- Curator's comments
For parallels regarding the decoration, see Kinch 1914 pl. 10, no. 1.
If the sherd does belong to a similar cup, then the sherd belongs in Group B 1.α
or Group B 1.β. It is impossible to determine to which of the two groups the cup belongs since the defining characteristic is found on the underside of the stemmed foot, which is now lost.
According to Schlotzhauer, Vroulia cups with a geometric pattern in the handle zone and with a shape similar to South Ionian cups with everted rims (Schlotzhauer Type 8, which coincides with Vallet and Villiard's Ionian cup type A1 and Hayes' Ionian cup type III) may be contemporary and ought to be dated amongst the earliest examples of Vroulia pottery at Naukratis.
Vallet and Villard, 1964, 87-88

The rim is lower than that of 1888,0601.569e and l.
