2007.10.2.311 A large female figure reclines in the centre of the scene. She is dressed in robes and is wearing either a helmet or a cap (Phyrigian cap?). Her left arm is resting on a disembodied (bearded male) head and her left hand holds a staff which rests against her upper-arm or shoulder. Beneath the large female figure and to the left of the male head are two shapes which possibly represent boats or ships. These shapes might indicate that the portion of the scene below the female figure is in fact a river or the sea. In turn this might suggest that the disembodied head is emerging from the water (possibly identifying it as a river god). To the left of the scene a very small figure appears to be presenting the large female figure with something, possibly a basket or urn. A slightly larger figure, leaning on a stick, looks on from beneath a tree. Above the very small figures head are two animals (presumably intended to appear to be further off in the background). One at least of these animals is certainly a horse. To the right of the large female figure's head there is a representation of a stag. At the top of the scene in a central position are three shapes. It is unclear exactly what these are (possibly huts or houses of some description?).

Next to him there is a draped female figure (Demeter?), holding a wreath (black circle) and branches with dots on both sides that surround her. The details on her drapery have been executed with added red and so are those for her head-dress. There are also traces of added white on her neck. On top of the fragment there is part of a motif of tongues contoured with ellipsoid lines and a line that encircles this pattern. v) On the left, there is part of the satyr's lower legs (above the knees towards the feet) and the lower end of his himation. Next to him there is the termination of the female figure's branch, close to a similar inverted grave-stele? and part of an object that resembles an animal paw (lion-shaped foot of chair or couch) . Below these, there is a line on which they seem to step on. Next, a guilloche between two pairs of lines and at the bottom part of a radial-shaped motif with a line that contours it on top. vi) A line and black, teardropped spot. vii) There is a line on whose right top side stands a rectangular object with a rectangular surface in the middle being reserved. Below, part of two lines on top of part of the guilloche. viii) Small part of shoulder and neck: there is a black spot, a thin band, a red line on top of a plastic ring (joining point of neck and shoulder) and part of a tongue-shaped pattern contoured by a line on the shoulder. There is also a part of two lines in the interior. ix) Part of the guilloche, the two lines underneath and the radial-shaped motif at the bottom. x) Tiny bit of the guilloche and the two lines below it and part of the radial-shaped motif. xi) Part of voluted palmette and tongue-shaped motif. xii) Part of the floral motif (of a three-pointed flower)? with lines that form a rhombus with a dot in the middle. xiii) Part of the shoulder and the spring of a handle. On the top there is the tongue-shaped motif, encicled by a line and below it an inverted palmette. The spring of the handle is black and next to it there are short, diagonal incisions. There is also a tiny spot of black colour in the interior. xiv) On the left, part of leaf-shaped (heart-like) motives (part of thyrsos?), close to a band of black colour, of undecipherable shape. Next to that, there is the lower part of a female draped figure, with small crosses on it. At the right side there is black and white colour that forms ovaloid shapes (?). xv) A black band and on the left part of the female drapery.
45.10.22 a: The upper surface of the rim is reserved, although glazed. However, the side surfaces (internal and external) are black (apart from a reserved area that would not have been visible if the handle was not missing). The neck is also black on the inside, however, there is a perpetual motif of palmettes on the external surface. These are double palmettes (5 narrow divisions upwards and 5 similar ones downwards) that look as if chained together by a horizontal row of small rings and each such palmette is separated from the other by a vertical line with wider endings, while thin, curved lines (above and below) frame each palmette. The sides of the handle bear a black band each and there is also a thin line underneath them that contours the end of the neck. On the carination that divides the neck from the shoulder there is a thin line with added red colour. The shoulder bears a motif of tongues, divided by vertical lines, while a line underneath contours them. The motif does not appear under the surface of the handle. At some point underneath this pattern there is the beginning of another motif (black with 3 dots of added red and scale-like incisions). The interior of the rest of the vessel is reserved, since it is an amphora. b: It bears exactly the same motif as the previous neck bit. c: From the branch of a three-peaked floral motif there emerge two curved lines that are downwards and upwards, each forming an ellipsoid-shaped frame from whose lower (in the case of the curved line that goes downwards) or upper (in the case of the other line) endings form one floral