  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} glaze in band on rim and top of shoulder; inside unglazed. Wide mouth.
  • CAVI Comments: Unintelligible. Listed by Lang as an unclassified notation. She prints: υ]παιθριος οβολο[ς, with the comment: "But why a "spit in the open air"? A cook-out? Or is it υπαιθριος ο βολος?" βολος is a throw or a catch; this may be right and the line poetic? - The first omicron seems to have been added later; the third has a short vertical line within. Rather good writing.
