- Curator's comments
- The sherd belongs to the same vase as Oxford AN1896-1908-G.138.36 and may also belong to the same vase as British Museum 1900,0214.6, a sherds in Heidelberg and Bonn 697.90.
The sherd is also published in Beazley, J. D. ‘The Master of the Stroganoff Nikoxenos Vase’, 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, (Hogarth 1898-1899, 30, no. 107), then it is likely that this sherd was found in the same area.
