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.

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
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.). 2010.98.0267.jpg
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.

REDMG:1953.25.35 For other Italian lekythoi with a similar net pattern at Reading cf. 22.3.34 and 50.4.8. Hayes 1984, 169 suggests that this is the same ware as Gnathia net lekythoi. 2001.99.0036.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.
