  • CAVI Lemma: Fr. of a coarse unglazed tile. From Athens. Unattributed. Sixth or early fifth. *Vanderpool, Hesp. Suppl. 8 (1949) 403/17, pl. 59. AJA 39 (1935) 179, fig. 6 (bottom row, right). *Lang, Agora 25, 133/1052, fig. 26 (dr,).
  • CAVI Subject: Undecorated.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the inside, Gr. : [b] Θρασυκλε(ς)[/b].
  • CAVI Comments: NOT A VASE. Not in Agora 21. Vanderpool says it is "not entirely certain" that this is an ostracon, as the lettering looks early (alpha with curved top!); but the context extends into the fifth century. Lang in Agora 25, reading [b] Θρασυκλει[/b]?, lists this fr. as the only ostracon against one Thrasykles, while also stressing the uncertainty of its being an ostracon, especially if the name is in the dative when it could be a tag. Cartwheel theta.
  • CAVI / AVI Data from Henry Immerwahr's Corpus of Attic Vase Inscriptions (CAVI), updated by Rudoph Wachter's Attic Vase Inscriptions (AVI)
