  • CAVI Lemma: Cup (Hatzipolakis, Isidoros, "clay pot," Lapatin). From Salamis, Peristeria cave. Unattributed. Contemporary with Euripides (pot); second century (Gr.).
  • CAVI Inscriptions: Gr.: either ΕΥΡΙΠΠ or ΕΥΡΙΠΙ.
  • CAVI Comments: The Gr. is said to be much later than the pot. Clinton, relying on the first reading as reported to him, suggests Ευριππ[η], for which see LGPN ii. This is denied by H. and I. Phelps points out that the cave today is much too low-ceilinged and narrow for human use. The cave was first associated with Euripides by Sylvia Benton and so is the inscription by Lapatin and others. This is highly speculative.
