  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of large BG amphora. From Athens. Unattributed. First quarter sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: {1} Gr. at one edge, cut so that the letters are only half preserved in height: ΕΡ̣ΡΙΙΙΙ{1}. {2} horizontally in the center of the sherd, upside down in relation to {1} , Gr.: Πραχσ[ι]νε vac.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so V.&S.; Lang reads: Ευ̣ρυ̣τε̣, a mythical name, but the dr. on pl. 7 shows: ΕΙ̣ΡΡΙΙ (all letters except the epsilon incomplete). A mythical name is unlikely here.
  • CAVI Comments: Names-on-sherd. The sherd first broken (no doubt accidentally) then reused. None of the readings of {1} seem reliable. Πραξινη is the fem. form of Πραξινος (see LGPN ii). Πρηξινος is known from Troezen, Hdt. 7.180 and the Suda (Pape).
