Title: Un cratere attico a figura rosse con graffoto commerciale menzionante kothones e arysteres
Author(s): MUSCOLINO, F.
Volume: 92 Date: 2017
An Attic red-figure crater that can stylistically be assigned to the Boreas-Florence Group has a very interesting commercial graffito under its foot, consisting in three lines, with a proper noun, Paseas, and two vase names, i.e. kothones and arysteres, accompanied by numerals. As far as it is known, this is the first occurrence of the two vase names written in full in a commercial graffito. This occurrence provides the opportunity for a reappraisal of the attestations of the kothon, and of the rather uncommon aryster, and to formulate hypotheses on their uses and their identification in effectively attested shapes.
