25. 95.57 PART OF HANDLE OF KYLIX Signature of Brygos PLATE IXLength, 0.08 m. In two pieces, joined. Burnt to a yellowish grey. From the Athenian Acropolis. Formerly in the van Branteghem collection. Ann. Rep. 1895, p. 21, no. 34. Collection van Branteghem, no. 74, with facsimile of inscription. Hartwig, Meisterschalen, p. 371, fig. 50, accurate full-size drawing. Tonks, Brygos, p. 105, no. 9. Beazley, V.A., p. 92. Hoppin, i, p. 107, no. 1. The signature of the potter Brygos, ΒΡΥΓΟΣ : ΕΠΟΙΕΣΕΝ is well preserved except for the initial Β and the Π, which are incomplete. It has been suggested that the handle might belong to the fragmentary cup from the Acropolis in the style of the Brygos painter, with Odysseus and Circe, Langlotz, Vasen von der Akropolis, ii, p. 24, Pls. 17, 18, fig. 293. But Mr. B. H. Hill, who kindly undertook to investigate the question in Athens with the help of an accurate replica of the handle, has shown conclusively that the two cannot be fitted together.1
