Sometimes threeof these lines may give a result;sometimes, or the thewriting may maybe characterless, pot fragment be featureless, the contextmaybe meaningless. it is the date of the inscription whatwe haveto determine, must most often be arrivedat by Although

Thus anything but the most painstaking incision on (or through) good black glaze results in angular letters and straight lines where curves might be expected. A very fine metal point is easier to control but seems not to have been used so often as some blunter instrument.The older, softer fabrics lend themselvesmore to curved lines so that even the straight

Becauseof thesefactorsit is not practicable see all differences letter-shapes relevant thedate to in as to

For example, even though epsilons are known to develop from tailed to untailed, a good black-glazed sherd of the 5th century B.C. may show a long-tailed epsilon while those on a coarse pot of the 6th century B.C.are without a tail. One or more of a number of reasons may be

involved:the hardsurface blackglazerequires muchpressure complete of so that controloverthe length

of line may be lost; the 5th-centurywriter may be an old man using the letter-shapesof his early youth; the 6th-centurywriter may have been a careful person who had established a base line below which he

did not go, etc.

The conclusions arrived at for that one group can here be tested on all categories; they appear generallyto hold true. "A more or less standard old Attic alphabet(A or ABAAEIIH?IKLNMNOPP$TVOX or +)lis used with only a few exceptions and variant forms through the second quarter of the 5th century B.C."(p.23 below). Obviously these standard shapes will often only be approximatedby writerswho may be unskilled or using intractable materials,but in addition there are real exceptions which may be tabulatedas follows:
Digamma is not used alphabeticallybut only numerically;koppa is used more exceptionallythan regularly;xi and psi are regularlyindicatedby the combinationof chi and phi, respectively,with sigma.

Single letters standing for doubled consonants are standardin the early period (F 3, F 58, F 62, F 103) and even occur sporadicallyin the 4th century B.C.(F 138, F 168) when the usual practice is to write both consonants (F 124, F 131, F 146, F 198, F 201, F 205, F 214, F 217, etc.). The reverse situation, where a single letter is doubled, occurs only in the case of sigma precedinga dental (F 26, F 77) and so may reflect a felt differenceof pronunciationmore than uncertaintyor confusion.

Punctuation is rare in these short texts: two or three dots vertically arrangedoccur between words on two early pieces (F 18, F 24); a long line marking off the end from the beginning of inscriptions that circle around on themselves appears on two later examples (F 83, F 92). Mention has already been made in passing of the non-Greek scripts which are included in this collection: one Greek name written in the Cypriote syllabary(F 67); and several Latin names written in Latin letters (F 228, F 251, F 283, F 288, F 298, F 313, F 328) as well as one which is apparently given in both Latin and Greek letters. Two other pieces seem to be non-Greek (F 99, F 100).

If, for instance, Aristogeiton was the founder of his club he might well have marked his drinkingcup Ar, while subsequent joiners named Aristotle, Aristeides, Ariston and Aristippos would have arrogated to themselves respectivelythe abbreviations Ari, Aris, Arist and Aristi.

owners'namesbut still leavesus puzzledas to why these six ownerssaw fit to identifytheirproperty
by both forms. Whatever may be imagined as the intended grammaticalcase of the abbreviations,the variety among the names that are complete allows considerable choice: nominative 40%; genitive 57 %; dative 3 %.9 Since the nominative may always be considered as the subject of an understood verb of owning with the object inscribed as the understood object, and since both genitive and dative can express possession, the usage may depend on individual preference. The choice of case seems not to have been dictated by

that nominative genitive,at any rate, wereboth used pretty and changingfashion,sinceit is apparent from the beginning the end of our period. to consistently A few of the owners'namesin the nominativeand genitiveare accompanied additionalidentiby fication:the father'sname appearscertainin F 231, F 304 (also grandfather), 316, and possiblyin F F 117 and F 118; tradename, title or epithet appearsin F 262, F 304 and F 316.

