and if this were the
only addition it would make sense to class A784 as a shallow dish. But the four
projections flanking the central cordon are baffling. They look more like handles
than additional feet. It is also peculiar that they are of two different shapes.

5. A773 (2246, H65) amphora with ribbed body

H. 19,4; diam. of mouth 8,8; diam. of foot 6,6.

Lip slightly restored. Rim and handles chipped; encrustation on handles and in
interior. Fine black bucchero. ◊
Round mouth with thinned out-turned lip. Truncated conical neck which flares
outwards just below the lip. Distinct join between neck and shoulder. Shoulder
marked, body globular, disc foot. Ribbon handles attached at lip and top of
shoulder. Body decorated with fine incised vertical lines, parallel but a little
irregular. On the neck there is a row of five vertical fans (9.11/12 rays) on each
side; on the handles, delimited by two parallel incised lines, three vertical fans
(6 rays).

Bucchero. Second half of the 7th century BC.

Classifiable as amphora type 1b (or 1d) Rasmussen 1979 (70-71 or 71-72),

common in Etruria, Latium and Campania (Rasmussen 1979, 70, 143-144),
A773 can be dated between the middle and the last quarter of the 7th century
BC by the ribbed body (Hirschland Ramage 1970, 21). For the shape, see
Cascianelli 2000, no. 16, the amphora in Regter 2003, cat. 49 no. 61 and

6. A777 (2250, H69) oinochoe with mouth in the shape of a lion’s


H. 24,6; diam. of rim 2,5; diam. of foot 5,1.

Restored from a fragmentary and partially incomplete state. Some encrustation
on both internal and external surfaces. Fine black bucchero.
Mouth in the shape of a lion’s head. High conical neck, slightly concave. A ridge
at the join between neck and shoulder. Globular body and disc foot. Vertical
cylindrical handle attached to the back of the lion’s head and to the shoulder.
Handle splits in two at the shoulder. Details of the lion’s head are incised, and
there is incised decoration on the neck and body. On the neck are six open fans
alternating with five triangles filled with converging lines. The body is decorated
with a series of incised figures and floral motifs arranged between two horizontal
lines. From left: a deer facing left with a floral motif in the background; two
lions facing each other, each with the tail ending in a flower, and each with a
human leg in its mouth; a floral motif; and a bull with plaited tail facing left.

Bucchero. Middle of the 7th century BC.

The Brussels vase has been compared with the fragmentary oinochoe in the
Vatican Museums (Pareti 1947, no. 418 pl. 58) by Gran-Aymerich 1983, 81,
who has underlined the influences from the Near East in the shape as well as in
the decoration of the vase. See also CVA Copenhague 5, pl. 197,4, Rasmussen

7. A775 (2248, H67) oinochoe

H. 13,4, to top of handle 14,8; diam. of mouth 4,9; diam. of foot 3,8.
Intact. Many encrustations on the surface. Fine bucchero, lustrous surface in
Trefoil mouth; long conical neck, slightly concave, flaring outwards at the top.
A raised cordon marks the transition between neck and shoulder. Ovoid body
on disc foot. Handle attached to lip and shoulder. The upper part is round-
sectioned, and it becomes a ribbon in the lower section. The only decoration is
a row of five incised horizontal closed fans (four rays) at the bottom of the neck.

Bucchero. Last quarter of the 7th century BC.

The form (oinochoe type 2a, Rasmussen 1979, 76-77) has bronze and silver
prototypes which were imported from the Cypro-phoenician area, and
deposited in princely tombs in Etruria, Palestrina and Pontecagnano. This form,
in bucchero, is characteristic of Southern Etruria, and is dated to the second half
of the 7th century BC: see, for instance, the oinochoe Hannover inv. no. 1977,16
from Veii (Gercke 1996, no. 50). Quite similar, except for the position of the
fans, is a vase in the Costantini Collection at Fiesole Museum (Salvianti 1985,
no. 32). See also the oinochoai inv. no. GR 1985.12-28.1 at the British Museum
(Perkins 2007, 58 no. 227), inv. no. C477bis of the Campana Collection at the

8. A776 (2249, H68) jug

H. 16,2, to top of handle 20,1; diam. of rim 10,3; diam. of foot 5,4.
Intact, except for small chips on the foot. Quite fine bucchero. Firing not
perfect, colour grayish. Repainted with modern lustrous black varnish over the
whole body, except under the foot.
Round mouth with thickened lip. High conical neck flaring outwards at the top.
Distinct angle between neck and shoulder. Ovoid body and ring foot. Vertical
ribbon handle attached at the lip and shoulder. On the body are incised vertical
parallel lines, a little irregular. On the neck are three parallel horizontal grooves
and a row of seven incised horizontal fans.

Bucchero. End of the 7th century BC.

Classifiable as type 1a (Rasmussen 1979, 89-90), this form is common from

the end of the 7th century to the middle of the 6th, especially in Southern Etruria
(Cherici 1988, nos. 66-68). See also Camporeale 1991, no. 136 and, provided
with decoration, CVA British Museum 7, pl. 14,12, and Rizzo 1990, 59 no. 55.
Since the decoration on the form becomes simpler over time until it finally
disappears, and the vase becomes slimmer, A776 can probably be dated to the
end of the 7th century BC.

9. A781 (2254, H73) chalice

H. 13,9; diam. of rim 14,4; diam. of foot 1,2.

Surface much worked and cracked. Bucchero with impressed cylinder decoration.
The bowl has oblique walls which are slightly convex. At the transition from
wall to base of bowl is a ridge decorated with diamond notches. The bowl is
supported on a high stem amd flaring foot. Between the bowl and the foot is a
plain ridge. On the lower stem is a set of three shallow horizontal grooves. The
bowl is decorated above the notched ridge with cylinder stamped scenes between
shallow horizontal grooves. Two figures, facing right, are seated on klismoi with
footstools; in front of them is a procession of four figures facing left. The first
(perhaps female) seems to offer a crown, the last two each carry a spear, and the
second might also carry a spear in the right hand. Immediately behind the seated
pair is a draped figure facing right. This figure holds its hand to its head.

Cylinder stamped bucchero from Chiusi. End of the 7th-6th century BC.

This particular chalice form is common in Chiusine bucchero production, for

example, see the chalice in Turin inv. no. C56 (Hayes 1985, 95, C56) and one
of the C.A. Collection (Camporeale 1991, no. 108). The figured decoration
with alternating groups of human figures either standing or seated on thrones
or klismoi, belongs to Scalia’s group XII of the Chiusine cylinder stamps (Scalia

10. A778 (2251, H70) krateriskos

H. 13,1; diam. of rim 10,6; diam. of foot 6,3

Metal handle: a mobile semicircular handle in bronze, with pine-cone terminals,
has been added in the modern period. It is attached to metal pieces inserted
through the top of each handle of the krateriskos.
Krateriskos: some restoration, notably one of the male heads on the handles. The
same kind of grey plaster seems to have been used for the restorations of A784.
Grey bucchero, quite fine. Much encrustation all over.
Oblique neck; distinct angle between neck and shoulder. Body globular; low
flaring foot. Two short vertical handles attached at lip and shoulder, each
decorated with an outward facing human head. The body is decorated with
three rows of incised tear drops with the pointed ends facing downwards. Below
the tear drops are three horizontal, parallel grooves.

Bucchero. 6th century BC.

Larger krateriskoi are dated by De Puma (1974) to the first half of the 6th century
BC, and considered to be made at Vulci. There are also krateriskoi of similar
form but decorated with an animal frieze published by Camporeale 1972, 55
nos. 1-2. See also Gercke 1996, no. 83.
The metal handle was originally attached to an ancient bronze situla, and it
was presumably added to the krateriskos by the Campana restorers. For similar
handles, ending in a pine-cone, see Berti-Guzzo 1993, 303, 304 nos. 476 and

11. A780 (2253, H72) chalice

H. 18,4; diam. of rim 16,6, diam. of foot 14,5; h. caryatid 12.

Restored from fragments with minor replacements. Some encrustation on the
surface. Black bucchero, lustrous in places.
Roughly hemispherical bowl, with horizontal ridge near the bottom. The ridge is
decorated with diamond notches. Between the ridge and the lip is a set of three
fine horizontal incised grooves. Below the ridge are four fine incised horizontal
grooves. Inside the bowl at the bottom are a central boss and radial incisions.
The bowl is supported by a high and complex foot. It consists of a base with
central stepped conical stem which does not reach the bottom of the bowl, and
around the outside, attached to both base and bowl, are two caryatids alternating
with two openwork plaques decorated with a sphinx with body facing right and
frontal face.

Bucchero. Beginning of the 6th century BC.

This is a typical bucchero type 1a chalice with caryatid supports (Rasmussen

1979, 95). See also Cristofani-Zevi 1965, 23-27 and Brady 1977, 42-29. The
caryatid type is class B2 of Cristofani-Zevi 1965. It is a female figure, wearing
a mantle and polos, her hands grasping her braids at her breasts. This caryatid
type was produced at Caere and Veii in the first third of the 6th century. There are
many similar examples to A780 (see Brady 1977, 50); some are from the C.A.
Collection (Camporeale 1991, nos. 116-118).

