  • CAVI Comments: The kantharos has a rattle. GMusJ considers the inscription a dedication to the Dioscuri. For the shape see Sparkes–Talcott (1970), 117-19. The rim may have had a rattle in it; for bibl. on these, see Schreiber note 9. - The letters are ornamental in the sense that the majority are smallish and raised, with some taller and going below the line: I underline the short raised letters: καστωρπολυδευικης [[κ, α, ω, λ, η, ς]]. Ionic alphabet.
