- Curator's comments
The metope-triglyph ornament is paralleled on a fragment. Boston 88.825 (Fairbanks pl.30, 308.2), also from Naukratis, but from a different vase. Also compare Boston 88.968 (Fairbanks pl.30, 308.6) for similar ornament.
Venit states that the rim is preserved, but the photographs seem to belie this.
