  • CAVI Subject: Amazonomachy: parts of a warrior; head and helmet of a fallen Amazon.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Above the Amazon's head and below the warrior's raised leg: [--]ρ̣υκιλα{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} of uncertain type. {2} may be by the same hand as P 13,257 (Bothmer; Moore–Pease (1986), 312/1803). {3} the sketch in Moore–Pease (1986), p. 312, shows the right half of an English M for the first letter.
  • CAVI Comments: Large letters. V. reads rho, but says alpha, delta, or sigma also possible. I think it is a triangular rho. No doubt the name of the Amazon. Bothmer compares "perhaps" Χ...ιλα on Arezzo 1465, by Euphronios. [--]ρ̣υκιλ[λ]α?
