  • CAVI Subject: Fr. of spout in the form of a phallos.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Gr. "in the dry clay": Κερκιω[.]{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} so Hesp. But it could be complete: Κερκιω = Κερκιο (gen.), an owner's inscription. The vase appropriate to the owner's name. LGPN ii reads Κερκιος. Probably after firing. The omega is rectangular.
  • CAVI Comments: Vanderpool notes that this is a telling vase; he rightly cites κερκος = phallos. The writing is coarse. For the use of omega V. compares an ostracon of Themistocles, Hesp. 5 (1936) 40, fig. 39, but it is not clear to me what value he gives to it.
