  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the outside of the wall, written on the sherd, Gr.: Ευμελις / ηκ[ε] ος ταχος. / Αρκεσιμος. Above the upsilon of line one is a gamma; below the kappa of the last line, an epsilon; below, in the field (according to pl. 2) a chi, and a rho plus a diagonal line (iota?).
  • CAVI Comments: Found with P 15,209, q.v. - Lang's reading: "Eumelis, come as quickly as you can. Arkesimos." Lang also says that the ος ταχος was crowded in as an afterthought. The feminine Eumelis is not known; Arkesimos is found in Eretria (cf. Bechtel (1917)). - The problem is that the ancients do not sign letters on the bottom. - For ηκε, V.&S. compare Ar., Peace 275: ηκε νυν ταχυ. - The alphabet is Attic except for eta, but that may possibly be syllabic hε [[h(ε)]] for he. Or mixed alphabet? - The Gr. may be amatory, cf. P 15,209.
