Gill, 1998 mentioned the presence of some letters, which he did not read; he suggested either 'an abbreviated personal name, the name of the type of vessel, or perhaps a comercial mark of some description'.

From the photograph, C. Dobias-Lalou catches some letters, leading to personal names. The most probable would be a name in ἀγαθ-. However this object having been brought from abroad we cannot exclude a non-Cyrenaean name; with an omicron as fourth letter, we might have a Rhodian name in Ἀγλου-. As Gill writes it, the vase was photographed before having been thouroughly cleaned and it is impossible to decide whether the name was abbreviated or cut extensively.
