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
14.9.105 For large numbers found at Olynthus, see Olynthus 5, pls. 141-44, 13, pls. 101-106, 109-110, pp. 146 ff. 2003.25.0005.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
26.12.6 CVA Moscow 7, 12.5; seven similar vases found at Rhitsona in graves of c. 580 BC: NC p.314 fig. 158. 2003.03.0086.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
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
47.7.1 Note that at least one bolsal has now been found in Athens: L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) nos. 211-12 (ill.). 2010.98.0267.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
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
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:1953.25.57 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: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: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
