  • CAVI Comments: Frel (see CVA) pointed out that the pentagram appears also on an unpublished Panathenaic fr. from the Acropolis. He attributes both MF 150 and MF 151 to the same painter and the same potter. Both belong to the group that includes Louvre F 273, 274, 278, 280, Toronto 915.25, Berlin 1831, London B 136 and the uninscribed London B 135.
