  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Agora P 226.
  • CAVI Lemma: base of BG skyphos. From Athens. Unattributed. Second quarter fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Rays at bottom{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, Grr. along margins, one at the top, the other at the bottom: Αισχεα ΠΣ | Nικανορ [[ΠΣ lig., see below]].
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Corinthian type, cf. Hesp. 5 (1936) 340, fig. 8, top row, center.
  • CAVI Comments: Lang's reading; she considers the Grr. as written on the sherd, which seems doubtful. She thinks perhaps a "tag" accompanying a consignment, weighing 5 staters, belonging to Aischeas and perhaps certified by Nikanor; or sent by Nikanor, son of Aischeas. V.&S. classify the inscription under love names, taking the sigma for the final letter of Aischeas, written over another letter which was started there by mistake.: Αισχεα(ς) | Nικανορ. - For the gen. in -α (if that is right) cf. AttScr (1990), no. 480, p. 181. The `numeral' pi with sigma written within is a bit peculiar in that the pi has almost equal verticals and is very narrow while the sigma (which is four-stroke) is large.
