  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. Acr. ii, 863.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of alabastron (RF?). From Athens. Unattributed. Date unclear.
  • CAVI Subject: Mouth only; no decoration preserved.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the topside of the mouth, a circular inscription: Outer circle: κ[.](.)οσυομθε. Inner circle: σολα. Graef–Langlotz, text: καλος|εκ...οσλομθ. Peek: perhaps: κ[αλ]ος υος Θεσ[σ]αλο{2}. Beazley: outer circle: Λοσθε κ[αλ]ος{3}. Inner circle: κ[α]λος{3}. [[But inner circle is clearly αλοσ, so no 'A.W.'.]]
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} addendum to AJA 35, in which B. gives some vi A.D. parallels for λουσθε καλως. {2} with Σ by mistake. {3} `Wash well,' the alabastron for communal use? {3} the kappa of the outer line doing double duty.
  • CAVI Comments: Note that Graef–Langlotz and Peek restore as a partial spiral, which should be considered. The four-stroke sigma is bothersome, as it looks more like a low mu.
