  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} ARV[2] 1707: Thetis and her sister Nereids. {2} BCH says Thetis, the ph. shows [.]ετις. {3} so L.-H. P. 250 shows that this is the writing on the vase. Meant for Κυματοδοκε(?). BCH also says: Γαληνη. Γλαυκη. Κυμοθοη. Μελιτη. I do not know how reliable these readings are.
  • CAVI Comments: L.-H. 249 thinks the scene are the Epaulia of the Wedding of Peleus and Thetis. - Mixed alphabet. Xi 1 with vertical extending above and below the horizontals if L.-H.'s rendering in cat. is correct.
