  • CAVI Subject: No figured decoration preserved.
  • CAVI Inscriptions: On the bottom, a Gr.: according to Vokotopoulou, the entire Ionic alphabet plus sampi. I could see in the ph.: from near the center, in a straight line to the margin: α, β, Ionic γ, δ, ε. Then the letters turn left and go along the margin, i.e., the row is retr., although the individual letters are not (note the kappa); visible are: ι, κ, Ionic λ, μ, ν. The Gr. probably continues along the margin; at the end I read: χ, stemles υ, ω, sampi.
