Burn, on p. 75, discusses the scene: Langlotz connected it with the sanctuary of Aphrodite εν Κηποις and its statue of Alcamenes, which, as Delivorrias has shown, could have preceded the vase (ca. 440). He identified the girls as the arrhephoroi who were in the service of of Athena and Aphrodite and played ball in their sphairistra (cf. Burkert, Hermes 94 (1966) 3 and n. 2).
