  • CAVI Collection: Athens, North Slope AP 947.
  • CAVI Lemma: Household amphora. From Athens. Unattributed. Second half sixth (context).
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Graffiti: A: on the shoulder, between handles: Αγασικλ̣ες. On the belly, on the upper glazed band, starting beneath the first sigma of Agasikles and continuing under the right handle to side B: Κ[ ca. 16-18 ]κ̣λες δοκεν Λαφιλιδει (κ)α[ι] βαρυνος. B: on the shoulder (as on A): Ευρυκλ[ε]ς{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} my readings; Broneer differs in several details. He gives Ευρυκ[λ](ε)ς [sic]; the letters appear to be Ευρυκας, hence Ευρυκας is possible. In the long belly inscription, B. gives the gap as ca. 12 letters. The kappa after Laphilidei is written over a gamma (according to me) or alpha (B.). B. reads καβ[β]αρυνος for καταβαρυνος (βαρυνος is new). Similar graffiti: Talcott (1936), 346 ff.; Shear (1936), 36. - For the long inscription one possibility is: κ[αταπυγον Αγασι]κλες δοκεν Λαφιλιδει κα[ι] βαρυνος. For the infin. δοκειν see perhaps ὅτι with infin.: Ind. Forsch. 48, 164 and Pfister, Philol. 73, 559; Old Olig. I 2: ερω ... οτι εχειν; Pl., Gorgias 447b? Or for ως δοκειν(?) - LGPN ii reads Agasikles, Laphilides (only here) and Eurykles saying for the last: Ευρυκας - vase'.
  • CAVI Comments: According to Sparkes–Talcott (1970), i, p. 189, n. 14, the vase is East Greek. The inscriptions seem to be Attic (rather than Boeotian?), however, so the writer seems to be an Athenian.
