  • CAVI Lemma: Plain lip cup. From Elche{1}. Unattributed. Third quarter sixth. Mid-sixth (Olmos).
  • CAVI Subject: Int.: in the center, a large reserved area with a dot in the center and a marginal line; on the inside of the lip, a band of parallel lines. Ext.: lip: plain.

  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Elche is 25 km South of Alicante in SE Spain.
  • CAVI Comments: The inscription is not clearly visible. The heta is in a break (there is definitely a letter there) and lambda and sigma are clear. The inscription is therefore Attic and so must be the vase, although its inside decoration resembles Ionian cups (Olmos refers to Samian cups and to R. Ramos, El Museo Arqueologico de Elche (1987) 57). ho pais kalos on a LM cup is most unusual and this is one of the earliest appearances of this formula. Cf. perhaps Athens, Agora P 12, fr. of a BF (LM?) cup; and Athens, Agora P 17,827, Gr. on a BG skyphos of the mid-sixth cent. (AttScr (1990), [[no. 296, p.]] 56).
