  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Williams attributes the cup to Euphronios. {2} Bothmer has the kalos retr.; ARV[2] has καλον, not retr.; Williams, καλος, not retr.; perhaps the letter was a sideways sigma. The kalos starts under the rho and is written in two groups: κα and λος. Both words are unevenly spaced.
