  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} for Κλειταγορα. Cf. Threatte (1980), 190ff.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscription after ARV[2]. - Beazley lists Labotos with a question mark; LGPN ii lists the name as Λαβωτος (only here). Λαβωτας is the Doric form of Λεωβωτης (see Pape); the latter accused Themistocles in 471 (see PA 9071). I do not understand the ending -ος (miswritten?). I wonder if Κλιταγορα should not be read as a masculine dative: Λαβοτ(α)ς καλος Κλιταγορα[ι], sc. δοκει. But Kleitagora also appears as a feminine name (Acr. ii, 1445), once with καλη (Mississippi, University, ex Robinson). Hence the name could be a kale-name, without the adjective (cf. LGPN ii). Both Labot(a)s and Kleitagora(s) seem to have Spartan connections; see Pape. - It is not clear to me, whether Beazley thinks Κλιταγορα is a fem. or a masculine name; he cites the vase together with other names in -αγορα[ς].