H. 33,1; diam. of rim 34,2; width max 45; diam. of foot 19,4.
Restored from numerous fragments with additions. The paint has mostly
disappeared; traces remain of added red and white. Interior black painted, but
with some reddish and brown patches. ◊
On the lip is a zig-zag; on the neck a row of rosettes with a red disc at the centre
and white petals. The rosettes are repeated on the foot. Tongues on the shoulder.
At the bottom of the body are rays and above these a horizontal line. On the
plaque of each handle is a siren, and under each handle are two facing panthers.
On the body are two registers divided by a line. The upper register, side A, shows
three male figures reclining on klinai with fringed mattress covers, and before
them are tables laden with food and footstools. Three kylikes and two kerata
hang on the wall. Side B shows three riders galloping to the left. Each has a
helmet, spear and shield, and leads a second horse. Rosettes above, and a bird to
the right of the horsemen. The lower register shows an animal frieze with grazing
goat facing right and panther facing left repeated three times, and a siren.
Under foot, graffito.

Detroit Painter (J.L. Benson); near the Detroit Painter (D.A. Amyx). Middle
Corinthian, 590-570 BC.

The column-krater is a form characteristic of Middle Corinthian, throughout

the first half of the 6th century, and widespread in Etruria where A710 was
probably found. The banquet and procession of horsemen are common themes
in Middle Corinthian production, and illustrate characteristic activities of an
aristocratic society (Cristofani-Martelli 1996, 10-11 and 18). The horsemen
procession appears on another vase which belonged to Marquis Campana, now

In the 1970s the restorers of MRAH-KMKG (Margos 1977, 233-236) removed
the 19th century repainting and additions. The poor state of preservation of the
decoration makes attribution difficult. Benson (1953, List 82 no. 4a) initially
attributed it to the so-called ‘Three Maidens Painter’, but later reattributed it to
the ‘Banquet Scene Painter’, also known as the Detroit Painter (Benson 1969,
115). In a letter of 1967 from Benson to J. C. Balty, preserved at the MRAH-
KMKG, Benson says he is convinced that it is by the Detroit Painter. In contrast,
Amyx (1988, 197) attributes A710 to the Detroit Painter’s Group, together with
the Leningrad krater inv. no. B4462 and Corinth fragment inv. no. CP.2559.

15. A711 (2184, H2) cup with human face

H. 8,4; diam. of rim 10,8; diam. of foot 4,7.

Intact apart from slight damage to the surface. Encrustations, and paint partly
lost. ◊
Lip quite deep, slightly convex, leans outwards. Body globular, small flaring
foot. Double-torus loop handle attached at bottom of lip and belly. Interior, lip,
lower body and handle painted black. Base reserved. On the body, opposite the
handle, is a human face modeled and with the features painted. Flanking the
face are two aquatic birds facing right, the feathers indicated with incised lines
(9 and 10). Various decorative motifs complete the field, and there are two lines
below the face.

“Gruppo a maschera umana”. 560-550 BC.

The “Gruppo a maschera umana”, late Etrusco-Corinthian, was identified and

named by Colonna (1959-60, 125-143). He includes A711 with the earliest
products of this painter, which he says are characterized by the use of more than
five incised lines to indicate the birds’ feathers. For the “Gruppo a maschera
umana”, active at Vulci and Caere during the third quarter of the 6th century, see

Tyrrhenian Group. Kyllenios Painter (J. Kluiver). 560-550 BC.

In the 1950s, the restorers removed the 19th century repainting, as we read
in a letter dated from 18 September 1957, written by D. von Bothmer to V.
Verhoogen and kept in the MRAH-KMKG. A new restoration was carried out
in August 1977 (MRAH-KMKG, Restoration file).
The scene on side A, with ityphallic Satyrs and dancing Nymphs/Menads wearing
short belted dresses is common on Thyrrenian amphorae (Hedreen 1992, 149
note 101; Kluiver 2003, 98-100). Hoplites are also a common subject, but the
Brussels vase seems to be the only one on which the warriors are shown running
instead of marching (Kluiver 1992, 85). Also unusual is the scene of two men
hunting a deer on foot; they usually ride horses (Schnapp 1997, 220-222).
Both Beazley and von Bothmer knew of the Brussels amphora but neither
attributed it to a painter. Recently, it has been attributed to the Kyllenios Painter
by Kluiver (1992, 84-85). For this painter, recognizable in the slightly rigid
rendering of the warriors and the arrangement of animals in three registers
below the shoulder, see von Bothmer 1944, 165 and Kluiver 1996, 1-6, 31.
For the vessel shape used by the painter, see Kluiver 1993, 183-184, 189.
A careful analysis of the Brussels vase has been made by Baurain-Rebillard
(1998, 92-95) in a study of the use of alphabet letters and nonsense inscriptions
on Thyrrenian amphorae.

17. A714/A (2187, H6) neck-amphora

H. 23,4; diam. of rim 14,1.

Restored from fragments. Several missing fragments on the rim and shoulder;
modern foot. ◊
On the rim, tongues. On the neck, a double row of antithetic palmettes linked
with a chain; on the shoulder, tongues, alternating plain and glazed, and a
palmette-lotus festoon. Upright lotus buds and a band of double rays above the
A-B: scene of warriors arming; on the background, nonsense inscriptions. Under
each handle, a winged figure.

Phrynos Painter (J.D. Beazley). 550-540 BC.

The amphora had been restored and completed, presumably by the restorers
working for Campana. They added the modern foot (A714), which was removed
during the restoration carried out by the team of the MRAH-KMKG under
the direction of Professor J.  C.  Balty in November 1977 (MRAH-KMKG,
Restoration file).
The vase belongs to the so called “Botkin Class”, a peculiar group of neck-
amphorae, of small dimensions and very elaborate ornament (Beazley 1931,
284; ABV, 169-170), for which the potter could have been Amasis (von
Bothmer 1985, 128, 132; Boardman 1987, 144-145). Mommsen (1997, 28)
has noted that A714/A has the same double ray pattern above the foot as the
amphora Cabinet des Médailles inv. no. 222, which carries the potter’s signature
(ABV, 152 no. 25; Para, 63; Add2, 43).
Beazley has attributed the Brussels vase to the Phrynos Painter, a member of the
so-called Little Masters, who was particularly fond of this kind of amphora as
well as of the more traditional cups (ABFV, 65). Stylistically the Brussels vase is
very close to the Würzburg amphora inv. no. L241 (ABV, 169 no. 5; Para, 70;
Add2, 48).
A close parallel for the iconography, which helps to complete the arming scene
on B, is the scene on a fragment in Milan inv. no. 4636 (ABV, 169 no. 2; Para,
71; Add2, 48). For the winged figure under the handles, see an amphora in Berlin
inv. no. F1714 (ABV, 169 no. 6; Para, 71; Add2, 48).

H. 23,6; diam. of rim 11; diam. of foot 8,8.

Restored from fragments. Scratched surface, mainly on rim and handles. On the

The inside is black-glazed until halfway down the neck, except for a red line near
the rim. Outside, a red line on the neck and hanging lotus buds. Rays above the
A: Dionysos between a female figure on the right and Hermes on the left; a
dotted vine in the background. B: Amazon fighting with two warriors.

520-510 BC.

On the obverse of the amphora, cleaned of its 19th century repainting, Dionysos

holding a keras stands between Hermes and a female figure, possibly Ariadne.
For the identification of the figure, who is often represented together with the
wine god as well as Dionysos’ followers, satyrs, menads or nymphs, see Hedreen
1992, 36-44 and Isler-Kerényi 2001, 116-118.
With regard to side B, von Bothmer included the scene in a small group of vases
representing three figures, an Amazon and two warriors, for which there are
not enough details to provide a more precise identification, so that the image is
classified as a generic Amazonomachy scene.

On the neck, a double palmette lotus-chain, with details in red, and graffito. On

A: two hoplites fighting over the body of a dead warrior; at either side, a women
looking on. B: Herakles fighting Triton. On the left, an old man seated, and on
the right, a small winged figure is placed close to a palmette under the handle.

Three‑Line Group (J.D. Beazley). 520-510 BC.

On side A, two hoplites fighting in the presence of two women may indicate the
fight between Achilles and Memnon supported by their mothers, Thetis and Eos,
who according to the version of the myth in the Aithiopis (see Slatkin 1991,
23-26), are each present at her son’s side. Thus, the dead warrior could be either
Antilochos, following the literary tradition, or Melanippos, according to the pottery
tradition, a Greek hero murdered by Memnon (EAA IV, s.v. “Memnone-1”, 999-
1000; LIMC VI, s.v. “Memnon”, 448-450; LIMC I, s.v. “Antilochos I”, 830-831).
The small winged figure on B could be an allusion to the soul of Memnon, as one
version of the myth states that Eos obtains immortality for her son destined to die,
so that at the end of the fight, his soul was flown away by a god. For the winged
figure, stylistically very similar to the small figures on the amphora München inv.