convenient to consider these two matters together. For our purposes the vessels do not need to (and often can not because of theirfragmentarystate) be separatedinto many individual categories of shape. It is sufficient (and often only possible) to distinguish open vessels (like cups, bowls, basins, plates) from closed (like amphoras, pitchers,jugs). In addition there are lamps and lids and one disc-stand, as well as three unexplained objects of clay. The vast majority (73 %) of open vessels12 inscribed underneath,on the base; on 19% the inscripare tion appears on the side wall; the locations of the other 8% are various, with only a few examples of each: inside (often on floor), top of rim (of basins), top of foot or stem (kylix), handle. Two of the sidewall inscriptions are upside down to the vessel (F 6, F 25), and one runs vertically (F 203). For the great number of inscriptions underneaththe orientation is obviously a matter of indifference.

( Dipintoin red. EOxa ) INTRODUCTIONTO PUBLIC OWNERSHIP (Fa, Fb)
Except for the two pieces (Fa 25, Fa 26) which were found in late Roman fill, the finding places of the delta-epsilon pots may be considered significant. Fifteen (Fa 2-15, Fa 24) came from under the Stoa of

Zeus; sevenothers(Fa 16-21, Fa 23) camefrom the Tholos area;the othertwo camefrom wells about of 40 meters(Fa 22) and about70 meters(Fa 1) southwest the Tholos.
Since both the Tholos and the Stoa Basileios (which presumablyused the well under the Stoa of Zeus

beforethat stoa was built)were seats of governmental that activity,it is not surprising vesselsmarked
as public property should be practically limited to their neighborhood. (There are also about a dozen vessels of the 5th or 4th century B. c. which are marked with the two letters delta-epsilon not in ligature.

These come from variousplaces in the Agora and are thereforemore probablyto be interpreted as of abbreviations personalnamesbeginning thus.) Threelater pieces with the ligaturedelta-etashouldbe listed, since de(mosion) would be so written
after the introduction of the Ionic alphabet. All three come from the neighborhood of the Hephaisteion. (Four pieces inscribed with delta-eta, not in ligature, come from this neighborhood or the Tholos area, but may again be abbreviations of personal names.)

Drinking cups of the Hellenistic period are not infrequently inscribed with the name of some deity or some abstract idea, illustrating the banqueting practice attested by Athenaios (XV, 692e) of naming successive mixings of wine after various gods (presumably in the genitive case; see G 9-11).

Dimensionsare includedonly when the vessel preserves either diameteror height, since no other measurements meaningful. are and capacityare noted whererelevantand available.In giving Weight
modern equivalents of ancient weights and measures it has seemed right to use the time-honored and generally accepted figures like 0.546 1. for the xestes (sextarius) and 327 gm. for the litra (libra), since variations from these, although developed with much subtlety,are far smaller than the variations immanent in the ancient standardsof capacity and weight as exemplifiedin these common vessels of clay.

INTRODUCTIONTO NOTATIONSOF CAPACITY(Ha) Notationsof capacityhereincludenot only those whichshow both a unit of capacityand a number
but also those with only a number where the size of the vessel makes that number significantin terms of some obvious unit. Generally speaking, the notations of capacity may refer either to the amount which was in the jar at a particulartime or to what it could hold. It is not thereforeright to deduce the size of a

unit by dividingthe measured markedon it, sincethe notationmay capacityof a vesselby the number have beenmadeto recordeithera knownamountbeingpouredin (withoutfillingthe jar) or whatwas left aftera knownamountwas decanted froman understood total.Therefore, if at leasttwo original only

Not includedhere are the followingcategories:(1) many vessels, mostly from the Greek period, similar in XXV, 1956,pp. 1-24; (2) manyvesselswhich show inscriptions alreadypublished Hesperia,
to the ones presentedhere but which are not measurableand so can add nothing; (3) many vessels which

are include in otherclassesbecauseof othernotations(F 198; Hd 6, Hd 10; He 1-11, He 13, He 14, He He 16, He,17 He , He2, 22, 26, He 29, He 30, He 32-37, He39-44; 5, 10, 12, 18, I 21, 23,

or city, see Hd 1, Hd 5, Hd 15 andHd 16 for singleletterswhichmayindicateeitherquantity quality.

