  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of BG skyphos{1}. From Athens. Unattributed. Fourth quarter fifth (context).
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On inside, Gr.: Σοσινεο[ς] | επεστελε | Γλαυκοι | ες αστυ | ενδεσμο̣[ν].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} for the type see Hesp. 5 (1936) 340, fig. 8, lower row; 3rd - 4th quarter fifth (V.&S.). {2} V.&S. read the last line as ενα ΒΣΜ (with three-stroke sigma), which is unlikely.
  • CAVI Comments: The open omicron in Γλαυκοι is probably not an omega. Is the beta shape of epsilon in ενδεσμο̣[ν] due to foreign influence? (Cf. AttScr). Lang calls the inscription, which is clearly written on the sherd and which I think is complete at end because of the position of the last omicron, a "tag" or message, but Robert saw that επεστελε means that it is a letter. Translate: "Sosineos to Glaukos: a bundle into the city (sc. I have sent)." Sosineos: IG i/2. 671 and 999 = DAA 42 and IG i/3. 1195. Lang translates: "Sosineos sent a bundle to Glaukos in town."
