  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Klaffenbach thought of με]δεṓσε̅ι, Peek suggested the rough restorations; I have made some changes.
  • CAVI Comments: A potter's dedication? - Peek restores line 1 as a dedicatory hexameter which includes the phrase: πόλεος με]δεṓσει, but the phrase should be [Ἀθε̅νᾶ] Ἀθε̅νν μεδεṓσε̅ι, which does not scan. His restoration of line 2 is also unlikely, since it does not scan. - For μεδεṓσε̅ι cf. the Samian horoi with Ἀθηνᾶ Ἀθηνῶν μεδέο̅σα (reff. in AttScr (1990), 137) and IG i/2. 14, lines 4-5.
