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.

51.7.3 For the type see G. Colonna, 'Il ciclo etrusco-corinzio dei Rosoni,' StEtr 29 (1961) 65. Cf.

83.10.1 Cf. D.B. Thompson, Troy. The Terracotta Figurine, nos. 150-155. Perhaps this figurine was placed outside at some point, as this would account for its bad condition and the plant inside it. 2006.20.0913.jpg

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). 2004.99.0428.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:1953.25.45 Cf. Reading RM.25.53.46 (and RM.25.53.47, slightly different)
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:1953.25.51 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:1953.25.62 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:1953.25.7 Unusual in the Attic repertoire as it omits the black dots and circles on the underside. 2005.99.0136.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.79 cf RM.1908.64 and RM.1905.64 (last is smaller) 2005.01.0248.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:1964.1649 Cf. Reading RM.25.53.30 and Corinth 13, 141 fig. 15, 143