motif each. The left one is a voluted palmette with 5 petal shaped divisions and the right one is a three-pointed flower, similar to the central floral motif, but bigger. Although the upper part of this pattern is not preserved apart from the starting point of the motives, it is certain that this would have been the heraldic motif depicted. Underneath this area there is a thin, black line and below that, a pattern of guilloche ( branches with tear dropped endings interwoven together) with a row of dots, framed (above and below) by two pairs of concentric lines. Towards the end of the fragment (which is also towards the end of the vessel) there is a radial-shaped motif, two lines and the rest of the surface is black. d: It is a part of the body's area that bears the guilloche pattern and the radial-shaped motif underneath, but one third of it is not preserved. e: On the left there is the upper part of probably a palmette (two endings of petal-shaped divisions). Next to that there is the depiction of a draped lower body part. The drapery is formed by the incisions on a black surface. There are diagonal incisions and wavy endings to denote the folds of an himation, as well as the lower termination of the chiton, which is suggested by two almost horizontal incisions, a wavy line and another horizontal incision. the drawing is detailed and clear. f: The part between the surface above the knees and a bit below the calf of a male figure that wears a short chiton (incised, wavy folds are visible above the knee), as well as grieves with out curving terminations (Hermes?) of added red colour, now fadded away. On his left there is the upper part of a palmette and on his left there is a diagonal line, with rows of dots on either side (characteristic of Dionysus). Very clear drawing. g: Half of the three-peaked flower, a bit of a black line and two petal-shaped motives. On the side, there is part of the dotted branch and what appears to be part of a figure's drapery (upper right body part ?), with some incisions used to render details. h: Between the lower body part of two figures there is part of the dotted branch. What is preserved from the right figure is incised lines and circles on a black surface. The left figure's drapery (peplos and himation ?) is preserved (below the waist), consisting of incised diagonal and wavy lines to denote the folds. i: A central male figure's (Dionysus) body from shoulder to legs is visible and surrounded by a dotted branch. He is standing between two figures. The male figure (there is part of beard with added red) on the left holds part of the branch with his palm (upper body without the head is preserved). The only visible part of the draped figure on the right is part of the legs. Incisions are used to render details. j: Apollo playing his lyre (kithara). The head (in profile, facing right), right hand and part of the god's front side of the body is visible, as well as the largest part of the lyre. Part of a dotted branch exists in the background. Incisions have been used to render the chords of the lyre as well as for the eye, contour of hair, ear and contour of the god's body, while a taenia (fillet) on his head is in added black colour. k: Only part of a thin, black line is preserved. l: two broad black bands that overlap at some point. Incisions and the ending of a dotted branch (part of draped figure?). 2008.98.0366.jpg

45.10.7A-B Lid: The top surface bears part of a central medallion (dots contoured by double, semi-spherical line), encircled by a black line, a red band, a broader black band and a red line. There is also an ivy spray between the last red line and a similar one. At the rim there is a rather careless tongue pattern, with inner dots (identical to the one of the central medallion, only frammed by thin, black lines). Sides: There is the representation of women pursued by the winged Eros. The naked Eros is flying and his himation with white spots on its top is falling over his forearm. At the level of his face there is an inscription, with white colour KALOS and underneath, KALH, above a bent fillet with thin, short, white lines emerging from its endings. The first of the women is headed right, having extended her right? hand towards Eros and holding and raising slightly her drapery (in order to run faster). Her head is missing, but she is probably looking backwards, to see the advancing Eros. The scene is reproduced again: Anoher Eros pursues another woman, who is running towards an altar? (rectangular, altar-shaped constuction, higher than the figures with a decoration of a large cross and dots in between). Among them there is again the inscribed KALOS, KALH. Many fragments have not survived, however this woman's head is not missing. She is looking backwards and wears a diadema, made of white lines. At the other side of the altar? there is another woman approaching it, having escaped the first Eros, but looking back to see him. She wears a white diadema and the same inscription is between her and the Eros. The scene is framed by two red, concentric lines (above and below the figures). The bottom surface is left reserved. Body: There is decoration of laurel stems and berries around the outer surface with details made of added white. This motif is framed (above and below with red, thick lines).

