          I would suggest you read J. Cerny's article in JEA 50 (1964). The wine overseer is an official attached to the royal court. These jars are his responsibility. Jars with the same year-date, same title ... more

            Tory, Thanks for the reference. I'm afraid I won't be able to purchase it. You have pretty interesting stuff here. Regards, Ian
