35.4.5 Reading 53.8.4; Melbourne, Potter 1984.0256 (MUV 67), (with a palmette particularly close to this Reading example) published in Connor and Jackson 2000, 194-95 no. 71, ill.; and many other examples collected in Ure 1953. 2001.99.0031.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

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
71.6.1 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
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: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: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:1953.25.29 Comparable in shape and iridescence to RM.1953.25.28. 2003.93.0397.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: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