Single ribbon handle which is unevenly bent, has horizontal lines down back and is reserved underneath. Procession of seven mourning women, in profile all facing right, framed by wavy lines, with two bands above and below and three vertical lines at right and left of panel. In front of the sevnth woman there ae three loop patterns, with dots. The women are wearing long garments, have long hair and ftech one arm over their head, as a mourning gesture. Face drawn in outline. No use of incision for any details. Below 'SSSS' pattern, then horizontal lines. Moulded ridge and groove below around foot. Base is flat and reserved. 2008.98.0351.jpg
56.8.1 Reserved inside. Paint on outside is black, lustreless and largely worn towards base of body. Two handles painted black on top but reserved underneath. In handle zone, within a panel framed with bands of dots is an ivy spray (on both sides). Lower band of dots carried round below handles. Bottom of object is black until reserved band just above foot. Flaring foot, black on top and reserved and conical underneath. 2003.97.0945.jpg
56.8.8 On the exterior of the rim, S pattern. A fight of three warriors between onlookers; on the left, an onlooker between two runners, on the right, a runner between two onlookers and at the back a floral motif (lotus-palmette cross?): Two semi-spherical palmettes chained in the middle by circular bands, dotted in the centre, and held on a columnar motif with similar (only more conical) palmettes as endings (top and bottom) by black strips. Many of the figures appear to be holding spears (in the case of warriors) or have in front of them the same attribute (long, thin, vertical or diagonal lines). There are variations in the rendering of armour, hairstyles and drapery, mostly executed by incisions. The scene is framed by bands, top and bottom. Above the top band is a reserved circle, a thin, red, circular band and then the vessel is black up to the base where there is another red circular band. The interior of the footring is black. The broad, reserved base has a black circle inside a black band in the centre. Additionally, there are six dots (four are bigger) placed randomly on the reserved area of the bottom. Interior: The surface is black from the rim to the tondo, except for two, red, concentric bands approximately 1 cm within the carination, and a similar red band framing the tondo. Inside the tondo is a representaion of a cock in profile to the right with a flower-bud emerging in the background. Red paint: tail, wings. Moreover, incised over the red ring surrounding the tondo there is a mercantile graffito (?). The handles are black but reserved within. The underside of the foot decorated with black dot at the centre, surrounded by black band and 6 black dots around it, uncanonically placed 2003.95.0104.jpg
57.7.9 High, curved handle attached to triangular mouth. Traces of black paint. Many bands of brown/yellow around body. Vine pattern (?) or leaves on stem (?) still surviving around middle in dark brown. Dark brown band just above the base.
58.2.4 The lip of the jug is decorated with black lines compartmentalising the area; within every other compartment there is a design of lines of black dots. This design is carried on part way into the interior of the vase and onto the spur. The underneath of the rim is delineated with a black line. The neck is decorated with three compartments of decoration of unequal size. The compartments are divided by two black lines which enclose crosses surrounded by diamonds. Within two of the compartments there is decoration consisting of lines of vertical dots hemmed in by horizontal lines on either side; underneath are crosses with dots in each section and above is a mixture of crosshatching, lines and dots. The third section is undecorated apart from six groups of three diagonal lines, which form a vertical stripe of decoration under the handle. The body has decoration of long and short double lines containing cross-hatching reaching for the base (within the gaps there is a cross with dots in each section), below two such lines enclosing a string of continuous horizontal diamonds. The base is decorated on both faces with lines and circles. The handle is also decorated with black lines. 2003.92.0082.jpg
60.1.1 Bird; three dots in triangle above tail. On either side two markings. Beneath handle palmette flanked by two markings. Neck (upper part), mouth, and top of handle black; also lower part of body and foot. Base underneath reserved. 2003.99.0032.jpg
61.6.3 Glazed black on the interior, except at the bottom of the bowl. Exterior glazed black (dipped) on the rim, handles, except near attachment (but a small line emerges to the front of the bowl, from either handle). The floral frieze consists of: palmette, upright, flanked by curling tendrils from which hang smaller palmettes (side A), a simple enclosed palmette (under missing handle); two upright palmettes with curling tendrils, although the palmette on the right has two curling tendrils at the left and none at the right (side B); simple palmette under handle. Beneath the floral frieze is a thin black band above a band of black dots. Black glaze also on the lower part of the body, stem, and top of foot, and interior surface of the foot (with extra paint spilling over onto the resting surface and the underside). 2010.98.0337.jpg
