  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} it ought to be a squat lekythos, as E 701 and E 703 are. {2} C. Smith says: `style of Meidias.'
  • CAVI Comments: Thalia is a Muse, a Nereid (in Sicily), a Grace, a human (PA 6569, IG ii, 1761), etc. What is going on? Wrongly listed by Fränkel as a maenad, as K.-D. points out. Alpha with vertical cross stroke? Theta lacks the dot?
