  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the Ext., just below the rim, in a taenia with tassels(1), Gr.: [ο δεινα τοι Ηφαισ]τοι ^ ανεθηκεν.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} I think the taenia is incised too. Only the tassel at the right is preserved, but there is a vertical divider after Ηφαισ]τοι. {2} not entered in CAVI, as no number is given here and it is not a vase.
  • CAVI Comments: For the vase shape, cf. Agora P 10,577, Sparkes–Talcott (1970), 241/70, pl. 4, dated 425-400. For inscriptions in a taenia see the Jacobsthal Festschrift and Dow (1930), 63-72, pls. 1-2. The restoration was suggested by V.&S. (as "not the only possible one"), after a dedication to Hephaestus on a roof tile(2) found about 20m away (Hesp. 8 (1939) 214-15); it is followed by Lang. A deeply incised ornamental inscription in clear and even letters. Mixed alphabet.
