First published in Pellegrini 1915: 120 f. Lost.

Image in Pellegrini 1915: tav. II, 22 (drawing).

Incised on the wall of the fragmentary vessel. Pellegrini's drawing clearly shows two St. Andrew's crosses. The character on the right might be V s or a form of Alpha. If the two bars are irrelevant scratches, the group might be another example of the manufacturer's mark I sΘ sΘ sI s iθθi, which occurs on the wall of a beaker once. But cp. also EX-95 and EX-96 for dubious scratchings on the walls of cups.
