  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Beazley says: "This reading is questionable. Stephani read ...ΩΛΗΣ (CR. 1869, p. 181); the omega, he says, is not certain and alpha is also possible; before it is a trace of another letter, then the fragment ends. I have no note of the fragment, but looking at the careful drawing in Stephani's plate I wondered if ΟΠΛΗΣ might not be read." Hoples was a son of Ion and father-in-law of Aegeus.
  • CAVI Comments: In AJA, Beazley attributes the frs. to the Meidias Painter, but they are not listed in ARV[2] or Para.
