- Curator's comments
- The sherd belongs to the same vase as Oxford AN1896-1908-G.138.40, which gives the subject as a komos scene. British Museum 1900,0214.6, a fragment in Heidelberg and Bonn 697.90 possibly belong to the same vessel.
The sherd is also published also in Beazley, J. D. ‘The Master of the Stroganoff Nikoxenos Vase’, The Annual of the British School at Athens 19, 1912-1913, 238, no. 16.
If this sherd does belong to the same vase as 1900,0214.6, which was excavated by Hogarth south of points 17 and 18 in the northern part of the Hellenion , then it is likely that this sherd was found in the same area (Hogarth 1898-1899, 30, no. 107).
