Antonella Ferraro (op. cit., p. 99) notes that "the name engraved on the tablet consists simply of a Greek cognomen, of mythological origin and not widely used. The presence of a single onomastic element, moreover in the nominative, to refer to the deceased, as well as its off-center position on the tablet, suggests that the text was engraved in modern times, probably in order to increase its value at the time of the sale to the English collector."
The Bonhams catalogue notes that "This urn was found and maintained with cremated remains inside. These remains are due to be excavated, thoroughly recorded and deposited with Barbican House Museum of Sussex Archaeology in Lewes (part of the Sussex Archaeological Society)."