With reference to the scene on side B, two other amphorae attributed to the

Smikros, 510-500 BC.

The Campana stamnos is known from the end of 19th century, mainly for
the inscriptions and, in particular, for the potter’s signature on side A, above
the central figure, which is labelled with the same name as the painter,
Smikros. Edmond Pottier knew of the stamnos in 1888 thanks to the notes
of Albert Dumont and a drawing sent to him by Jean de Witte (Pottier
1888, 177 note 1), but there is no mention that it belonged to the Campana
Collection. The modern paint, typical of the work of Campana’s restorers,
was removed after the publication of Gaspar (1902, 14-41, pl.  II, with
watercolors ordered by A. van Branteghem, today at MRAH-KMKG). As
Philippart (1930, 162) writes: “les repeints qui figurent sur la planche II des
Mon. Piot IX, 1902, ont été supprimés”. A further restoration was made in
MRAH-KMKG after D. von Bothmer recognized a fragment as belonging
to the shoulder of the stamnos and the Metropolitan Museum of New York
gave it to the Brussels Museum in 1985 (von Bothmer 1986, 18 note 22).
The vase shows an elaborate symposium, with the servants on the side
B. It is similar to the iconography on a fragmentary calyx-krater in
Munich, which has so many affinities with the Brussels stamnos that
Vermeule (1965, 34-35) has suggested that the latter is “an experimental
reflection made while the krater was still in the shop in Athens unsold”.
On the stamnos, the painter has represented, together with Pheidiades, another
young man, the hetairai Helike, Choro and Rhode, and the figure labelled as
Smikros. The latter could be a self-portrait of the painter, the only known
example in Attic pottery (Keuls 1997, 287-289), and it would be of an artisan
taking part in an aristocratic symposium, a rarity in the Greek world. The scene
is therefore important for the study of the social status of potters and painters
in Athens, for the presence of the signature (Cohen 1991, 49-95; Williams
1995, 139-160) as well as for the participation of an artisan in an aristocratic
practice (Mark 1995, 32), generally considered improbable, if not impossible.
Recently a new hypothesis has been suggested (Hedreen 2009): the painter
represents himself as a caricature in a humourous way, mocking himself and his
colleagues. An ironic way of communication, which would seem typical of the
Pioneer Group, to which Smikros belongs. They would have adopted this


practice from iambic poetry, well known in the symposium environment,

achieving “the successful translation of a strategy of iambic poetic humor into
a visual medium” (Hedreen 2009, p. 239). The scene could be understood
not only by painters and potters, but also by the aristocrats at the symposium,
accustomed to iambic poetry.
For its exceptionality, Webster (1972, 42) has put the Brussels stamnos in the
chapter devoted to “special commissions”, writing: “This was clearly painted for
a special party and prompts the question, did he paint a whole set of drinking
vessels for this party?”.

21. A723 (2196, H15) kylix

H. 9,5; diam. rim 26,5; width with handles 33,7; diam. foot 10,9.
Restored from fragments. ◊
I: satyr holding a kantharos seated on a wineskin, which has the inscription
kra[te]s kalos in black. In the background, the inscription krates k[a]los in red. A:
five satyrs, three of which dancing, one playing pipes, one riding a phallos bird.
In the background, the inscription krates k[a]los ka[lo]s in red. B: komos: three
youths dancing, one with pointed amphora on which is the inscription krates in
black; on the right, a fourth komast has a ladle, and close to him an amphora on
a stand has the inscription ka[l]os in black. In the background, the inscription
krates kal[o]s krates in red.

Proto-Panaitian Group (J.D. Beazley). 500-490 BC.

In the 19th century, Hartwig (1893, 69) attributed the cup to Euphronios;
eventually Beazley, who made a drawing of the kylix, which is in the Beazley
Archive in Oxford, wrote: “This is a difficult piece to place exactly: the inside is
very Panaetian; the outside is less so, and it combines old-fashioned traits with
more modern ones” (ARV2, 317).
The iconography is typical of the Dionysiac world, with satyrs dancing,
playing pipes and riding a bird with head and neck in the form of a phallus,
Mischwesen, for which see Boardman 1992, 227-242; Dierichs 1993, 48-49
and Rickenbach 2002, 60. Lissarrague (1987a, 44) describes the scene as
an extraordinary komos, where the positions of the satyrs are so audacious, that
two of them walk on their hands, upside down, recalling an “inverted” world.
Moreover, the presence of the phallus-bird refers to erotism and sexual desire. On
side B, a komos of men dancing and drunk with wine, to which the amphorae,
one held by a youth and another on a stand, clearly refer. Inside, where the satyr
is playing askoliasmos, vases linked with wine are also represented. However, the
trait d’union between the scenes represented on the kylix is rather the acclamation
kalos krates which appears on the three images. Mitchell (2009, 192) describes
the mad komos as a parody.
For the Proto-Panaitian Group, see ARV2, 314-318 and CVA British Museum 9
(1993), 22.

22. A718 (2191, H10) kantharos

H. 12,9, with handle 18; diam. of rim 15,4; diam. of foot 8,1.
Reconstructed from a number of fragments and restored. Missing parts on the
rim; one handle and the attachment of the other are modern reconstructions. ◊
A: in the centre, Herakles strikes a fallen Amazon. He wears a lion skin and
carries a sword in his left hand, and a bow in his right. To the left of the hero,
an Amazon advances towards the centre; on the right, two Amazons, one of
whom is on one knee drawing her bow, while the other, equipped as a hoplite,
strides toward the hero. Inscription in red: Doris egraphsen : Doris ep[oiesen]. B:
in the centre, a hoplite (Telamon) lifts his sword to strike a fallen Amazon. On
either side are Amazons dressed as hoplites, with round shields, spears, cuirass,
and crested helmets. They stride to the centre towards the hero, spears and bows
upraised. Inscription in red, on two lines: Chairestratos kalos.

Douris. 490-480 BC.

Today the kantharos is without the 19th century restorations visible on the
photos published in the CVA; it had been reconstructed from fragments and
partly repainted, probably by the restorers working for Campana. The Marquis
admired this vase, as is clear from the letter written by Louis Brüls to Portaels
on 3rd December 1862, after the visit he paid to what remained of the Campana
Museum at Rome: “Dans la 1e armoire vitrée j’ai remarqué plusieurs vases de la
célèbre fabrique de Nola, ce qui m’a surpris le plus fut un vase à anses relevées
avec figures jaunes, d’un côté le combat d’Hercule contre les Amazones, de l’autre
le même combat avec Thésée. Ce vase est un des plus beaux que j’ai vus dans
ma vie; Campana, dans sa lettre de la non acceptation de l’offre du Marchand
d’antiquités, observe que ce vase, qu’il décrit dans tous ses détails sans oublier les
inscriptions, doit être conservé pour lui, j’ai répondu aux administrateurs que
si on l’ôtait je renoncerais au projet de présenter la collection au Gouvernement
Belge pour l’acquérir”.
Gerhard mentioned the kantharos in the Archäologische Zeitung of 1846 and it
has been published in several handbooks and articles on Attic ceramography,
because it is peculiar for its shape as well as its iconography, and for the presence
of a double signature. It is a kantharos type C, a rare shape from the so-called
“Transitional Period I (‘Rich’)” of Douris (Buitron-Oliver 1995, 74-76). It
bears the only known double signature of Douris as both painter and potter
(Buitron-Oliver 1995, 63). Moreover, it has the inscription Chairestratos
kalos, which is associated with the earlier period (“Periods 1 and 2”) of Douris’
production (CVA British Museum 9, 33).
About the iconography, showing Herakles’ Amazonomachy on one side and
Telamon’s Amazonomachy on the other, von Bothmer (1957, 139) noted that
Douris inverted the traditional direction of the figures, resulting in a drawing and
composition which is quite poor. Buitron-Oliver (Buitron-Oliver 1995, 19)
writes: “Since Douris made the kantharos himself, and it is an unusual model,
the placement of sturdy figures on a sturdy vase may be deliberate, suggesting
that it may have been a special commission”.
For Douris, see Buitron-Oliver 1995; CVA British Museum 9, 32; Tzachou-
Alexandri 2002, 69-90.

23. A721 (2194, H13) neck-amphora with double handles

H. 32,1; diam. of rim 13; width max 20,3; diam. of foot 8,6.
Intact. ◊
On the neck, an elaborate floral palmette pattern and a row of stopped meanders
with cross-squares underneath. On the shoulder, tongues. On the body, below
the picture a row of facing lyre palmettes; in the middle, a row of stopped
meanders with cross-squares. Under the handles, an elaborate arrangement of
palmettes and lotus buds.
A: an athlete, moving to right and looking back, holds an akontion. On right,
an akontion leaning against the wall, and on the ground a diskos decorated with
a silhouette owl and letters (kalos). On left, various objects (a strigil, an aryballos
and a sponge) on the wall. B: an athlete running to the left, holding an horizontal
akontion. On right, a dikella, on left an akontion leaning on the wall.

Eucharides Painter (J.D. Beazley). 480 BC.

