  • CAVI Inscriptions: Under the foot, along the outside edge, in two curved lines, left-aligned: Γοργίας φιλ̣ε̣[ῖ Τά]μυνιν | καὶ Τάμυνις Γ̣οργίαν φι[λεῖ].
  • CAVI Comments: The vase is Attic, the inscription is not. Both lines are written by the same person, Gorgias; Beazley thinks it is a trochaic tetrameter, with the second φιλει added; Porson's law is violated; the upsilon is long: the papyri spell the name Τάμουνις, cf. Syll{3}. 1266. The name is found in Egypt, apparently as a woman's name, although Pape seems to refer to the masculine.
