Deutsch: Apollo und sein Rabe. Innerseite von einer attischen weißgrundigen Kylix, Pistoxenos-Maler (andere Zuschreibungen gehen an den Berliner Maler und an Onesimos), ca. 460 v. Chr. Aus einem Grab in Delphi. Dm. 18 cm. Museum von Delphi, Inv. 8140, Saal XII.
English: Apollo wearing a laurel or myrtle wreath, a white peplos and a red himation and sandals, seating on a lion-pawed diphros; he holds a kithara in his left hand and pours a libation with his right hand. Facing him, a black bird identified as a pigeon, a jackdaw, a crow (which may allude to his love affair with Coronis) or a raven (a mantic bird). Tondo of an Attic white-ground kylix attributed to the Pistoxenos Painter (or the Berlin Painter, or Onesimos). Diam. 18 cm (7 in.). From a tomb (probably that of a priest) in Delphi. Archaeological Museum of Delphi, Inv. 8140, room XII.
Français : Apollon portant une couronne de laurier ou de myrte, un péplos blanc, un himation rouge et une paire de sandales est assis sur un diphros aux pieds de lion. Il tient une cithare dans la senestre et verse une libation de la dextre. Face à lui un oiseau noir identifié à un pigeon, un choucas, une corneille (allusion possible à sa liaison avec Coronis) ou un corbeau (oiseau aux pouvoirs mantiques). Médaillon d'un kylix attique à fond blanc d'attribution incertaine (Peintre de Pistoxénos, Peintre de Berlin ou Onésimos ?), v. 460 av. J.-C. D. 18 cm. Provenance : une tombe à Delphes, vraisemblablement celle d'un prêtre. Musée archéologique de Delphes, Inv. 8140, salle XII.
