13.10.23 Almost identical to Quebec, Musée de l'Amérique Française inv. 1991.1711: CCA 16 (1996) 132 no. 493. V. Karageorghis notes that such alabastra made of local gypsum (a material used since the Late Bronze Age) are common in the Salamis Necropolis throughout the Classical period: Excavations at Salamis 3 (1973) 197. Compare also to a 'false alabastron' made of limestone in Sydney, Nicholson Museum 47.342 (Cambridge Loan no. 103): CCA 20 (2001) 123 no. 346 and some such alabastra found at Salamis: V. Karageorghis, Excavations at Salamis IV.1-2 (1970) 86 no. 8, pls. CXIII and CCXXXVII (Cellarka) 2008.03.0042.jpg

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
13.10.5 So little of the dagger is preserved, yet enough of its size and especially handle to be compared to Nicosia, Arpera Tomb 205, Gamma 143: H.W. Catling, Cypriot Bronzework in the Mycenaean World (1964) fig. 15.5, 9 2010.99.0128.jpg
13.10.6 For the use of the reel (pierced, with rings attached) see H. Matthäus, Metallgefässe und Gefässuntersätze der Bronzezeit, der geometrischen und archaischen Periode auf Cypern (Munich pl. 26 no. 373 and pl. 47.nos. 498 (Tamassos) and 499. 2008.03.0009.jpg

26.12.6 CVA Moscow 7, 12.5; seven similar vases found at Rhitsona in graves of c. 580 BC: NC p.314 fig. 158. 2003.03.0086.jpg

29.6.1 Cf. Cast of the Boston Throne (Ure 29.6.2)
30.11.1 Boeotian imitation of Corinthian (cf. Payne NC pp.202-3, 341; AA 1933 pp.8-11; Beazley, Hesperia 13 (1944) p. 44-45) 2016.99.0214.jpg
45.6.31 Cf. CVA Michigan, pl. 29.8. Shape: cf. JRG Bonn publ. no. 32. Cf. Vollkommer Unteritalischen Vasen 1995, 60-61 no. 34 (another e.g. of this shape) attributed to JRG's Bonn Owl Group. 2003.98.0048.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. 2011.98.0080.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
71.12.5 Type of Rhitsona grave 123 (Rhitsona 13946) 2004.95.0149.jpg
E.62.31 This was a favourite shape for vases of syenite, porphyry, dionite and other hard stones. 2002.98.0039.jpg
L.2011.1.48 Catalogue of British Museum, vol. II, no 835-839 2011.97.0370.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.30 CVA compares shape to Boeotian BF pyxides to second half of 4th c. Cf. Corinth 13, 149 and pl. 56, 357.7-9.
REDMG:1947.13.1 Cf. RM 159.51 (the B sides of each vase are particularly close) and Verona 162 (CVA IV D, pl. 6.1). 2005.90.0016.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). 2004.99.0428.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:1951.152 Much of the glaze has been fired red.The fabric seems Campanian, although the shape, especially rim, is Sicilian
REDMG:1951.159.1 Cf. RM.78.13.47 (The B sides of each vase are particularly close) and Verona 162 (CVA IVD, pl. 6.1) 2005.89.0030.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:1953.25.27 Ure's 'Rhitsona Class P' (Ure 1927, 54) and Haspels' 'Little Lion Class' (ABL 107-109). One of the later examples of this class, on account of its slender profile (much slimmer than RM.1953.25.26) and thick disk foot. Cf. Reading 45.6.15: CVA Reading 1, pl. 11.13 (nearly identical except for a red band at the center of the body, rather than the top, and more careful work on the shoulder). 2005.99.0085.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.38 Cf. Corinth 13, 146-48; the lid of Corinth 15.3, pl. 69.1815 has a similar ‘step-down’ top. 2003.93.0102.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:1953.25.52 Cf. Reading 22.3.40 (a decorated version of the same shape) and Lipari 2, 167, pl. CXXX.3b (tomb 465) 2004.99.0216.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: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:1964.1677.1 Corinth C-37-592: Corinth 7.1, 48.169, pl. 23.169, of identical shape, slightly larger, and similar decoration.
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
