25.6.6 Reading 25.6.5. Cf. also astragaloi found in Athens: L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) 176 no. 297, 313 (ill.). 2002.97.0623.jpg

34.2.2 Cf. Athens, NM 226 from Exarchos 2002.97.0658.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
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. 2011.98.0081.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.). 2010.98.0265.jpg
49.8.10 Possibly related to lekanides with water birds from the Troad. 2003.93.0309.jpg
50.4.2 For a similar (green) glass bottle containing grain see one found in Athens, in L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) 176 no. 162 (ill.). 2002.97.0550.jpg
51.7.5 Belongs to the class of 'Ornate Style' small vases connected both with the Darius Painter and with the Patera and Ganymede Painters. Particularly close comparanda are Heidelberg U 15 (CVA pl. 77.4-6, RVAp 26/11) and Metaponto 128723 (from Pizzica d'Onofrio: seeJ. Carter, Ancient Crossroads fig. 31a; RVAp 26/15). 2008.99.0557.jpg
51.7.7 Cf. CVA Copenhagen 6, pl. 272, especially no. 8 (Copenhagen Chr. VIII.76 [from Bari]); Warsaw 198889: CVA Warsaw 6, pl. 26 (shorter). The decorative motifs on this kantharos are also found on a skyphos in Toronto, ROM 972.272.1 (Hayes 1984, 116 no. 198 [ill.]). 2003.97.0936.jpg
56.8.7 Cf. Sparkes and Talcott, Agora, 1406; L. Parlama and N.C. Stampolidis, eds., The City beneath the City. Antiquities from the Metropolitan Railway Excavations (Athens 2000) 176 no. 323 (ill.). 2008.98.0308.jpg
71.6.1 Cf. MuM Sonderliste W (Oct. 1987) no. 60: 'Dionysus mask' (from Delos or Alexandria) 2 c. BC. A.D. Ure compares with Breccia, Guide to Alexandria, 242, fig. 138. 2002.97.0627.jpg
83.2.2 Three other peices in the same box could have possibly came from the same object: Reading 83.2.3, 83.2.4, 83.2.5. 2006.20.0531.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.25 Mary Blomberg further connects it with Athens 1473: see letter from M. Blomberg to J. Gardner 19.01.1984. I. McPhee agrees: see letter from I. McPhee to J. Gardner, dated 27.06.1988. 2005.89.0068.jpg
REDMG:1951.135.1-2 Slenderer and taller than Lipari 10, pl. C.XXIV (tomb 2453 from excavations in ‘Proprietà D’alia, 1986) and with a flatter top than Lipari 2, pl. g4 (from tomb 115). 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). 2004.99.0432.jpg
REDMG:1951.144.1 For comparanda ssociated with the Sea-Horse Group (works of the Darius Painter) cf. Copenhagen 599 (CVA 6, pl. 249.1); Ruvo Jatta Collection (EAA 2, 496); Milan H.A. Collection 453 (CVA 1, pl. 41.6); Taranti from Ruvo (Via 1 Maggie), unpublished. 2005.99.0120.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.2 Cf. a larger example of this shape, Kassel T. 717: CVA Kassel 2, pl. 70.9. Derived from Attic types: cf. Agora 12, pl. 16 nos. 349-50 2005.99.0144.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:1964.1622 For shape RM.25.53.23. For such tapering 'cucumber', survivals of the Late Corinthian Archaic type see Corinth 13, 140-41, fig. 15, e.g. Corinth T1243: Corinth 13, 223 no. 281-5, pl. 40. Typically Corinthian foot. Cf. also (banded) Attic olpai: Agora 12, pl. 12. Many jugs of similar shape (local imitations?) were found in Sicily, e.g. Agrigento, although many without distinct bases. For comparanda, however, see Veder Greco 295 (an example with a slightly upcurving handle, from Contrada Pezzino, tomb 1316). 2004.99.0150.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:1964.1667.1 Cf. Lipari 2, pl. CXXXIX.3a (from tomb 136): banded example in a tomb dated to 'stile Gnathia' 2004.99.0157.jpg
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
