  • CAVI Collection: Unlocated.(1).
  • CAVI Lemma: foot of cup of type C. Unattributed. Beginning fifth. Ca. 480{2}.
  • CAVI Subject: No figured decoration preserved.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Gr.: Vickers and Jeffery: μυσοστο : Ἀπόλλονι : ἀντὶ μιᾶς δύο :. Matthaiou: Μῦς Ὄ̅στο̅ Ἀπόλλονι ἀντὶ μιᾶς δύο. Vickers and Jeffery: the inscription is not Attic; it could be Aeginetan, but a Sicilian origin is not excluded (Jeffery). Matthaiou 78 thinks the inscription Attic. Perhaps mixed alphabet? Ionic lambda and sigma.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} USA, Private. {2} compared by Vickers and Jeffery with Sparkes–Talcott (1970), 265/412, which is there dated ca. 480. Jeffery, by letter, dates the inscription ca. 470 plus or minus, and the vase earlier.
  • CAVI Comments: The foot has a rattle: an X-ray shows 10 pieces and the opening through which they had been inserted. Jeffery interprets the inscription in two possible ways: {1} Μυσὸς το̃[ι] ... `The Mysian' as a proper name. Two errors are assumed: omission of iota and misplacement of punctuation. {2} μυσσοτά. Cf. Hsch. μυσσωτά· γελοῖα. Misspelled as μυσοστο. `A pair of jokes for Apollo: two rattling cups(?) for Apollo'. Matthaiou: Ὤστης is an unknown name. (This reading is meant to correct Jeffery.) LGPN ii reads Μυσός after Jeffery. The last word is written larger to fill out the circle.
