According to Boulter and Luckner (op. cit., p. 27), von Bothmer in correspondence with Beazley tentatively suggested Myson as the painter of this pelike, and Beazley agreed that such a possibility existed, but both hesitated since some of the decorative details do not conform to Myson's typical style.
