  • CAVI Collection: Athens, N.M. Acr. ii, 1051.
  • CAVI Lemma: Frs. of RF plaque. From Athens. Unattributed; Mikion (?). Mikion, potter (?). Second half fifth.
  • CAVI Subject: Uncertain subject{1}.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Fr. a: two-liner(?): Μικιω[ν ---?] | [---] γ̣ραψας̣{2}.
  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} Langlotz suggested Return of Persephone. {2} done from pl. 81 in Graef–Langlotz. Langlotz read [εγραψα], Beazley γραψας, adding that the name may have been followed by ανεθηκεν or the like. Hence: Μικιων [ανεθηκεν αυτος] γραψας(?). (Meaning he painted the vase; but the vase is earlier than other vases signed Mikion as potter; see ARV[2] 1341). Cf. Acr. 2134, ABV 347: ... ανεθεκεν ... αυτος ποι[εσας].
  • CAVI Comments: Is Mikion to be distinguished from the potter? See the discussion in Robertson.
  • CAVI Number: 1469
