  • CAVI Inscriptions: Nonsense: several rows of dots, the two principal ones being between Ajax's feet and on Athena's right.
  • CAVI Comments: The two main rows `name' Ajax and Athena. It is unclear whether there are also other, shorter, rows as the surface is not clean. One row may be above Athena's shield and may refer to Cassandra who is hiding behind it.
