  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, Gr. around the circumference: Διονυσιος vac.2 Σωφρονας |{1}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} the inscription almost fills a complete circle. V.&S. and Lang reverse the order of the names, on the assumption, no doubt, that S.' name was written first. I think that D.'s name was written first, and S.' after a short vacat; that name ran too close to the delta of the first name, whence the divider. Lang thinks of joined owners. According to my notes, V.&S. read Σωφρονας | Διονυσιος and classified it under love names, which seems unlikely.
  • CAVI Comments: Disjointed writing with some attempt at calligraphy (curved strokes).
