9016393, ATHENIAN, Athens, Agora Museum, P2030

  • Vase Number: 9016393
  • Fabric: ATHENIAN
  • Technique: BLACK GLAZE
  • Shape Name: TILE
  • Provenance: GREECE, ATHENS, AGORA
  • Last Recorded Collection: Athens, Agora Museum: P2030
  • CAVI Collection: Athens, Agora P 2030.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of roof tile glazed on one side. From Athens. Unattributed. Early sixth. *Agora 21, 17/D 6, pl. 7 (dr.). *Vanderpool, Hesp. 8 (1949) 407/d, pl. 60.
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the glazed side, in an up-and-down curve, Gr.: [b] Γοργιας [/b]h[b] ο Σ([font color=red]1[49][/font])βαρ[/b]?[b] ιος[/b]?, retr.(1)
  • CAVI Footnotes: (1)so Lang. Vanderpool read: [b] Γοργιας [/b]h[b] ο Σιβακιο[/b], retr. Neither reading quite conforms to the photo. (in Hesp.) or the dr. (in Agora 21), but the letters are coarse and hard to identify. V. omitted the final stroke, but his reading of kappa is better than L.' tailed rho (this is very early for tailed rho), so perhaps: [b] Γορ(γ)ιας [/b]h[b] ο Συβακιος[/b]?? Closed heta.
  • CAVI Comments: NOT A VASE. Name-on-sherd. I wonder if the inscription is not Boeotian, with adj. for the Patronymic.
  • CAVI / AVI Data from Henry Immerwahr's Corpus of Attic Vase Inscriptions (CAVI), updated by Rudoph Wachter's Attic Vase Inscriptions (AVI)
