  • AVI Web: https://www.avi.unibas.ch/DB/searchform.html?ID=1050
  • AVI Record Number: 935
  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. 18,772.
  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of pinax. From Aegina. Unattributed. Ca. 690 (?). 710-700 (?) (Jeffery). 720-710 (Guarducci). 700 (Morris).
  • CAVI Subject: Head of a warrior; spearhads.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On top of the scene, in large letters: --]σ̣ονος Επιστ̣[--.
  • CAVI Comments: Considered Aeginetan by Jeffery, but the letters are not diagnostic (see AttScr). The piece may not belong to Morris' Aeginetan workshop. I list it here as possibly Attic, with a possibly Attic inscription. No doubt a dedication, a bespoken piece. Jeffery, p. 403, restores: [Λυ?]σ̣ονος Επιστ̣[αμον ανεθεκε?]. Cook restored a metrical signature, which is unlikely. - The pi is definitely curved, cf. AttScr.
