2007.10.2.305 A male figure stands over another figure, prostrate on the ground. The standing figure (probably male) is dressed in a cloak and tunic and holds a blade or scythe in his right hand. The standing figure appears to be holding the decapitated head of the second figure in his left hand. Behind the figure prostrate on the ground is an ox whose front legs are raised from the ground. To the right of the cast a tree or bush is depicted with a large bird (possibly a peacock) perched on one of its branches. At the centre of the cast there is what appears to be a standard or post with two serpents coiled about it. The serpent's heads face each other at the top of the post.

35.4.4 The vessel is decorated with impressed (stamped) decoration. Shoulder: there are six inverted palmettes (voluted with narrow divisions), linked with incised curving lines. There is also a ridge at the junction of the shoulder and body, below which there is the motif of ellipsoid tongues (eggs) contoured by a line each. Body: At about the middle, there are six, widely spread double-leaved motives (teardropped leaves) and a continuous, incised line that goes through them. The joining point of the body and foot is reserved and so is the edge of the foot and the resting surface. 2005.88.0051.jpg
48.4.1 The rim of the mouth has leaves all round it. The outside of the rim has a thick black band. On the main zone are pairs of ivy leaves (one pointing up the other down), joined by their vines. In between these are pairs of dot flowers. All of this lies between two pairs of horizontal lines. The slight slope towards the foot is black. The top of the foot is reserved but appears to have once been black. The base of the foot is reserved except for a thin black band on the inside of the rim, another about halfway in, and then a small dot in the centre of the base. The inside of the pot is completely black. 2002.97.0347.jpg
50.12.6 Fragment of comparatively fine open vase. Very pale clay. Interior black band about 1 cm wide just inside rim. Exterior lip grooved and painted black. Small bit of painted ornament. 2003.98.0096.jpg
60.8.1 Reserved bands on lip and handle zones, heavy black line on lip and dividing the two zones. Handles reserved underneath. Interior black except for a reserved disk in the bottom with two concentric reddish circles inside, then two purple circles applied over black about half-way up, then another single circle just below lip. Reserved thin band on the top of the rim, in the interior. Exterior black beneath the two reserved bands, exterior of footring black, base reserved. 2002.97.0506.jpg
73.9.7 The inside is black with a reserved band around the inside of the rim and again roughly half way down the inside. In the centre is the remains of a brown disk. On the outside, only part of the rim and main zone of skyphos remains, as well as one handle. The handle is mostly black, but reserved on the inside. The main zone shows: parts of three palmettes, one upright, one reversed, then another upright in black. A thick black band runs round the outside of the rim, a thin one underneath the main zone. The stem is black as is the upper ridge of rim of the foot. The lower ridge is reserved, as is the base of the foot, except for a band of red/brown about half a cm in. The inside of the foot is hollow and reserved, except for a very thin red/brown band, and a dot in the centre. 2002.97.0187.jpg
77.9.1 About half foot and side to H. of c.1.5 cm, of small cup. Clay pink. Red for black inside and out, with res about 1 cm wide running diagonally across side and foot. Underneath, broad purple ring in centre, and groove near edge. Outside, two narrow pu
REDMG:1953.25.81 The piece consists of half of a foot, which is broken about halfway down its length. The half remaining includes all five toes, with slightly curling little toes and a rather stumpy big toe. The foot sits upon a thick sandal. Under this is a chunk of unworked marble, presumably part of the original base of the statue, which takes up about the same amount of mass as the carved foot does. This underside is rough and worn. The break halfway through the foot in fairly clean, leaving a rough, but planar surface. 2002.97.0588.jpg
