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
16.2.1 Cf. CV Capua iii, Italia 1307, 10-12 and notes; and see notes file; also 'Kunst der Antike' (Hamburg) no. 351 2003.97.0330.jpg
22.9.1 Reading 49.4.26; cf. Ure 1934, pl. 31. See also BM Cat. 775. 2004.08.0002.jpg

45.6.34 Perhaps there are similar things from earlier period in Cyprus and Near East. Look also in MonAnt 22 (1913) pl. 70.4 for comparanda to Michigan type. Contra Michael Turner (Sydney) who says (11.2003) that there are no black glazed examples of this shape. 2002.97.0017.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. 2011.98.0080.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
51.7.3 For the type see G. Colonna, 'Il ciclo etrusco-corinzio dei Rosoni,' StEtr 29 (1961) 65. Cf. Getty 83.AE.299 (identical except that the Getty handle attaches to the shoulder) : CVA Getty 6 (USA 31) pl. 328; GettyMusJ 12 (1984) 249 no. 94. Cf. also Tolfa, Tomb IX (loc. Ferrone): Colonna 65 no. 4); Cerveteri, Tomb 303 (MonAnt 42 [1955] col. 783, fig. 175; I.E.M. Edlund, The Iron Age and Etruscan Vases in the Olcott collection at Columbia University, New York. TAPS 70.1 (1980) 35-36 no. 47. More primitive faces see Schaal, Gr. Vasen aus Frankfurter Sammlungen pl. 26 f.; OJh 6 (1903) 67 f., figs. 30, 32 2008.98.0371.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.]). 2003.93.0234.jpg
REDMG:1942.5.6.2 For shape cf. Corinth 13, 130-33, fig. 14, e.g. Corinth T2556: Corinth 13, 323 no. X-182, pl. 92; cf. also Corinth 15.3, pl. 69.1841.
REDMG:1953.25.46 Body rounder than RM.1953.25.45, but otherwise identical. Cf. also RM.25.53.47, slightly different. 2004.99.0631.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.50 Cf. Reading 34.2.3 and Reading RM.25.53.48. For palmette cf. Reading RM.25.53.59 and Langlotz 1932, pl. 9.112. See also Corinth 13, 136. 2004.95.0164.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.67 Cf. Corinth 13, grave 157-5. See also Payne 1934, 293, 306, 322
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:1964.1678 Cf. Corinth 15.3, pl. 68.1767. Cf. also Agora 12, pl. 46, no. 1427 (a more refined piece)
