A.D. Trendall, personal communication to Andre Emmerich April 1988: "The subject finds a close counterpoint in the hydria in the Sotheby sale of 14 July 1986, no. 172 and 8-9 December 1986, no. 183. It seems to me rightly placed with the hydriai listed in the RVAP II, Chap. 17 associated with the Gioia del Colle Painter and the Painter of Copenhagen 4223, though this one is nearer to the work of the latter. Ca. 340 B.C."
