Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Perachora: scarabs under surface".
Notes Probably the re-use of this negative number by a later photograph (post-1930 as the number appears in the JHS Slide Catalogue of 1930 as Perachora scarabs). The negative does not show scarabs from Perachora. Possibly taken from a book or photographic catalogue with the caption: "280. Lécythe Blanc du <> fin du Ve s. Musee National Athénes (photo Emile Seraf )" is written on page.
