- For parallels regarding the shape, see British Museum 1876,0909.67, an East Greek stemmed dish found in Cyprus. See also parallels from Miletus in Villing, A. 'Zwei Archaische Schüsselformen in Milet', Archäologischer Anzeiger 1999, 192, figs 2, from Berezan, see Ilyina in Borysthenes-Beresan, The Hermitage Archaeological Collection, vol. 1, 2005 164, no. 199, and Walter-Karydi, 1973, p. 124, no. 264 from Samos.
The rim pattern consisting of diagonal strokes and the broken cable is not usual for the Chian Wild Goat Style, but found frequently in the Animal Chalice and Chalice Styles (Lemos 1991, 91, 129).
