  • CAVI Lemma: BF/WG oinochoe. Unattributed. Charinos, potter. Late sixth.
  • CAVI Subject: Grape vine in silhouette style, all around.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Under the vine, all around, in two groups: Χαρινος : εποιεσ[εν], upside down. Χσενοδο[κ]ε [----](.)κα.. καλε.
  • CAVI Comments: Cf. Ξενοδοκος, PA 11,192. My reading is from a photograph. Beazley's best reading is in ABV: for the signature, no trace after the second sigma, but the surface is not perfectly preserved. For the second inscription ABV has: Χσενοδο[κ]ε 3-4 (.)(.) παι̣υ̣ καλε [..]. This is better than the text in JHS 49, 44, n. 30, as corrected on p. 311. Walters restores: Χσενοδο[κ]ε [μοι(?) δοκε]ι παις καλε, but the inscription is surely miswritten. Cohen: the lettering is Charinos', note the angular rho. The 2-dot punctuation is old-fashioned: this is the earliest signature of Charinos.