The amphora was restored in February 1980 (MRAH-KMKG, Restoration file).

The athletes represented on both sides of A721 are akontists, javelin throwers.
Javelin throwing was one of the competitions of pentathlon, which also included
the jump, footrace, discus (diskos), throwing and wrestling: see Kyle 1987, 180-
181, Waddele 1991, 99-106; for the javelin, see Sweet 1987, 52-55; for the
pentathlon, see Miller 2005, 60-74. The objects hanging on the wall allude to a
palaestra, where athletes exercised. For the owl on the discus, see Beazley 1908,
316-318, Shapiro 1993, 216-218 and Valavanis 2005.
Beazley attributed the amphora to the Eucharides Painter, who worked in
both the black- and red-figure techniques (ABV, 395-398; ARV2, 226-232;
Langridge 1993; Agora 30, 93-94); for the rendering of anatomical details and
the use of dilute glaze, see Beazley 1911-12, 228-232.
Among the red-figure neck-amphorae attributed to the Eucharides Painter, the
Brussels vase is small, with double handles ending in two circular convex reel
shapes, like the amphora Naples inv. no. Stg. 249 (ARV2, 226, no. 6; Add2, 199).
Langridge (1993, 115-116) compares these two vases to the amphora in the
Louvre, inv. no. G202 (ARV2, 226, no. 4; Add2, 199), suggesting that they were
all made by the same potter. The amphora Louvre inv. no. G202, formerly in the
Campana Collection (Cataloghi Campana, Classe I serie VIII no. 75; ARV2, 226,
no. 4; Langridge 1993, 360-361, no. E46) has an elaborate neck pattern on the
obverse which is very similar to that of the Brussels amphora.
For the Eucharides Painter see ARV2, 226-232 and Langridge 1993. For the
shape, see Kurtz 1983, 77, Euwe 1988 and Langridge 1993, 112-120.

24. A719 (2192, H11) oinochoe

H. 19,1; diam. of foot 7.

Mouth reconstructed and slightly restored. ◊
Oval body with a offset neck, a spout extending upwards and a handle. Lacking
all subsidiary ornament, except for a reserved line at the base of the neck and an
incised line below the picture.
A: a bearded men, nude except for a clamys and two headbands (one reserved
and the other in white), advances to right while leaning on a stick. He carries
a barbiton on this shoulders and holds a plektron in his left hand. B: a bearded
komast, nude except for a clamys and headbands (one reserved and one in red),
in frontal view but looking to the left, is playing krotala. The inscription kalos is
painted in red, placed horizontally between the two figures.

Painter of the Brussels Oinochoai (J.D. Beazley). Second quarter of the 5th
century BC.

It is the eponymous vase attributed, together with the oinochoe A720, by Beazley
to a painter working during the second quarter of the 5th century BC (ARV2,
775; Add2, 288).
The two figures look towards each other and are related; on similarly shaped
vases the two sides are usually connected. Such a shape is rare in Attica, but
quite common in Etruria, so that it has been suggested that it was made for
export (J. Neils, in Shapiro 1981, no. 47 and Donati 1993, 262-263). On
the Brussels vase the two komasts walk in the same direction and it is the krotala
player who is looking back which creates a clear link between the two figures, a
link emphasized by the kalos inscription.
For the Painter of the Brussels Oinochoai, see Robertson 1992, 218 and

Dessypri Painter (J.D. Beazley). Middle of the 5th century BC.

Beazley attributed the Brussels vase to the Dessypri Painter, after a Greek
collector. The lekythos is of standard shape and shows a subject much loved by
the painter: a woman running with sash (cfr. ARV2, 1197-1198). Compare the
lekythos inv. no. 810 in the Collection of the Banco di Sicilia (Giudice-Tusa-

H. 24,3; diam. of rim 15; diam. of foot 12,8.

Restored from fragments; one handle missing; surface chipped and worn.
Reddish patches from imperfect firing. ◊
Ionic kyma along the rim, and above and below the scene.
A: pygmy with club and pelta fighting against two cranes. B: two draped youths.

The Helbig-Reverse Group (J.D. Beazley). Middle of the 4th century BC.

The vase had been completed with the addition of a handle, probably in the
19th century to make it more marketable. The handle was removed during the
restoration carried out in October 1976 (MRAH-KMKG, Restoration file).
Beazley included the Brussels pelike in his Helbig-Reverse Group, so called
after an example today in Copenhagen, and formerly in the Helbig collection
(ARV2, 1474, 1708). Similarities in shape and decoration among the nine pelikai
attributed to the Group have been outlined by Klinger (1997, 38-39).
On side A of the Brussels vase is a fight between a pygmy and two cranes, a
frequent theme on pelikai dated to the 4th century BC, together with the
Amazonomachy and Gryphomachy (CVA Moscow 6, 25). For pygmies, see
Sparkes 2000a, 79-80 and Harari 2004, 163-190. The representation of two
draped youth on side B is also typical of the Group. Beazley has compared side
B of the Brussels vase to the drawing of the pelikai in Prague (ARV2, 1474 no. 2)
and Faenza (ARV2, 1474 no. 11).

28. A716 (2189, H8) Lekythos

H. 22; diam. of mouth 4,5; max. width 7,7; diam. of foot 5,3.
Intact. Chips on the surface. Paint partly faded on the mouth and handle. On
the base, a reddish patch. ◊
Chimney mouth, slim offset neck, sloping shoulder, cylindrical body, band
handle from neck to shoulder; tall disc base with concave edge. The mouth
is painted, except the top; on the shoulder, one row of black strokes and one
of rays; outer surface of the handle painted; two narrow black lines below the
shoulder; below this, a meander to the right, between black lines; at about mid-
body, an ivy branch with leaves and berries, one narrow black line and one
lattice band above and below; on lower body four incised lines; lowest part of
body and top of the foot are painted.

Second quarter of the 5th century BC.

It is one of the pattern lekythoi, produced during the first half of the 5th century
BC in Athens together with the palmette and the black-bodied lekythoi, for
the internal market as well as for export (Kurtz 1975, 131, 143). For their
production, associated with the Haimon Painter and the Beldam Painter, see
Kurtz 1975,152-155 and Brownlee 1995, 338-340 and 359-361.
The Brussels lekythos is very similar to the vases in Frankfurt inv. nos. 2688 and
2689 (CVA Frankfurt am Main 4, pls. 52,5-6 and 52,7-8); and the meander
decoration on the shoulder is very close to that on the lekythoi in Nantes inv.
no. D974-2-31 (CVA Nantes Musée Dobrée, pl. 22,9) and in Corinth (Corinth
13, 165). For further comparisons, see De Ruyt-Hackens 1974, no. 19 and

Attic black glaze with impressed decoration

29. A741 (2214, H33) kantharos

H. 11,9; diam. of rim 12; diam. of foot 6,7.

Intact. Chipped and worn surface. ◊
Glazed, with impressed figures. Deep oval body with short concave neck and
two vertical double handles from shoulder to rim. A border of ovules just below
the junction of neck and body; below the main scene, a border of sloping double
palmettes linked by spirals. Two grooves around the side of the foot.
A: two Gorgons running left and on the right Medusa, beheaded. Above her
Pegasus and at the foot of an Ionic sphinx column the baby Chrysaor. B: on the
left, Athena facing Hermes followed by Perseus.

About 430 BC. From Cumae.

The vase was published in Annali dell’Istituto di Corrispondenza Archeologica

(Braun 1855, 18), with its provenance originally thought to be Cumae, but
eventually scholarly literature, with the exception of Gaspar (1902, 15), mentions
the provenance as Nola. The confusion is due to the interpretation given to the
adjective Nolan in the 19th century, when Nolan vases were “celebrated for the
extraordinary lustre and depth of colour of the black glaze which forms the
ground of the picture, and for the grace and refinement of the drawing”. The
adjective ‘Nolan’ therefore does not indicate the provenance, but a category of
objects considered particularly beautiful because of the lustrous glaze.
The association of the Brussels kantharos with four other Attic vases with
impressed decoration has led to the hypothesis of the existence of an Attic
workshop which employed incised decoration, a technique already known at
the beginning of the 5th century BC, but employed at the end of the 5th century
BC in order to represent human figures and not only floral motives (Sparkes
1968, 3).
The Brussels kantharos seems to have been produced together with a very similar
one today in Boston, both defined by Sparkes as the “Perseus shape” and dated to
about 430 BC. As regards the decoration, the use of clay stamps for single figures
allowed variation of the subject or/and the number and position of the figures,
so that there are slight differences between the two vases, for which the same
stamps were used. Such a technique was complex, and therefore soon replaced
with a simpler technique which allowed a whole scene to be impressed (Sparkes
1968, 4, 6-7, 11, 15).

Attic black glaze

30. A763 (2236, H55) stemmed plate

H. 6,2; diam. of rim 19,3; diam. of foot 7,8. ◊

Broad rim, reserved except for a black band along the lip, shallow plate glazed in
lustrous black paint but a reserved band on the exterior, reserved high stem. On
the reserved parts, traces of dilute paint.

