  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} nu reversed. {2} disjointed alpha. {3} D-shaped rho.
  • CAVI Comments: Done from the photo in AttScr, so far as visible. From same tomb as Adolphseck 135? (Brommer). Svenbro rightly illustrates this vase as an example of an erotic reader. - A parallel: Ferrara, Museo Nazionale di Spina T 381. RF volute krater, Altamura Painter, ARV[2] 589/3, 1660, Para. (1971), 393, Add. 129 (bibl.), AttScr (1990), no. 672. - CVA gives parallels for a youth at a stele: see Chamoux, who explains all as palaestra scenes, but Brommer thinks perhaps not always true. B. adds: Adolphseck 62, q.v.; Mainz 114.
