  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Bea. Arch. gives Manner of Haimon Pinter. {2} Add.[2] gives NΙΔΡΟ. In my reading there seems to be a worn place below the lambda which may obscure part of the letter; but a nu seems excluded. {3} can it be Boeotian?
  • CAVI Comments: Not good work. The inscription in rough letters, with much flaking; not by a skilled hand. - Sophon is found in Attica; see LGPN ii. But Klidro (or Nidro) do not sound Attic, alothough they are listed in LGPN ii. Attic alphabet{3}.