End of 5th century BC.

The stemmed plate was not published in the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum because
it was considered a pastiche, as the vase description of that time (file in MRAH-
KMKG) suggests: “Assiette à bord plat, montée sur pied (de coupe?) terre rosée,
surface orangée-noir lustré passant à l’olivâtre. Rebord plat intérieur, large bande
extérieure, partie du pied: réservés. Pied recollé. Pièce remaniée?”.
Now, however, it may be included in a group of Attic plates (Agora 12, 143)
which have been discovered in great quantity in North Italy, especially in the
area of Spina. See, for Spina cemeteries, Massei 1978, 220 no. 7, pl. LI,3, 231
no. 3, pl. LIV,1 and, for the Numana area, Fabrini 1984, 80-81 no. 84. It is the
group of the “stemmed plates” classified in ARV2, 1305-1311; see also Sparkes
2000b, 320-329.

Lucanian. Amykos Painter (A.D. Trendall). “Painter A” of the Karneia Painter

(M. Denoyelle). 420-400 BC.

A.D. Trendall attributed A724 to the Amykos Painter, initator, together with
the Pisticci Painter, of Lucanian ceramography. See Trendall 1973, 3, 5-7;
LCS, 29-50; LCS Suppl. II, 156-157; Magi 1935, 119-137; Bertocchi 1958,

Castoldi 2006b; Denoyelle-Iozzo 2009, 100-107.
Trendall (LCS, 34 no.118) has compared side B, on which the three draped
youths follow the scheme A1+C1+C (cf. LCS, 11-12), to side B of the krater
in Taranto inv. no. 6999 (LCS, 35 no. 133); he considered both late works of
the Amykos Painter. More recently, M. Denoyelle (CVA Louvre 25, 23) has
attributed the Brussels vase, together with nine other vases of different shapes,
to the so-called “Painter A” of the Karneia Painter, responsible for decorating
the Dionysiac side of the Karneia krater in the National Archaeological
Museum of Taranto. Moreover, the scholar has compared it, in the rendering
of the woman, to the pelike in Naples inv. no. H2911 (LCS, 41 no. 188) and
to the column-krater at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne inv.
no. D 150/1977 (LCS Suppl. III, 15 no. 180a). For the mantle-figures, see

Apulian. Related to the Eton-Nika Painter (A.D. Trendall). 380-370 BC.

Despite the following statement “D’après la lettre de H. Metzger, Prof. à la

Faculté des Lettres de Lyon, ce vase serait attique (26.6.54); il cite à l’appui
un classement (inédit) de J.D. Beazley” (MRAH-KMKG archives), there is no
reference to the possibility that A725 could be an Attic vase in the review of CVA
Bruxelles 3 by Beazley (1950, 88).
The Brussels krater has been compared by A.D. Trendall to the work of a follower
of the Tarporley Painter, the Eton-Nika Painter, who preferred painting bell-
kraters. For Apulian pottery, see more recently Castoldi 2006a.

Campanian. Ixion Painter (J.D. Beazley). 330-320 BC.

The Brussels krater has been attributed by J.D. Beazley to the Ixion Painter,
a follower of the school of the Cassandra Painter. Active in Campania during
the last third of the 4th century BC, the Ixion Painter is fond of monumental
vases with complex mythological scenes. The krater A727 shows some stylistic
features typical of the Ixion Painter, such as the characteristic white wreath on
the head of the figures and the subsidiary decoration. A.D. Trendall included it
in the third section of the Ixion Group, devoted to minor vases.

Campanian. Errera Painter (J.D. Beazley). 340-320 BC.

Beazley attributed the Brussels skyphos to the Errera Painter, a follower of the
Cassandra Painter’s school. The female figure with the visible flesh in white,
the white wreaths as well as the rock are all characteristic of the Errera Painter
(Trendall 1989, 160-161).

Apulian. The Patera Painter (A.D. Trendall). 340-330 BC.

A.D. Trendall, in a letter dated 2nd September 1974, noted that this was an
amphora typical of the late phase of the Patera Painter, together with the vases
in Würzburg inv. no. 856 (RVAp II 23/98) and inv. no. 854 (RVAp II 23/100),
in the Villa Giulia inv. nos. 50654 and 50664 (RVAp II 23/96), in the British
Museum inv. no. F334 (RVAp II 23/101), in Milan inv. no. H.A. 221 (RVAp II
23/103), “and many other similar and unpublished vases”.
The Patera Painter, a contemporary of the Darius Painter, owes his name to the
characteristic long-handled patera which is often represented on his vases. He is
a very prolific painter who favours funerary scenes, generally a naiskos on one
side and a stele on the reverse of large vases. For the painter, see RVAp II, 721-
747; Trendall 1989, 94-96 and Schauenburg 1992, 414-431; Denoyelle-

fillets and a thyrsos (in white), leaning her left arm on a small pilaster. On the
left, a youth, with chlamys and a band on his head. B: two female figures wearing
chitons, a wreath on the hair which is tied up at the nape, jewels, standing at
either side of a stele with fillets; both carry a wreath.

Apulian. Group of Copenhagen 4223 (A.D. Trendall). 340-330 BC.

A.D. Trendall included the Brussels vase in the Group of the Painter of Copenhagen
4233, a forerunner of the Darius Painter (Aellen-Cambitoglou-Chamay

H. 9,3; diam. of rim 9,2; diam. of foot 5,1.

Intact. Encrustation on the surface, mainly on the handles and interior. ◊
Covered inside and outside with a dull black glaze with greenish sheen, except
for a reserved band between body and foot. A deep cup resting on a ring foot,
with two horizontal round handles below a plain rim. Added colour (white and
yellow) decoration. Under the rim, a series of dots and a reserved band, between
a pair of incised lines, filled with oblique ‘S’s and dots. On the obverse, a garland
between two wreaths; on the reverse, a wreath between a garland and a fillet. On
both sides, crosses with dots on the background.

Etruscan. Second half of the 4th century BC.

Classified as Gnathia pottery in the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, the skyphos

A770 seems rather an Etruscan product, imitating the Gnathia style. It resembles
the example inv. no. RC 2611 published in Pianu 1982, 111 no. 211, as well

38. A732 (2205, H24) oinochoe

H. 46, with protome 47,4; diam. of foot 13,4.

Handle lost.
The points of attachment of the handle both have a head of a silen with the eyes,
eyebrows and beard in yellow. Black-glazed except for a reserved band between
the body and foot, and underside the foot. The ribbed body has a band between
white lines, filled with an incised ziz-zag and painted in red and yellow, with ivy
leaves and white dots around the body. On the neck, a male figure in Phrygian
dress and cap (in white and yellow) seated on a rock; above, a grape vine (in
white and yellow) interrupted at the handle and hanging vertically, with two red
and white fillets at either side of the figure; below, a white line.

Gnathia style. Last quarter of the 4th century BC.

In Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum the Brussels oinochoe is published with a handle,

ancient but not belonging, which was removed by the conservators of the
MRAH-KMKG under the direction of Professor J. C. Balty.
The trefoil oinochoe is a common vessel shape in Gnathia pottery. At the end
of the 4th century and during the 3rd century BC, it had developed a long and
narrow neck with a distinctive decoration of ivy branches, grapes alternating
with tendrils and leaves, sometimes with the addition of objects such as a bird
or a mask (Lippolis 1994, 244-246). The oinochoai A732 and A733, rather
large and with a good quality glaze, can be dated to the last quarter of the 4th
century BC (phase B1 of Taranto). A similar example is the vase published in
Mayo-Hamma 1983, 274-275 no. 135. For the Gnathia style see, more recently,
Denoyelle-Iozzo 2009, 207-212.

H. 38,1, with protome 40,4; diam. of foot 11,1.

Intact, with mended handle. Rim, handle and foot chipped. Added paint partly
lost. ◊
Covered in black, quite lustrous, glaze except for a band between the body and
foot, and the standing surface. On the neck, a mask (in white) between red fillets
with white fringes, hanging from a branch (in white and yellow), interrupted
at handle. At the mid-point of the ribbed body, a reserved band between white
lines, filled with alternating white and red rosettes. Where the top of the handle
is attached is the head of a satyr painted in white.

Gnathia style. End of the 4th century BC.

The restoration carried out by the team of the MRAH-KMKG under the
direction of Professor J. C. Balty, resulted in the removal of the paint probably
added by the restorers of Marquis Campana: the images published in Corpus
Vasorum Antiquorum show a complete mask.
The oinochoe was classified as shape 5 by Webster (1968, 4), who attributed it
to the Ribbed Group. The introduction of ribbing in the decoration of Gnathia
vases is dated to the end of 4th century BC. Because of the reduced space available
for decoration, fixed motives, such as birds and female heads between floral
elements, developed on very limited parts of the vase (Green 1989, 223). For
the decoration on the neck, see oinochoe inv. no. 20888 of G. Chierici Museum
in Reggio Emilia (Pedrazzi 1998, 58 cat. 4.04). For a discussion on production
and chronology of the Italiote ribbed vases, see Puritani 2002, 396-399.

