13.10.23 Almost identical to Quebec, Musée de l'Amérique Française inv. 1991.1711: CCA 16 (1996) 132 no. 493. V. Karageorghis notes that such alabastra made of local gypsum (a material used since the Late Bronze Age) are common in the Salamis Necropolis throughout the Classical period: Excavations at Salamis 3 (1973) 197. Compare also to a 'false alabastron' made of limestone in Sydney, Nicholson Museum 47.342 (Cambridge Loan no. 103): CCA 20 (2001) 123 no. 346 and some such alabastra found at Salamis: V. Karageorghis, Excavations at Salamis IV.1-2 (1970) 86 no. 8, pls. CXIII and CCXXXVII (Cellarka) 2008.03.0042.jpg
13.10.4A-B For comparable mirrors with a concentric circle ornaments and mouldings on the recessed or flat sides of the mirror cases see SCE IV.3 (1956) 114.2, fig. 33.17, discussed on 178 (type 2) and especially G.M.A. Richter, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Bronzes (New York 1915) 269-70, no. 787 (New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Cesnola Collection inv. C.B.144, said to have been found in a tomb in Dali, as published in L. di Palma Cesnola, Atlas III, pl. LX.2; LXI, 1, 2; Excavations in Cyprus 83, B 77.4, 85, E 114.7). The Cesnola example is, however, somewhat larger. Also slightly larger than the Ure example are two 'Hellenistic' mirrors with concentric circle decoration (both with matching lids), but without specific provenience's ('Cyprus) in Aarhus, Antikmuseet (Aarhus Universitet), inv. nos. K115 and K116 (AS 3543a and AS 3543b). 2010.99.0120.jpg
2006.12.49 Fig 31 (i) in R. M. Dawkins 1929 The Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia at Sparta. London: Macmillan and Co. Ltd, The Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies; Supplementary Paper No. 5, DF261.S68D3 seems to show a similarly unusual shape 2007.03.0931.jpg

23.11.31K Similar in size to Reading 23.11.31C, with a different colour to 23.11.31A-J). 2005.06.0070.jpg
26.8.3 Cf. Brussels A 2130 (Brussels CVA vii pl. 21.28); L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) 176 no. 334 (ill.). 2007.01.0092.jpg
29.2.1 Cf. a later LH IIIC1 (1200-1100) example at Yale: YUAG 1913.37, published in S. Matheson Burke and J.J. Pollitt, Greek Vases at Yale (New Haven 1975) 3 cat. 6. 2005.90.0024.jpg
35.4.5 Reading 53.8.4; Melbourne, Potter 1984.0256 (MUV 67), (with a palmette particularly close to this Reading example) published in Connor and Jackson 2000, 194-95 no. 71, ill.; and many other examples collected in Ure 1953. 2001.99.0031.jpg
45.9.2 A nearly identical pair of vases (right as well as left foot) are in in the Gallatin Collection (now in New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art): CVA Gallatin IIIK pl. 62.11-12. Both are larger than the Reading example; the Gallatin left foot is from Olbia (ex Chmielowski Collection); it is also published in Chmielowski Sale Catalogue, American Art Association, February 23024, 1922 no. 74. Ure notes two similar vases from Chalkis published in ArchEph 1907, 82, fig. 16, which are in turn compared with two in the National Museum in Athens, inv. nos. 9734 and 9735. A further example, which is, however, shod in a pointed slipper, was found at Rhitsona, and is in Thebes 6140 (R.57.3): CVA Thebes 1, pl. 68.4-5 (citing further examples in New York and Hanover); K. Demakopoulou and D. Konsola, Archaeological Museum at Thebes. Guide (1981) 63. 2011.98.0081.jpg
48.12.9 Cf. Cypriot sack-shaped jugs partly covered with a reddish glaze, known as Glazed Painted or Colour-coated Ware, e.g. in the T.N. Zintilis Collection (Amsterdam): CCA 25 (2003) 478-79 (inv. nos. 213 and 210). 2008.99.0514.jpg
50.4.2 For a similar (green) glass bottle containing grain see one found in Athens, in L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) 176 no. 162 (ill.). 2002.97.0550.jpg
50.4.8 This lekythos is larger and broader than Reading REDMG:1953.25.35, but with a more delicate appearance. Cf. also Reading 22.3.34. Cf. Sevres inv. 162: CVA Sevres, IV De, pl. 48.32. 2003.97.0814.jpg
51.7.7 Cf. CVA Copenhagen 6, pl. 272, especially no. 8 (Copenhagen Chr. VIII.76 [from Bari]); Warsaw 198889: CVA Warsaw 6, pl. 26 (shorter). The decorative motifs on this kantharos are also found on a skyphos in Toronto, ROM 972.272.1 (Hayes 1984, 116 no. 198 [ill.]). 2003.97.0936.jpg
60.1.3 For a more elaborate version, see the 'Castulo Cup', e.g. Reading 47.2.3 and Reading 50.4.12. 2003.94.0022.jpg
E.23.58 Similar inscription in a Petrie Museum scarab: UC13204 2007.99.0073.jpg
E.62.31 This was a favourite shape for vases of syenite, porphyry, dionite and other hard stones. 2002.98.0039.jpg
REDMG:1951.135.1-2 Slenderer and taller than Lipari 10, pl. C.XXIV (tomb 2453 from excavations in ‘Proprietà D’alia, 1986) and with a flatter top than Lipari 2, pl. g4 (from tomb 115). Cf. pyxides of similar shape (slightly different decoration) but no handles: Lentini inv. 61579/A and 61579/B (S. Lagona, La Collezione Santapaola nel Museo Archeologico di Lentini [Catania 1973] nos. 175-65, pl. 31). 2004.99.0432.jpg
REDMG:1951.157.1 No precise comparanda have been found but for a female head to left, between tendrils, on a squat lekythos, see Fasan, Meo-Evoli inv. 172-74: Reho-Bumbalova 1979, 141 nos. 82-84, pl. 70.
