  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} First half of seventh (Jeffery,implied by Lang). Seven or sixth (Vanderpool).
  • CAVI Comments: I think that the inscription is clearly sixth century. -Vanderpool thinks it is perhaps a vote for the banishment of Peisistratus the tyrant delivered in the Areopagus; it could also refer to P. the archon in 669/8; see further, pp. 407-408. Further, Hesp. 8 (1939) 63, and Annuario 3-4 n.s. (1941-42) 118-24. There is no external evidence for the date [of the Gr.], the only diagnostic letter is alpha, which looks early with its curved leg; parallels exist in 7th cent. vase inscriptions (so Vanderpool; but see AttScr (1990), 23/79 and 132 (shape 8)). Three-stroke sigma (once) and four-stroke (twice).
