  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the outside of the wall, written on the sherd, Gr.: Μενεδεμος Χαριας Ξανθες Αμφιβολος Προταρχος Πενταριστε Καλ[λ]ιστρατε
  • CAVI Comments: Found with 15,208, q.v. - Mixed alphabet: Ionic letters are xi and lambda. Despite that, the letter forms are more old-fashioned than P 15,208 and not by the same hand. Both graffiti ought to be erotic. Cartwheel theta intended.- V.&S. state that Xanthes is unknown in Attica [but see now LGPN ii] except for IG i/2. 377,3, where the person is thought to be a Delian; the name is also found on coins of Klazomenai; see Collitz, SGDI 5, 610,8. Amphiboulos appears in Eretria in the 4th C.; IG XII,9, 249,b,97. It is uncertain wether we have here this name [so LGPN ii] or the unattested Amphibolos. - Lang and V.&S. give a parallel for Pentariste: AJA 51 (1947) 368 (grave stone published by D.M. Robinson). But see now LGPN ii under Παντ- and Πενταριστη.
