  • CAVI Lemma: WG oinochoe (mug). From Gela, Sanctuary of Athena Lindia. Unattributed. End of sixth - beginning fifth (Guarducci).
  • CAVI Subject: Owl to left of an olive branch{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: To left of owl, downward and facing out: [h]ο παις{2}. To its right, similar: καλ(ο)ς̣{3}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} this is to left of the single handle; there must be further decoration on the other side. {2} there is space in the WG for the initial heta but it looks as if nothing had been written there; however the disappearance of BG on WG is common so [h] is probably justified. {3} the omicron looks like an epsilon, somewhat disjointed, but that may be a coincidence.
