  • CAVI Footnotes: (1)Lang says boustr., but the lines seem to me to be by different hands; note especially the epsilons and nu's. (2)enough surface seems to be preserved to show that the final sigma was not written.
  • CAVI Comments: NOT A VASE. Names-on-sherd (Lang) who rejects Vanderpool's suggestion of an unfinished ostracon. The woman's name occurs also on an unpublished vase (of the last quarter of the sixth century?) in the Kanellopoulos Collection: see LGPN ii.
