The Getty and Almagia

It is now reported by Chasing Aphrodite that the J. Paul Getty Museum acquired an Attic red-figured cup attributed to the Marley painter from Edoardo Almagià in 1986 (inv. 86.AE.479 [Beazley Archive 41037]). The cup was listed as "New York market". There is now the added information that it was purchased in Switzerland and found in southern Italy.
