  • CAVI Inscriptions: Lower row: Α[γ]α[μεμνων](?){1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley's suggestion as a possibility; the letters are given as ..Α.Α.., which does not quite agree with the possible restoration. Beazley's suggestion is reported by Burn with a question mark. Agamemnon is certain on Tarentum 4529, also by the Meidias Painter, according to Burn M 23. On p. 62, Burn discusses the possibility of reading Α[ι]ας, but rejects it.
  • CAVI Comments: For the pensive Agamemnon, see Tarentum 4529, fr. of a RF lekanis, manner of the Meidias Painter (may be by self!), ARV[2] 1326/77 (Beazley).