Intact. Interior of mouth and surface slightly chipped. ◊
Black-glazed except for a band between the body and foot, and underside the
foot. Flaring mouth, neck with concave profile, ovoid ribbed body with, at mid-
point, a reserved band between red lines, filled with decoration in white and
yellow. On the shoulder, a female head in profile, with hair tied at the nape (in
white and yellow), facing left, between branches. White and yellow tongues on
the neck under the double handle, with the knot of Herakles at top.

Gnathia style. End of the 4th century BC.

The Brussels vase is similar to lekythos from Rudiae, which however has a protome
at the lower point of attachment of the handle (series 5419b1 of Morel 1981),
and to one from Francavilla Fontana (Marinazzo 1979, 27-39 pl. II). See also
the lekythos, a little later as it has a slimmer body and the decoration is coarser, in
Andreassi et alii 1995, 57 no. 1.3.6, and an example with the knot of Herakles
on the handle in Madrid (Pérez Ballester 2002, 53 no.  2). For the type,
common in the Messapian area, see Bernardini 1961, pl. 51,1-7.
For handles with the knot of Herakles, quite frequent in Gnathia pottery at the
end of the 4th and during the 3rd century BC, see Green 1989, 224.

41. A751 (2224, H43) bombylios/bottle

H. 10; diam. of foot 4,2.

Restored from fragments. Mouth missing. Foot chipped. ◊
Lustrous black glaze. The outer side and underside of foot is reserved with added
miltos. Added colours only partly preserved. Tall moulded foot, globular body
and slim neck. Decoration incised and painted in yellow-white and some red.
On the neck, white tongues, a Ionic kyma, and a series of white dots. On the
body, between pairs of incised lines and a series of dots in white, is a protome
of winged female facing left and wearing a sakkos (in yellow-white). Next to the
right wing (in red with white details) are the remains of a white rosette.

Gnathia style. End of the 4th century BC.

Campana’s restorers created a pastiche, using the body of a bombylios and a mouth
(diam. 4,1) which is ancient but does not belong; the vase was covered with a
black varnish and a painted female figure (see the image in Corpus Vasorum
Antiquorum) for which they obviously took inspiration from ancient vases. In
the restoration carried out in 1974 in MRAH-KMKG the mouth and modern
paint were removed (MRAH-KMKG, Restoration file).
The Brussels bombylios is a product of phase B of Taranto, dated between 325
and 275 BC (Lippolis 1994, 254-256). In the subsidiary decoration, it is similar
to an example in Stockholm inv. no.  NM299 (Webster 1968, 1-32 pl.  Ic),
whereas in shape and decoration, it is very similar to the bottle from Taranto in
Heidelberg University inv. no. U68 (CVA Heidelberg 2, pl. 86,6) and to the vase
at the Musée A. Dubouche in Limoges inv. no. 79-04 (CVA Musée de Limoges,
IVD pl. 33,4 and 6).
For the peculiar shape, closer in use and decoration to the more common lekythos,
see Bernardini 1961, pl. XLVI, K, Lippolis 1994, 254-256 and Andreassi et
alii 1995, cat. 1.3.9.
The decorative scheme of a female head between floral elements and branches
is typical of Middle Gnathia until the end of 4th century BC, when the use
of ribbing begins; see Green 1989, 221-223 and Andreassi et alii 1995, cat.

42. A735 (2208, H27) oinochoe

H. 22,7, with handle 23,2; width of mouth 8,4; diam. of foot 7,7.
Intact, with a lustrous smooth surface. ◊
Black-glazed except for the underside of the foot. A red wash covers the rim and
a reserved area at the joint of the body and foot. The globular body is covered in
vertical ribbing, with a white incised line separating it from the smooth tapered
shoulder. A short concave neck flares into a trefoil mouth and gently arches down
to the shoulder. At the base of the neck, a reserved band, between horizontal
lines in white and in red, is filled with a grape vine in white and yellow, which
ends at the back near the base of the handle.

Gnathia style. 300-270 BC.

The oinochoe or choes of type 3 (Webster 1968, 2) belongs to a group of vases

dated to the late phase of the Gnathia style, when the oinochoai are smaller and
have poor quality decoration, limited to a vine-branch, and there is a prevalence
of ribbons on the body. For shape and decoration, the Brussels vase resembles
the oinochoe in Toronto inv. no. 923.13.119 (Hayes 1984, 144-145 no. 239),
the oinochoe in Faenza inv. no. 2128 (Sassatelli 1995, 147-148 no. 251) and
the oinochoai in Geneva inv. nos.  12907 and MF279 (Curti 1998, nos.  26
and 27), dated to end of 4th or beginning of 3rd century BC. The oinochoe in
Mannheim inv. no. Cg 354 (CVA Mannheim 2, pl. 49,1-5), belonging to the
Group D of Webster “ribbed with fruited ivy” and dated to the last quarter of
the 4th century, has larger measurements and a more elaborate decoration, of
which the Brussels oinochoe only maintains the horizontal vine-branch.

43. A731 (2204, H23) pelike

H. 46,9; diam. of rim 20,1; diam. of foot 15,4.

Restored from fragments. Surface eroded.
Covered in black metallic glaze, except for a band between body and foot, the
outer side and underside of the foot. Flaring mouth, long neck with concave
profile, globular body on a high flaring foot, vertical ribbon handles under the
rim and on the shoulder.

Gnathia style. Second/third quarter of the 3rd century BC.

The restoration carried out after the publication of the Corpus Vasorum
Antiquorum, showed that the added colour decoration was modern. J.D. Beazley,
when discussing the image of the Hellenistic type of child Eros on Gnathia vases,
had already hypothesized that the Brussels pelike had been repainted, noticing
that the Eros with elongated wings was more typical of the non-ribbed vases,
whereas it was identical to the Eros represented on red-figure Apulian pottery
(Beazley-Magi 1939, 70 no. 1). It is possible that the Apulian vases were the
iconographic model for Campana’s restorers, while vases of the Gnathia style
(Webster 1969, 63) suggested the idea for the female between spirals which was
represented on the central band on the body (see the image in Corpus Vasorum
The Brussels pelike, which Webster included in the Ribbed Group, is typical,
mainly because of the high foot, of late production when the use of ribbing was
widespread, and used either to cover the whole body or with only a band (plain
or with decoration) at the widest point. It is the so-called Phase C of Taranto,
dated from 275 to 225 BC
(Lippolis 1994, 262 and
fig.  197). For the type,
common in the Messapian
area, see Bernardini 1961,
pls. 30-35 and Forti 1965,
71-72. Similar, except for
the smaller measurements
and the shorter foot, are

in Oxford (Ashmolean 1966.345), forming part of a group of vases produced
in Attica as well as in Southern Italy during the second half of the 5th century
BC. More recently, A783 has been assigned to the South Italian production of
black-glaze mugs with aris-fluting (Williams 2000, 265-266, fig.  9). To the

Although the shape was very popular in South Italy, there are not many black-
glazed vases with the knot of Herakles on the handle: see the olpe in Leiden
inv. no. K.94/9,23 found in Nola and considered to be Athenian (CVA Leiden

Associated with series 4470 (stamnoid pyxis) and 4471 of Morel 1981, the
Campana pyxis, of small dimensions, resembles a vase in the Polish Collection
Branicki (CVA Pologne. Collections diverses, pl. 4,13), which has projections on
the shoulder and on the elevated handles. In addition, the Brussels vase is similar
to a black-glaze pyxis from Metaponto inv. no. PY2 (Carter 1998, 675-676),
which also has plastic elements on the shoulder, and was discovered in a context
dated to the middle of the 4th century BC. See also the pyxis in Tübingen inv.

50. A768 (2241, H60) cup

H. 4,7; diam. rim 8,7; width max 15,6; diam. foot 4,8.
Restored from fragments. Warped rim. Missing piece on one handle.
Encrustations on the surface.
Covered in black glaze with a blue metallic sheen, except for a reserved band
between the body and foot and the underside of the foot. Straight rim, shallow
bowl, ring foot, and round horizontal handles at rim.

Apulian. Second half of the 4th century BC.

Numerous two-handled cups, often associated with oinochoai, have been

discovered in the rich Hellenistic tombs of Taranto. The Brussels cup belongs
to Phase B1, between 325 and 300 BC (Lippolis 1994, 246, 247 fig.  184).
See the cups in Taranto inv. nos.  199.315 and 199.316 (Dell’Aglio 1996,
330 nos. 320-321), a very similar cup from a votive depot of Taranto (Lippolis

51. A761 (2234, H53) plate

H. 4,3; diam. of rim 22; diam. of foot 7.

Intact, but slight restoration on the rim. Encrustation on surface.
Dull black glaze. Shallow bowl with a rim that turns in slightly, ring foot. Incised
and impressed decoration on the tondo: within concentric circles four stamps in
combination with two lotus buds and two palmettes.

Campanian. Second half of the 4th century BC.