REDMG:1953.25.15 Similar to, but with a higher shoulder than Corinth T2621: Corinth 13, 187no. 162-4, pl. 25
REDMG:1953.25.2 Cf. a larger example of this shape, Kassel T. 717: CVA Kassel 2, pl. 70.9. Derived from Attic types: cf. Agora 12, pl. 16 nos. 349-50 2005.99.0144.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.27 Ure's 'Rhitsona Class P' (Ure 1927, 54) and Haspels' 'Little Lion Class' (ABL 107-109). One of the later examples of this class, on account of its slender profile (much slimmer than RM.1953.25.26) and thick disk foot. Cf. Reading 45.6.15: CVA Reading 1, pl. 11.13 (nearly identical except for a red band at the center of the body, rather than the top, and more careful work on the shoulder). 2005.99.0085.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.35 For other Italian lekythoi with a similar net pattern at Reading cf. 22.3.34 and 50.4.8. Hayes 1984, 169 suggests that this is the same ware as Gnathia net lekythoi. 2001.99.0036.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.38 Cf. Corinth 13, 146-48; the lid of Corinth 15.3, pl. 69.1815 has a similar ‘step-down’ top. 2003.93.0102.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.51 For shape cf. Lipari 2, 147, pl. CXXXIII.2a (tomb 409), a less baggy version of ours; Lipari 10, pl. XVIII (examples from tombs 2435 and 2546
REDMG:1953.25.52 Cf. Reading 22.3.40 (a decorated version of the same shape) and Lipari 2, 167, pl. CXXX.3b (tomb 465) 2004.99.0216.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.57 Cf. similar vessels found in Sicily, esp. an identical piece found at Camarina, inv. 24878: MonAnt 1954 (1990) 113, pl. LXXII (Passo Marinaro tomb 1197.4); and a miniature amphora (same size and shape as ours) found at Agrigento: AG 22594 in Veder Greco 332, tomb 936.
REDMG:1953.25.62 Cf. Reading RM.25.53.64 and Lentini 61606 (Lagonda 1973, no. 183, pl. 29, who compares it to an example excavated at Assora in a tomb dating to the second quarter of the third century: see NSc 1966, 64, fig. 53/d).
REDMG:1953.25.64 Cf. Reading RM.25.53.62 (complete, with a slender neck). 2003.93.0227.jpg
REDMG:1958.13.1 For other bowls with points around the rim and a pierced handle, see KArageorghis, 2000, p. 30 #28.
REDMG:1964.1622 For shape RM.25.53.23. For such tapering 'cucumber', survivals of the Late Corinthian Archaic type see Corinth 13, 140-41, fig. 15, e.g. Corinth T1243: Corinth 13, 223 no. 281-5, pl. 40. Typically Corinthian foot. Cf. also (banded) Attic olpai: Agora 12, pl. 12. Many jugs of similar shape (local imitations?) were found in Sicily, e.g. Agrigento, although many without distinct bases. For comparanda, however, see Veder Greco 295 (an example with a slightly upcurving handle, from Contrada Pezzino, tomb 1316). 2004.99.0150.jpg
REDMG:1964.1631 A similar example, without the bands, is in Toronto, ROM 982.198.1: Hayes 1984, 178-79 no. 289 (ill.). Similar to Attic fabric (?) but different from Attic examples because of banded decoration and black gloss on underside. This example corresponds to Ure's Class II.C skyphos, particularly (ii) which includes reddish-purple bands just below the level of the handles, perhaps a band at the bottom of the body where it joins the ring foot, and concentric purple bands on the underside (or plain black or reserved undersides). See Ure 1927, 24. Cf. also Morel no. 4314a, 1; Agora 12. no. 344.
REDMG:1964.1667.1 Cf. Lipari 2, pl. CXXXIX.3a (from tomb 136): banded example in a tomb dated to 'stile Gnathia' 2004.99.0157.jpg
REDMG:1964.1678 Cf. Corinth 15.3, pl. 68.1767. Cf. also Agora 12, pl. 46, no. 1427 (a more refined piece)
REDMG:2003.93.1 SCE I pl. CXLI K.T.14.1 (with a more angular body)
REDMG:2004.96.1 The palmettes above the chain are reminiscent of palmette-lotus above chain bands on black figure lekythoi, except that between each five-leaf palmette is a single frond (lotus petal?). Cf. E. Vanderpool, “The rectangular rock-cut shaft. The upper fill,” Hesperia 15 (1946) pl. 62, no. 219. Several such kylikes were found at Corinth; cf. T3162 from North Cemetery grave 262: Corinth 13, pl. 36. 2004.99.0960.jpg
