There are 4 objects for which Comparanda contains → black
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
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: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