The plate is associated with the shape 4241b 1 of Morel 1981. The impressed

Minor lacunas on the rim and shoulder. Surface encrusted and worn.
Dull black glaze. Elongated ovoid body with a trefoil mouth and a distinct
shoulder, elevated handles with projections. At the upper point of the handle
attachment a human protome, at the lower a bearded protome. On the body,
pairs of vertical grooves.

Southern Etruria. Second half of the 4th century BC.

Mingazzini (1971) listed comparanda for the Brussels vase, examples with
and without ribbing on the body, and considered them to be produced at
Taranto, while Beazley (1947), Montagna Pasquinucci (1972, shapes 144
and 146) and Morel (1981, series 5611) believed them to be Etruscan. A closer
comparison for A739 is the oinochoe from the Castellani Collection in the Villa
Giulia (inv. no. 50373) which corresponds to 5611f of Morel 1981.

Small surface chips. Lustrous black glaze with a blue sheen. ◊
Interior of the neck glazed. Trefoil mouth, globular ribbed body, ring foot.
Elevated handle with a scale decoration; a ram’s protome for the upper handle
terminal, with incised fleece at the base, and a human protome with beard and

red berries on the shoulder. Alternate red and white dots between the upper ends
of ribs.

Volterra D, Malacena Group. Group of Vienna 0.565 (J.D. Beazley). Last

quarter of the 4th century BC.

The trefoil and ribbed oinochoe (shape III), with elevated handle and protome at
the attachments, is very similar to a vase from Nola in the Museum of Edinburgh
inv. no.  1881.44.25 (CVA Edinburgh, pl.  50,1-3). See also the oinochoe in
Volterra inv. no. 532, an imitation of Type Volterra D (shape 145 Montagna
Pasquinucci 1972; type 5646a1 of Morel 1981), a shape common in the
Gnathia style (Forti 1965, 65, 71; Bernardini 1961, pls. 41-44), with variants
in the profile of handle and body. Similar to the Brussels vase also is an oinochoe
in Kassel, which is however considered to be Apulian (Yfantidis 1990, 270-271
no. 196).

Restored from fragments.
Black glaze with slightly metallic sheen all over, except for the underside of the
foot where the the glaze is of a different black and much worn. The varnish
on the body was probably applied by Campana’s restorers to make the vase
appear more uniform. Around the middle of the neck and on the shoulder is a
horizontal groove; vertical grooves on the body. Handle with a moulding on the
exterior; a bearded head at the lower point of the handle attachment, and a head
in a poor state of conservation at the upper point.

Volterra. End of the 4th century BC.

The Brussels vase resembles the ribbed oinochoe inv. no.  15614 (Caliò 2000,
no.  899), mainly the handle with a moulding and a silen head at the lower
attachment and a youth head on the upper. Several examples have the elevated
handle, classified as shape 144 of Volterra and dated from the end of the 4th to
the first half of the 3rd century BC (Montagna Pasquinucci 1972, 438-445)
and as series 5611 of Morel 1981: see, for instance, the oinochoe of the Museo
Gregoriano Etrusco inv. no. 39591 (Buranelli 1997, no. 188). The Brussels vase
can be also associated with a non-ribbed oinochoe inv. no. 2056 from the Tomb
995 in Spina (Poggio 1974, no.  118), with a male head at the lower handle
attachment attributed to the Group of Vienna 0.565 (Beazley 1947, 256).

tree and two birds; on right, on the top of the wolf, a cartouche with retrogade

Plate: Apulian. Second half of the 4th century BC.

Medallion: Campanian. Second half of 3rd century BC.

The vase was restored in 1978, when the medallion was separated from the plate
(MRAH-KMKG, Restoration file).
A760, associated with series 2237 of Morel 1981, an Italic production probably
of Central Apulia, is close to a plate found in the Tomb 3/1981 from Bitonto
(Riccardi 2003, 123 no. 48).
The scene on the medallion, which belongs to the earlier Calenian production
(Dulière 1979, 71, note 194), represents the female wolf suckling the twins;
behind the animal, the ficus ruminalis and two birds, which played an important
role in saving the founders of Rome (Dulière 1979, 69-70), are represented.

Medallion: Campanian. Second half of the 3rd century BC.

The black glaze plate is associated with series 1443 of Morel 1981, a Campanian
production dated to the 2nd century BC. Comparanda can be seen on a plate
in Tours inv. no. 863.2.90 (CVA Tours et Bourges, Tours IV, pl. 24,2), formely
belonging to the Campana Collection.
Like several Campana plates in the Louvre (CVA Louvre 15), the two vases
in Brussels are pastiches created by Campana’s restorers by inserting a relief
medallion into a black-glaze plate, generally of Italic production, which was
specifically cut.
To the medallion with the female wolf and twins in Brussels, British Museum,
Heidelberg University and San Petersburg, mentioned by Dulière (1979, 68,
nos. 173-175), we add the example published in Pedroni (1968, no. 673). The
Brussels medallions are smaller than the others. Moreover, Dulière emphasises
the high quality of A759, about which she writes: “il pourrait avoir été moulé
directement sur un modèle métallique et non, comme les autres, sur un précédent
moulage” (Dulière 1979, 69).

H. 5,1, to top of handle 6,8; diam. of rim 12,1; width with handles 19,2; diam.
of foot 7,3.
Minor restoration on the rim and near the point of the handle attachment. One
handle is modern. Chips in the interior and on the handle. ◊
Metallic black glaze all over, except for the underside of the foot where fingermarks
from dipping are visible. Straight rim, hemispherical bowl, ring moulded foot,
round up-turned handles. Inside, a head of Athena in relief facing left. On the
Corinthian helmet, the letter A. The goddess carries a spear and a shield. Around
the head is an impressed motif combining ten palmettes, alternating groups of
two circles and four rings of roulette-hatching. An incised line all round in the
middle of the bowl.

Campanian. 3rd century BC.

The cup on a low moulded foot with the characteristic up-turned handles and
the impressed and incised decoration in the middle of the bowl is associated
with the shape 4241b1 of Morel 1981. It is similar to the so-called Arethusa
cups, with the representation of the head of the nymph inspired from the
iconography of Sicilian coins. For such productions, known also as Calenian
vases, frequent in Campania (CVA Louvre 15, 19), see more recently Pedroni
2001. The Brussels cup presents the image of the goddess Athena, instead of the
more frequent head of Arethusa, for which, for instance, see CVA Louvre 15, IV

Central and South Etruria. Middle of the 3rd century BC.

In the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, A762 was considered to be Campanian, but

Morel (1981, 129 F1644a 1) has shown that it is an Etruscan black-glaze vase
dated to the middle of the 3rd century BC.

South Etruria. Second half of the 3rd century BC.

The patera shape 63 (Montagna Pasquinucci 1972, 351; Morel 1981, espèce
2170 series 2172) is a characteristic production of Southern Etruria. Montagna
Pasquinucci 1972 mentioned two principal types and make a link between the
Brussels patera and that with the rim slightly turning inwards and the navel quite
squeezed. A764 has only four stamps, whereas generally they have more or none
at all (Hayes 1984, no. 142). The Campana patera resembles an example in the
Guglielmi collection, produced in Southern Etruria and dated to the second half
of the 3rd century BC (Buranelli 1997, no. 186), one in Parma (CVA Parma 2,

Moulded terracotta protome in the form of the forequarters of a horse; forelegs

Canosan. 4th -3rd century BC.

The forelegs and the hoofs of the horse’s protome were removed as modern
by the restorers of the MRAH-KMKG under the direction of Professor J.‑C.
Balty, as we read in the file of A748 at the Museum: “Le nettoyage de la pièce
a montré que le vase est composé de deux parties qui ne s’appartiennent pas et
sont réunies par des fragm. modernes”.
The piece was part of the sculpted decoration of a Canosan vase, like another
horse’s protome from the Campana Collection, now in the Louvre (inv. no. Cp
4726, Besques 1986,145, pl. 157,7 no. D4125, Cp 4726). They are appliques for
the characteristic Canosan askoi, rich in plastic and polychromatic decoration.
See also the two horse’s protomes of the Lagioia Collection (Giacobello 2004,

Canosan vases were possibly acquired by the Marquis through the antiquarians
and dealers who dealt with objects coming from 19th century excavations in
Canosa (see Sarti 2001, 78-79).

69. A745/A (2218, H37) vase in the form of a pigmy

H. 18,5; diam. of rim 3,9; diam. of foot 9,6.

Restored from fragments. Terracotta, hollow interior, made at the potter’s wheel
and from a mould. Glaze almost entirely lost, but a few traces of black paint
remain on the mouth, the hair of the pygmy and on the base; remains of white
on the bird. ◊
Pygmy carrying a bird (crane or swan) over the shoulder.

South Italian. 4th century BC.

The restoration of the 1970s resulted in the removal of some sherds, ancient but
not belonging, such as the mouth and the base (fig. 10).
A745/A is very similar to the Apulian vase Naples inv. no. Stg. 51, dated to the
beginning of the 4th century BC (Lista 1996, 186 no. 13.16), which preserves
the black glaze on the pygmy and “U” motives and small dots on the feathers of
the crane. The bird represented on the Brussels vase seems rather to be a swan
(Hoffmann 1997, 158), as the traces of white colour suggest. This kind of vase,
together with rhyta in the form of a negro attacking a crocodile (RVAp II, 614,
74,21/4), were made in Southern Italy in imitation of the Attic vases by the
potter Sotades, for which see Hoffmann 1997.