Except where noted, the capacity was measured to the rim and so is excessive, at least in pots where restoration with modern plaster has not thickened the walls. The rim provides the only consistent upper

limitfor fillingsincenecksare of variouslengthsand the transition from shoulder neckis oftenhard to

to define. What may have been the upper limit for filling in the ancient measurementscan occasionally be

in determined: Ha 9 the capacityto the rim is 2.150 1.; the sevenand one-halfkotylesmarkedthereon
should be 2.047 1. or about 95% of the up-to-rim capacity. It would however be too much to expect consistency from the various measurersover the centuries representedhere. In the Greek period, that is, before Christ, numbers may be expressed by simple tallying strokes

in numerals the 5th and 4th centuries(Ha 5, Ha 6, Ha 9; He 1-3) (Ha 3-7, Ha 11), or by acrophonic both in the 5th century(Ha 7) and later(F 198; Ha 14; He 4). Wherechous numerals and by alphabetic
and kotyle are counted as units (also staters and mnas), their initial letter is used instead of the simple

numerals 6, Ha 7, Ha 9; He 1, He 3); similarly strokein acrophonic both 'nliovand es arerecorded (Ha ( acrophonically 6, Ha 7, Ha 9, Ha 10; He 2). as Chous is abbreviated X (F 198; Ha 2, Ha 6, Ha 10; He 1, He 2) or o( ) (Ha 14), or it is writtenout as Xos(Ha 8), Xoi<s>(Ha 25) or xo6s (Ha 31). Kotyle is abbreviated K (F 198; Ha 7, as Ha 9, Ha 10, Ha 35; He 1) or KO( ) (Ha 29, Ha 40; He 17); other words used for the same unit
(Ha 19) and Trav(Tava) 21). Both units (kotyle and chous) continue to be used (He may be pE(Tpa)

in occasionally the Romanperiod;on the otherhand, the Romanmodiusbeginsto appearin the 1st is of by centuryB. C. (He 4). Capacity also measured the mna-weight the contents(He 3; see also He 5
for mna-weight in the Roman period). The vessels of the Greek period, largely fragmentary,provide only scanty evidence for the size of the

chousand kotyle,but whatthereis can be reconciled with the standard kotyleof 0.273 1. and chousof 3.276 1. (F 198; Ha 9), even the "new chous" of Ha 2, whichis only slightlyundersize and is more to be a joke than an officialstandard. likely In the Romanperiod,exceptfor some tallying 16, He 17, He 33),numbers mostlyalphabetic are (He Ha 19, Ha 21, Ha 22, Ha 24-26, Ha 29-31, Ha 33-52, Ha 54-56; He 5-11, He 13, He 14, (Ha 18, He 17, He 21, He 22, He 25, He 26, He 29, He 30, He 32, He 33, He 35-37, He 39, He 42-44; 1 5, I 10, A I 12, I 18, 1 21, I 23, I 26, I 32) with < or c as one-halfand 8" as one-quarter. few Romannumerals are also used(He 19, He 20, He 41).
The most frequent unit of capacity in this period is the xestes, which appears both written out in full

in (Ha 17, Ha 20, Ha 23, Ha 28) and abbreviated variousways: | (Ha 30, Ha 56) (Ha37; He36, He44; I5,1I26; K 13) X (Ha 38, Ha 43, Ha 45, Ha 46, Ha 48, Ha 50-52; He 41; 1 18, I 21, I 23, 45)

