the maker of a very beautiful painted vase, found at Vulci, and now in the collection of M. Durand.
It is painted black, with decorations in white and violet, and bears the inscription ΘΕΟΞΟΤΟΣ ΜΕΠΟΕΣΕ
, that is, Θεόξοτός με ἐποίησε
, according to the interpretation of De Witte (Cab. Durand.
No. 884), and Raoul-Rochette (Lettre à M. Schorn,
p. 60, 2d ed.); but Panofka prefers to read the name Θεοσότος
, or its equivalent Θεόσδοτος
, comparing the form with the kindred name Θεοσδοτιδης
, which occurs in Plato and Demosthenes. (Rhein. Mus.
