  • CAVI Lemma: foot of small lekane{1}. From Athens. Unattributed. Second quarter fifth (Lang).
  • CAVI Subject: No figured decoration.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, Gr. In the center, circular: Σοσιας καταπυγον. On the rim: hος φ(η)σιν hο γραφσας.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} see Sparkes–Talcott (1970).
  • CAVI Comments: I follow Lang's reading. The Gr. has been read: Σοσιας καταπυγον, Ε[υφρον]ιος φησιν hο γραφσας, although the inscription is probably too late for the vase painter. Lang has now disposed of this. No doubt Sosias is not the well-known potter either. - Beazley compares [Αλ]καιος καταπυ[γον] on Agora P 5169 and says both this and the Sosias inscriptions are near Pherecrateans. Heta is of normal shape but the eta in φησιν resembles an `Argive' lambda and has been compared with the South Italian rough breathing by M. Burzachechi, Mon. Linc. 1961, 345-47, but this seems doubtful. - A very similar Gr. on a vase from Cumae, Unlocated, published by Gabrici, Mon. Ant. 22 (1913) 459, q.v. [[CAVI 7840]].
