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
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.

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.

REDMG:1935.87.35 Cf. D.B. Thompson, Ptolemaic Oinochae and Portraits in Fainece, no.270, for type and no. 1.
REDMG:1942.5.6.2 For shape cf. Corinth 13, 130-33, fig. 14, e.g. Corinth T2556: Corinth 13, 323 no. X-182, pl. 92; cf. also Corinth 15.3, pl. 69.1841.
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). 2004.99.0428.jpg
REDMG:1951.146 Cf. Corinth T1722: 13 no. 156-3, pl. 20; Corinth 15, pl. 26. Gr. 172-d
REDMG:1951.157.1 No precise comparanda have been found but for a female head to left, between tendrils, on a squat lekythos, see Fasan, Meo-Evoli inv. 172-74: Reho-Bumbalova 1979, 141 nos. 82-84, pl. 70.
REDMG:1951.1718 For shape cf. Corinth KP 2534: Corinth 15.3, 354 no. 2230, pl. 78. 2008.99.0259.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.1 Reading 37.11.4 (CVA Reading 1, pl. 34.5) and Reading 47.2.1. For shape cf. Agora 12, no. 361; 2004.99.0612.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.13 For shape cf. Corinth T 2621: Corinth 13, 187 no. 162-4, pl. 25
REDMG:1953.25.3 For decoration cf. Corinth T1455: Corinth 13, 213 no. 257-5, pl. 34 2004.99.0355.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.39 But compare to Lipari examples, especially Lipari 7, pls. 54-55 (tomb 2125); Bernabò Brea and Cavalier 1997, ch. 9; Biscari Coll. inv. 4306 (Catania 2000165 no. 134 [ill.]) 2005.99.0148.jpg
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:1953.25.68 For shape cf. Corinth T1427: Corinth 13, 244 no. 338-3, pl. 52. 2003.93.0323.jpg
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:1964.1624 For shape cf. Corinth T1537: Corinth 13, 190 no. 170-2, pl. 27 2004.99.0139.jpg
REDMG:1964.1625 Cf. Corinth T3082: Corinth 13, 174 no. 142-c, pl. 19; Corinth 15.3, pl. 69.1831. 2004.99.0126.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:1964.1647 See Corinth 13, 130-32 fig. 14. Cf. especially Corinth T1443: Corinth 13, 256 no. 373-2, pl. 60.
REDMG:1964.1678 Cf. Corinth 15.3, pl. 68.1767. Cf. also Agora 12, pl. 46, no. 1427 (a more refined piece)
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