TEMP.2002.7.1 Bowl with two handles, the rim has a black band around the top which goes both inside and outside the bowl. Below this on the inside, is a very thick black band that stops to leave an empty circle in the centre of the bowl. The handles begin about an inch below the rim on the outside of the bowl, but curve up and out to finish roughly on level with the rim. They are painted with black glaze only on the underside. Above the base of the handles there is a subtle ridge, below which there are three lines of pattern, which look like petals. Below these, there is a thin black band, a small space, and then a thick black band which goes down to the ridge of the foot. The foot itself appears to consist of two flattish disks, the lower with a black band round it. On the bottom of the foot, there is another black band part way in, and then a smaller one with a black dot in the middle. 2002.97.0223.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.24 Fragment of pot, including slight buldge where handle begins. Exterior, black lines on white background. At the right edge of the top there is a triangluar bit of black that looks like it originally belonged to a square surrounded on both verticle sides by twin sets of thin brown verticle lines. Less than 1 from the top there are two brown lines that follow the curve of the jug horizontally spaced .3 apart. Under these lines on the left is a large2.5 hieght figure eight pattern made up of three lines that swirl around to create the eight, with little v's on the outside of the eight pointed away from where the figure eight lines cross. On the right side, two bworn/black lines curve around where the handle would have begun. The handle section is all black, although chipped. Under the figure eight is a .6 thick black lines running horizontally around the pot, broken by a thin pink line a little below the middle. there are two other thin pink lines equidistant from this first one, one above and one below it by about .4, the top pink line being right above the top of the black line. Underneith the bottom pink line is a segment of a different pattern. Interior is black over pink and white, which is worn away enough in many parts to see the pink and white colors. two thin and faded white lines form bands near the top.
TEMP.2003.6.9 Rim section of a bowl. Exterior white with a band consisting of twin brown lines with alternating black and white rectangles interior along the top .3. There are two small blueish sploches marring the otherwise well preserved surface. Interior is black over white. The white shows through in a line along the edge for about .2 and then there is a brown line, and under this the rest of the background is black. Near the top of this black section is a set of white lines with white dots set in between them at regular intervals. Under this pattern is another thin white line. Under this is on part of a triangle pattern consising of a white outlined triangle with a white line forming a second triangle within the first and a red dot at the center of the triangle.
TEMP.2003.7.5 Curved and painted on both sides. The "outer" concave side is painted light beige with two small brown bands running lengthwise along it. One band has another smaller brown band (about twice as thin) running beside it throughout the fragment. The other band has a smiliar smaller band, but only measuring about a quarter of the length and running off into the edge. The "inner" convex side is painted dark brown with two white bands running lengthwise. One of the white bands is dashed, while the other is complete.
TEMP.2003.7.7 Fragment from the central part of a bowl. Interior brown, with three pairs of white lines beginning about 1.5 from the top, 3.0 from the top, and 4.0 from the top. Under the second set of lines, are three white tear drop shapes that used to surround the center. Exterior white with pattern of alternating red and yellow/brown lines .2 to .8 apart.
TEMP.2003.8.1 (a)Part of the rim of an open jug of some sort. The inside segment of the rim is painted black, with numerous small bits having been chipped off. Moving outwards, the rim consists of the inside of the pot wall, which then splays out in a flat top rim, and then falls down again in a second wall that is left dangling from the outer rim. So, moving from the inside outwards on the underside, there is a valley of about 1.0 wide and 1.5 deep until the top of the second rim (which is peaked) is reached. The outward facing side of this downward pointed rim consists of alternating lines of black dots and thin black lines which run around the entire outer diameter of the rim. There are two rows of dots and two lines, alternating which each other, all of which are heavily worn. The top part of the rim, which would be facing upwards if the pot were complete, is about 2.2 wide and flat, marked with black raised lines that repeat about every .3 and which start at the outer edge and are 1.7 long, and painted black. These lines are heavily worn. There are also two significant chips in the top of this rim, each about 2 long. (b)Another part of the same rim to the same vessel. The same dot and line pattern runs around the outer diameter. On top the lines which are thicker at the end pointing into the pot are repeated, a palmette decorates the larger flat area of the handle region.
