In a recent volume of this journal (BICS 32 (1985), 49f.) I discussed a stamnos by the Triptolemos Painter, arguing that the dead ram for which two warriors are there shown disputing should be interpreted as a divinely-arranged substitute for the corpse of Patroklos. Since then I have noticed a piece which looks like a second illustration of the subject:
Malibu, J. Paul Getty Museum 86.AE.213. Attic rf calyx-krater fragment, dated by the Museum to c.430 and (as the Curator of Antiquities, Dr Marion True, informs me) attributed by Dr Elfriede Knauer to the Geneva Painter. Upper register: 1., figure standing astride a ram and cutting its throat; r., two duelling warriors. Lower register: two warriors lay a corpse in front of a standing naked hero armed with spears, who siezes his head in grief. The fragment is here reproduced, by kind permission, as Plate 7.
