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.

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
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
