  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, in a complete, but irregular circle, Gr.: Μιλωνος ειμι.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Sparkes–Talcott (1970); V.&S. say second quarter, Lang, early fifth.
  • CAVI Comments: The letters get larger toward the end (to fill the circle). The writing is rather rough. An early graffito in the Ionic alphabet. V.&S. and Lang think he is perhaps the Milo who appears as kalos on Naples 2617, ARV[2] 65/108, a RF cup by Oltos. But I wonder if our man is not an Ionian.
