  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} from a tomb at Capo Soprano. {2} The inscription is given in capitals by Orsi and I am not sure that I have transcribed it correctly.
  • CAVI Comments: Orsi says that the vase is Attic. The inscription was discovered during a washing, some time after the excavation. Orsi thinks it false. De Sanctis says that Σενοφιλος [for Ξενοφιλος] is impossible for the fifth century [but I thought it could be a misreading for a xi written with a comma beteen two horizontal lines.] Orsi reports other forgeries in this article. Western alphabet.
