  • Last Recorded Collection: Berlin, Antikensammlung: F4017
  • CAVI Collection: Berlin 4017.
  • CAVI Lemma: A small bell. From Athens, near Hagia Triada, 189 (Furtw.). Unattributed. Uncertain date. Late sixth (GAI). *Furtw Beschreibung, no. 4017, pl. VII, fig. 235. Stamires and Vanderpool, Hesp. 19 (1950) 385, n. 24. GAI i, 48 and 176. Script 1153.
  • CAVI Subject: No figured decoration. A bespoken piece. NOT A VASE.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On a reserved band bordered by raised plastic mouldings are a row of double dots, and in BG, facing the handle on top, is: [b] Αιαντιδω[/b] :* [b] ειμι[/b].
  • CAVI Comments: GAI wrongly calls it a kothon. For parallels see Agora 12, p. 184, and for lists, ibid., n. 3. The two examples from the Agora (1365-66, pl. 44) are there dated ca. 480; 1365 seems to be similar to the Berlin bell. Omega for omicron upsilon. Aiantides: PA 289 (4th cent.); other reff. in LGPN ii, but not ours. Attic alphabet. Omega = ou.
