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
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.
