  • CAVI Footnotes: {1} In Proc. Brit. Acad. Beazley dated the vase in the late sixth, but in ARV[2] he says this is too early. Neugebauer dates shortly before 500. {2} a trace of the omicron? {3} so Furtw., text (there are no facss. for the exterior); probably misread for retr. ναιχι(?).
  • CAVI Comments: Done from Furtw. - Robertson analyzes the style and dates it to the post-Pioneer generation (kalos-name Athenodotus; ornamentation, etc.), but the style was formed under Pioneer influence.
