- The sherd is also published in D. Piekarski, "Die Keramik aus Naukratis im Akad. Mus. Bonn" in U.Hoekmann and D.Kreikenbom, Naukratis.

Piekarski suggests that the inscription on the sherd might refer to the painter Archikles whose signature has been found on other vases alongside the potter Glaukytes. For other examples, see ABV, p. 160, no. 2 in Munich.