Furthermore, the smaller standard xestes (0.546 1.) seems to continue in use (Ha 44, Ha 45, Ha 48;

He 36, He 39, He 41; 1 5) in the 4th, 5th and 6th centuries.Onejar (Ha 45) even seemsto providea
double standard,giving the number of both the 0.546 1. xestai (24 1/2) and that of the 0.728 1. xestai (19). The apparentlycontemporaneous use of all three xestai is complicated by the fact that the one which the

writersspecifically labelan oil xestesis the veryone whichourpot-notations as metrological designate a

Orcan we say thathereis a cunning customer who likedto takehis ownjug to the shopsand set his own standards? Luckily,we have some other evidence:one kotyle is defined(Metrolog.Script.,I, 236) as three-fourths a standardxestes or 0.409 1.; if anotherxestes was based on such an outsize of being into of kotyle,it wouldbe 0.818 1. andfit reasonably Ha 28.

The capacity of a vessel was often defined not by the number of standard units it could hold but by

contents.Thatthis practice fairlygeneral was fromthe the net weightof the particular may be assumed
careful way in which the metrological writers (passim) defined the comparative weights of wine (or

water),oil and honey:i.e., the 0.546 1. xestesof wine weighs20 Romanounceswhilethe sameamount
of oil weighs 18 Roman ounces, and the same amount of honey weighs 27 Roman ounces. Thus the weight of oil is to that of wine as 9:10, and the weight of honey is to that of wine as 13'/2:10. Net weight in of is noted on ten of our vessels,twice(He 22; I 32) with an abbreviation KacSapos,6 presumably the sense of net weight, just as ocrrpaKouindicates the weight of the vessel or tare. Of the other eight, four indicate the nature of the contents: oil in He 7; honey in He 29, He 33 and He 34. Two of the remaining

four (He 26, He 40) give tare weightin additionto net weight,but in the case of the last two (Ha 26; He 32) thereis no indicationof whatthe weightrefersto, althoughit is fairlyeasy to guessby hefting its the jar or measuring capacity.For example,Ha 26 is markedsimply"eightlitrai";6 8 x 327 gm. = of of 2.616kg. or 2.6161. of wineor water,whichis the measured capacity thejug if the remnant modern He is left from restoration discounted. 32 is marked"ninelitrai"; 9 x 327 gm. = 2.943 kg. or plaster
2.943 1. of wine or water; but because the jar's capacity is ca. 3.300 1. it seems clear that the contents

is oil: 10/9 x 2.943 1. = 3.270 1.7 Thus, in He 7 where the contents is specifiedas 20 litraiand 5 ounces of the is oil, the calculated weightis 20 5/12 x 327gm. = 6.676kg.; to get oil capacity formula 10/9x 6.676 =
7.420 1., which compares neatly with the measured capacity of the vessel (7.400 1.). For further discussion of net weight, particularlyin connection with honey pots, see the introduction to Tare Notations below.

Since these threeare the only ones wherethe (Hb 10, weightis over ten litrai,we shouldperhapsthink that all the tallyingwas done on the Romansystem.

Tarenotationswithsimplenumbers appearon the following:Hb 5, Hb 18, Hb 29; He 6, He 12, He 13, He 25, He 26, He 29, He 38, He 39; 17. The chronological rangeis from the firstto the sixthcentury, and the numbers all on the Greekalphabetic are system.

Ounce as eithergammaenclosingomicron(e. g. Hb 3; He 22, He 39) or omicronsurmounted (ouiyKia) appears by upsilon(Hb22).
9It is understood that the weight-unitis the Roman litra since the only two mna-weightsbelong to the early part of the first century (Hb 5; He 5). 10In the capacitynotations of the Greek period the acrophonicnumbersystem allowed tallyingof this sort (with delta for "ten") for a differentpurpose. The whole shift in the use of tallyingfrom measuresto weights is interestingand suggeststhat commodities began to be sold more and more by weight.
