- Venit: 'Near the Swing Painter, if not by the painter himself. May be restored on the analogy of a scene on an amphora, New York 17.230.8 (ABV 307,55, side B; CVA United States 12: pl.27 fig.2), by the Swing Painter. The right-hand helmet crest and the spear belong to the warrior standing beside the chariot, the left-hand helmet and spearbutt belong to the warrior standing in the chariot. For the attribution, also compare the New York vase. On the New York amphora the right-hand warrior wears plumes on his helmet, and the helmet crest of the left-hand warrior is bordered in white. The ornament above the sceme, a palmette-lotus festoon, appears much like similar ornament drawn by the painter. Compare, for example, Cincinnati 1959.1 (Paralipomena 134, 23 ter; Boardman ABFV fig.143).'
