  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} tomb 113.
  • CAVI Comments: Probably in Reggio Calabria. The above readings are taken from the dr. in NSc. and are no doubt not completely reliable. NSc. thinks the inscriptions hide names; the last is indeed similar to names like Hybridemos, Hybrilides, Hybristes (PA 13,895-97). The gammas may stand for pi's.
