Abstract: By considering various functions of the Volterra operator $ V$, examples are obtained to show that (i) similar contractions need not have the same defect numbers, (ii) unicellular operators may have large spectra, and (iii) the disk $ \vert z\vert \leqq \vert\vert T\vert\vert$ need not be a minimal spectral set for an operator $ T$ of the form 1 + compact. A complete description is also given of those disks that are a spectral set for some conjugate of $ V$.
