  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the floor, Gr.: λοπαδη dish μεγαλη : | large 1 ημιοπ[α] : ΙΙ half-size 2 [ο]βηλιαι : ΙΙ long loaves 2 [χ]α̣ρτη̣[ς] papyrus roll?{1}. ----------
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Lang, who explains: λοπαδη presumably alternate form for λοπας; ημιοπος, cf. Aesch. fr. 91 (something small) and Galen 13, 558. V.&S. differ somewhat: λοπαδη μεγαλη ημιθ̣[ ] #(a) ο̣βηλιαι #(b) αρτη -------(a): # = 8. (b): # = 5. They explain: λοπαδες μεγαλαι ημιθ̣[ραυστοι?] #(a). οβελιαι αρτοι #(b).
  • CAVI Comments: The readings seem uncertain. A list. V.&S. think the mistakes are due to the writer being a foreigner and perhaps a slave; found in Roman fill near the Tholos (where there was a public slave, IG ii/2. 1-13); no doubt a list of kitchen equipment in the Tholos. Unclear how much of this Lang would agree to.