62.10.1 Black-glazed inside of rim and lip; broad black band at top of shoulder, above the handles; between the handles, on either side, a frieze of thin rays, a line of fine dots, and a simple maeander. Around the body two broad black bands, and black-glazed upper element of exterior of foot, but otherwise reserved. A faint rouletting marks the junction of the body and foot. Handle zones reserved but handles dipped in black-glaze, which drips from the left side of one handle. Under each handle a design comprised of a vertical band (?) above a series of four chevrons. 2008.98.0333.jpg
65.6.1 The mouth (exterior and interior), larger upper part of the neck and the handle are black (uneven and at most areas reddish brown) apart from the upper surface of the rim, which is red. There is a grey line on the neck and the surface of the shoulder bears decoration of voluted palmettes with narrow divisions and tendrils, widely spread to fill the space. The upper part of the body bears a meander pattern between two pairs of brown lines (above and below). Every fourth meander the pattern is interrupted by a saltive cross with a dot on each one of the triangular surfaces around it. The meander pattern continues as far as the scene below it is depicted. Main scene: A young man, wearing underwear? is seated on his himation, at the left side of a two-stepped tomb or pedimental funerary monument (grave-stele). At the right of the scene, a woman wearing a black and red peplos is bringing offerings. There is a brown line below them and the rest of the vessel is black, with the exception of two exteremely thin lines that are reserved at the joining point of the foot to the body and the side surface of the foot that is red, although the slip has not been evenly applied on the whole of the surface. Lastly, the resting surface is reserved. 2003.95.0173.jpg
65.6.2 Head and shoulders of a Neolithic deity. Square head and oblong arms. The top part has three holes bored through down either side and two partly bored holes near the top representing eyes and three partly bored holes representing the mouth in a horizontal line above 'neck'. Single partially bored hole on neck and one just above the break. Bored hole at the end of each arm. The other side is flatter than the side with the visible holes. Very smooth and highly polished object, creamy-yellow colour with naturally formed pattern.
71.12.1 The interior and the exterior of the mouth as well as the handle glazed. On the exterior, the black is fired brown. At base of neck, ridge in place of drip-ring painted purple. Shoulder: ivy leaves on each side of central purple line(six above, seven below); on body five inverted opening lotus flowers with central petals white. Above them row of white dots. Lower half of body and exterior of the foot glazed black (turning red in places). Resting surface and the underside of the foot reserved. 2002.97.0702.jpg
73.9.2 Handle, three quaters black glaze, situated above ivy leaf standing on tendrils and tips of two leaves of palmette on right. There is a thick black band around the rim and two thinner black bands beneath the ivy leaf. 2002.97.0212.jpg
73.9.6 A small fragment with possible figure of bird (front part and head missing) and above this, a circle design with a dot in the centre. The back of the fragment is covered in black glaze. 2002.97.0193.jpg
73.9.8 The rim, leading to a band on the ouside is black, as is the entire inside of the fragment. Below the band on the outside is a horizontal 'S' shape pattern with small dots above and below it. To the left of this is a big black blob, which is slightly raised to suggest a handle ? Below the 'S' shape are four parallel lines, below which is a thin brownish band, a gap, and then what looks like the edge of a black circle. The second fragment has no rim and also shows a black blob which looks like it should be the base of a second handle. The inside of the fragment is againentirely black. On the outside of this fragment, there is no 'S' shape pattern or parallel lines, but there is a brownish band, below which is the edge of what seems to be a black circle, the same as fragment 'a'. 2002.97.0185.jpg
78.12.19 Shoulder is decorated with a moulded pattern of a vine, on the discus is a standing figure orientated with head towards the nozzle, holding a hydra in right hand and to the left is an amphora. Above the figures head, on the decline of the discus is a pattern of rays. Pale yellow wash. 2005.01.0097.jpg
78.7.1 Two handles on opposite sides at top. Inside black with convex centre. Around rim are incised pendants on side A and two parallel lines with row of white dots above and below on side B. Below pendants is a pair of incised lines, a row of red dots, a grape vine with pendant grapes, leaves and tendrils. At base are three uneven circular shapes above reserved band. Black band around rim of foot. Base reserved and raised. Glaze partly faded. 2008.98.0440.jpg
