  • CAVI Inscriptions: Int.: to left and right of the youth's head, following the margins: καλος, retr. and hο ^ παις{1}. Under the foot, Gr.: ligature of alpha and Attic gamma(?).
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} I am not certain that this reading, from the photo, is correct. Paribeni says in the text: παις καλος.
  • CAVI Comments: The Gr. could also be a ligature of mu with alpha inserted. Not in Johnston (1979). The two Fiesole cups must be from the same workshop.
