First published in Morandi 2004: 668, no. 229 B.

Image in Morandi 2004: 667, fig. 26.229 (drawing).

A single character next to a breaking edge. Morandi assumes it to be the initinal letter of an inscription, which does not agree with his drawing, in which the bar points away from the breaking edge. The letter could be either pi or lambda. How the two (potential) inscriptions on the in- and outside of the vessel relate to each other is unclear.