70. A742 (2215, H34) satyr-head vase

Head: h. 13,6; diam. of rim 6,2; diam. of foot 8,3.

Neck: h. 7; diam. of rim 8,3; diam. of foot 6,5.
Head: rim rasped; traces of paint on the rim of the base which is rasped and
without the standing surface. White on the beard and hair.
Small horns on the forehead, and pointed ears. Part of the nape, which was the
point of attachment of the handle, is rasped. The ribbon, black-glazed handle is
restored from fragments.
Neck: restored from fragments, traces of rasping on the rim of the base. Black
glaze on the exterior and in the interior in the middle. Traces of white on the
surface. Amazon fighting a griffin.

Head: Etruscan. Second half of the 4th century BC.

Neck: South Italian (Taranto). Middle of the 4th century BC.

The 1960s restoration showed that the Campana vase (see the image in Corpus
Vasorum Antiquorum) was a 19th century pastiche, created by combining the neck
of a Tarantine vessel and an Etruscan head (Zervoudaki 1968, 46).
The neck, decorated in relief with an Amazon attacking a griffin, can be added to
the list compiled by H. Hoffmann, which includes a rhyton in the Louvre (H96,
Hoffmann 1966, 101, no.  86), which belonged to the Campana Collection
and mentioned in the Cataloghi Campana (serie IX-X sala G no. 11). However,
its cup, with a relief representing two warriors attacking a gryph, is modern.
The Brussels vase resembles a neck decorated in relief belonging to a rhyton in
the form of a head from the Santangelo Collection in Naples inv. no. Stg. 66,
of Apulian production, dated to the middle of the 4th century BC (Lista 1996,

H. 7,1; length 13,3.

Mouth missing; remains of the point of attachment on the back. Remains of
black glaze on the boots. ◊
Bearded figure, nude save for boots, reclining, with the right arm over the head
and holding a ribbed mug, in which is a hole for pouring liquid. With the left
he grasps the neck of a goatskin on which he rests.

Apulian. Second half of the 4th century BC.

The mouth and handle, both ancient but not belonging, were additions of
Campana’s atelier (fig.  10). The 1970s restoration also removed the modern
varnish, the purpose of which was probably to make the surface of the vase more
The small vase in the form of a nude Silen who reclines on a goatskin, carries
a mug with the right and the neck of the goatskin with the left, is very similar
to the Apulian plastic vase in the Santangelo Collection Naples inv. no. Stg. 52
(Lista 1996, 188 no. 13.30), dated to middle of the 4th century BC. The latter
has very similar features, mainly in the details of the face, to the Brussels vase,
both representing a Silen, bearded and with incipient baldness, nude except for
the boots.
Close comparisons can also be made with the sitting Silen in Toronto inv.
no. 983.123.11 (Hayes 1992, 85, no. 90), who however holds a small figure,
perhaps the child Dionysos; the sitting Silen of Copenhague inv. no. 8 (CVA
Copenhague 7, pl. 294,2), represented in the act of drinking from the goatskin
which he holds between his legs; a sitting Silen, as well as a reclining Silen
(Sichtermann 1966, nos. 118-119, pl. 160); a kneeling Silen from Metaponto
dated to the end 4th – beginning 3rd century BC (De Siena 2002, 32 no. 140);
and the plastic vase inv. no.  B89 in Karlsruhe (CVA Karlsruhe 3, pl.  48,3-

Plastic animal-head vases

72. A749 (2222, H41) ram’s head vase

Length 13,4; width max 5,9.

Mended from fragments, rasped on the rear. Fragmentary right ear. Encrustations
on the face, white for the hair rendered à la barbotine, traces of brown paint on
the horns. ♦

Apulian (?). 4th century BC.

The vase published in Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum is one of the numerous

pastiches of the Campana Collection, created by Campana’s restorers by joining
various ancient pieces. It combines a ram’s head, a mouth, a round handle and a
foot of different South Italian vases (see Appendix).
The Brussels ram bears close comparison with an Apulian example in Kassel,
from the collection of Dr Munk (Hoffmann 1966, 31 no. 57, pl. 55,1), which
also has a neck which does not belong. See also the Apulian ram of the collection
of Kostka Potocki (Dobrowolski 2007, 263 no. 77). Despite the comparanda,
the openings of the Brussels head suggest that it could be a bent-rhyton, which
is known only in Athenian production: Hoffmann 1961, 21-26; Guy 1981,
2-15; Shapiro 1981, no. 32.

73. A747 (2220, H39) dimidiating animal-head cup

Length 21; diam. rim 8,9.

Intact, except for the boar’s ear. White chalky slip inside and outside, added
colour for the purple laurel wreath on the neck.
Modelled from the two halves of a boar’s and a hound’s head; a cylindrical
wheel-made neck ends in a gently flaring mouth. A flat strap handle is attached
at the back. The hound’s and boar’s ears, and the details of the boar’s head (thick,
flat snout, tusks, short crest) are hand-modelled and added. The mouth is not

Daunian (Canosa). Last quarter of the 4th century BC.

The vase is a rare example of dimidiating animal-head cups, which display a

combination of animals, two semi-heads of animals, here a boar and a hound,
for which see Hoffmann 1966, 81 nos.  484-485, 101. The Brussels vase is
similar to the Apulian red-figure vase inv. no. 1241 in the Bibliothèque Nationale
in Paris (Hoffmann 1966, 81 no. 485). Although the two vases differ in the
rendering of neck, handles and decoration, they probably shared the prototype
for the animal heads.
Numerous examples of animal-head cups exist in terracotta, sometimes with a
white slip on the surfaces: Hayes 1992, nos. 175-177; Depalo 1977, no. 189;
Froning 1982, no. 139; Padgett et alii 1993, no. 31; Vickers 1999, no. 53.
The use of a white slip and of unfired colours suggest that the Brussels vase could
be a Canosa production, for which see De Juliis 1997, 141-146.

74. A746 (2219, H38) deer-head vase

Neck: h. 7; diam. of rim 11.

Restored from fragments.
Black glaze inside. Female sitting to left carries a fan in the right hand and a box
in the left; she wears a chiton and the hair is tied up in a ornamented sakkos. In
front of the woman, a long sash hangs.
Head: length 17,1; diam. of rim 6,6; max width 14,2.
Ears glued. Rim polished. On the rear, traces of the handle attachment. Traces
of black glaze. Deer with horns emerging.

Apulian (Taranto). End of the 4th century BC.

In the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum only the neck was published as the deer’s
head was considered a fake. However, Robinson (1930, 262 no.  605) had
mentioned it in his catalogue of the Toronto museums as comparison for a
rhyton, although he was wrong in the identification of the animal: “Rhyton in
form of a cow’s head of Apulian Style… R446, A746, A747 in Brussels” (see
Hayes 1992, no. 175).
It is one of the numerous pastiches created by Campana’s restorers, combining
a bowl (shape II of Hoffmann) quite similar to those which belong to this
kind of animal’s head in Tarantine production, which generally have the head in
black glaze. The Brussels deer’s head, with the modern varnish mostly removed
although some remains on the neck, still shows traces of the original black glaze.
The fawn with emerging horns, which must have been black-glazed, resembles
the Apulian vase inv. no. 377 at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Paris (CVA Palais des
Beaux-Arts de la ville de Paris, pl. 40,4 and 8) associated with the “Main Group”
by Hoffmann (1966, 62 no.  378). Quite similar, but covered with a white
slip, is the example in Düsseldorf inv. 1973-1178 (CVA Nordrhein-Westfalen 1,
pl.  29,3-4). See also the vase at the Capodimonte Museum in Naples, inv.
no. M. 6712 (De Caro 1996, 213-214 no. 3 fig. 29).
The neck is comparable, in shape and decoration, to that of a vase with a male
head in Vercelli attributed to the Menzies Group (Cambitoglou 1997, no. 24).

75. A744 (2217, H36) vase in the shape of a Silen’s head

H. 16,6, with handle 17,7; width of mouth 12,7; diam. of foot 7,7.
Head of a Silen restored with the mouth of a trefoil oinochoe, created from
ancient fragments and repainted. Brown paint for the beard and hair, ears
(the tips are missing, and the left ear is glued), pupils; white paint for the
hair, eyes and teeth.Next to the handle, traces of fillings.

The moulded part of the vase could belong to one of the Silen-head
kantharoi, frequent in Attic production, more rare in South Italy:
Beazley 1929, 74, and Sichtermann 1966, nos. 120-127, pls. 161-167.
Although the rendering of the face seems unusual, there is no further
evidence to suggest that it is a creation of Campana’s atelier of forgery
and restoration.
To the head has been added the mouth of an Italiote trefoil oinochoe
decorated with a reserved band with an ivy branch, very frequent in
Italiote pottery.

• Unpublished.
