  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} `coppina,' Gabrici. {2} the tomb context is 3/4 5th, but if the Gr. refers to the same Sosias as Agora P 5157 [[CAVI 338]], the vase must be several decades earlier.
  • CAVI Comments: The reading is Beazley's, using the letters reported without explanation by Gabrici. Agora P 5157 has (according to Lang's reading): Σοσιας καταπυγον, and hος φ(η)σιν hο γραφσας. Attic alphabet (as given by Gabrici). Beazley's restoration is reported by Milne and Bothmer in Hesp. 22 (1953) 218.
