  • CAVI Comments: Ex Campana 12,135. Bothmer compares London E 38, ARV[2] 72/16, signed by Python and Epiktetos, the only other signature of Python not on a foot profile and the only one not on a cup by Douris. [Also the only one which has the verb (εποιεσεν).] Giroux questions whether the cases without verb are signatures; on our fr. there is a blank space below the name of 1.3 cm. But I think Bothmer is right. This must be very late Epiktetos and very early Python.
