A piece of glass vessel found in a Byzantine fort at Odărci in Bulgaria bears an inscription in two lines. A few letters have been preserved and the following were identified on the grounds of shape analysis: … CAI … in the first line and … ΛINE … in the second line. Considering the presumed cup function of the vessel, the letters from the first line should be recognized as belonging to a very popular late antique convivial formula frequent on glass vessels: [… ΠΙΕ ΖΗ]CΑI[C]. The preserved letters from the lower line represent the end of a personal name, presumably that of the beaker owner. In keeping with the practice of the times, the name was written in the vocative. Similar inscriptions on glass vessels find many parallels in late antiquity. The shape of the letters, especially the characteristic alpha and lambda, points to a date for the painting on the cup sometime between the 4th and the 7th century. The proper spelling of the first word in the inscription argues in favor of the vessel originating from the Byzantine East.
