45.10.1 A.C. Smith. The lotus bud is quite unusual, and this and other decorative elements relate this epichysis to the Egg and Wave Group, a workshop that specialised in small vases and was related to he Iliupersis Painter. There is also a slight resemblance to the work of the Lampas Group, followers of the plain style: cf. Scottsdale, Cutler Collection (RVAp 11/206a). Although no other epichyses have been attributed to this group/artist, the group seems to represent the work of a versatile artist, influenced by the Truro and Lecce Painters and associates, who favored smaller vases, specialising in single figures, often animals, surrounded by ornament of the type shown on this epichysis, especially tendrils, buds, and bulls-eyes, with large added white dots. Cf. especially Karlsruhe B 938 (RVAp 10/232) and New London, Lyman Allyn Museum 1955.1.83 (RVAp 10/234). 2004.99.0028.jpg
