The inscriptions on non-Attic vases are an extremely important source for knowledge of ancient Greek, in particular colloquial language. Painted or incised before firing, this corpus of material cannot be held suspect as possible later additions. Wachter provides a detailed catalogue of the inscriptions together with an epigraphical and linguistic analysis and commentary.
