  • CAVI Comments: Fiesel 1934 suggested menece = made it or gave it. Gill prefers the former and thinks the vase was actually made in Italy (after Richter (1946)), the clay being exported there. The inscription is painted before firing, in the regular manner (see Richter). Brendel thinks the subject is a youth and a boy in conversation. He discusses the possibility of the inscr. being Greek: the second word could be Μενελε[ος] or voc. Μενελε [sic]. But the first word cannot be explained as Greek. An Etruscan worker in Athens or an illiterate Greek worker? - Johnston (1979), 49: the vase is mentioned a propos the question of Etruscan participation in the trade, which had been claimed by Hackl (1909), 93.