80.7.1 Interior glazed black, except a reserved band around the bottom of the bowl. Lip, lugs and exterior of handles also glazed black. Exterior: a band of lotus leaves on the rim, and a figural frieze on the body, with black bands above and below it; another black band just above the foot; the exterior and interior sides of the foot ring are black, while the resting surface is reserved; the underside is reserved, except for a black dot with black and red circles (one each) around it. The figural frieze shows: two confronting sirens, in profile, on either side of an inverse lotus bud; a water bird, profile to the left, turning its head profile to the right, back over its bod; two confronting panthers, both turning their heads to the front, on either side of an inverse lotus bud; another water bird, similar to the first except its beak touches its back. A 6-pointed star decorates the field beneath each creature. 2010.98.0222.jpg
83.9.35 One side has a single flower on it. If you are looking at the fragment with the flower at the bottom, then above that there is a band which has up-side-down 'U' shapes inside it. The other side seems to have alternate black and terracotta strips on it. One of the terracotta strips appears to be indented. 2006.20.0146.jpg
83.9.5 Flat, black, open bowl with moulded foot. Base of foot is reserved, with black inner ring and a tiny black dot in the middle of the inner ring. Outside the reserved area is a thick black ring outlining base of foot. Above the black ring there is a thin red line around the bottom of the body. 2006.20.0127.jpg
85.3.1 All around the neck (except where the handles would have been attached) is a band of chained together, inverted teardrop shapes and dots within two black lines. Main decoration on body consists of two bordered figural scenes; Side A: Dionysus on donkey led by boy; Side B: Hephaistos (Dionysos, according to Mannack) on donkey led by boy. Both scenes are bordered by two lines of vertical dots between three vertical black lines at the sides, and a series of alternating thick and thin vertical black lines above. At the bottom of the body is a band of upward pointing rays. 2007.01.0097.jpg
E.23.2 Funerary stele with vulture wings surrounding the solar disk, common during the time period. Below the wings is the text of the stele, surviving intact. Two men are depicted adoring the god Re-Horakhty, whose presence is indicated not only by the uraeus and sun disk but also his name inscribed in the text. It has been suggested that the dress of the figures indicates that they are Nubians; this is confirmed by the oddity of their personal names. The sky is depicted above the winged disk, each end being supported by the symbol of the west (on the left, only the top of the feather survives) and the east (on the right, more or less complete). A signature, possibly belonging to Flinders Petrie has been found above the head of the right hand figure. There is only one viable interpretation possible, when one combines the depictions with the details found within the text. The stele depicts the man Serep and his son Tkr-Irt-Hrw, not as has been assumed Serep with his Ka. A personal Ka has no need of the title m33 khrw, which is a title of the deceased, thus two deceased are depicted. There is no question that Serep is a man as he is depicted in male dress and has the male symbol after his name. There is enough evidence to show that the stele was once painted. Red pigment on the sun disk of the god is the most apparent, though a similar (if not the same) is found in several of the hieroglyphics and on the deceased as well as faint traces on the column to the right. A yellow stain remains in the first two columns, which could be remains of the paint used to fill in the columns. The combination of colours matches well with the red pigment found in the glyphs. 2007.99.0044.jpg
E.23.44 Glazed blue amulet in the shape of a head wearing a crown. The head is vaguely reminiscent of that of the dwarf god Bes. The top of the crown has been threaded for a string for wearing. The eyebrows are large triangles, above the sacred eyes which are joined. The nose is snout-like in between two puffed out cheeks. The mouth is thin lipped and small verticle lines indicate a beard. 2002.98.0994.jpg
E.62.28 Tall red jar tapering to a narrow, flat base. Around the top there is a band of black pigment (th. ca. 3.0-4.0), above a band of yellow pigment (max. th. 4.0). Treated on the interior with haematite (iron oxide) and burnished. 2005.89.0014.jpg
E.62.5 There is a small band of carved / incised detail at the thickest end. Carving is a simple cross-hatch pattern with three carved bands above and below; the pattern extends below the bottom bands, perhaps by mistake.
E.63.9 Light green pendant. The image is the goddess of Hathor, goddess of music and dance. Here she is depicted in the form of a highly stylized cow. At the top of the pendant is a loop for threading. The pendant is flat and has the cow-head engraved in the centre with an arch of concentric lines above the head Below the head on either side are parallel vertical lines divided by one horizontal line on both sides. 2002.98.0219.jpg
L.2005.7.11 Obv: Female head (Arethusa?) wearing olive wreath, surrounded by 4 dolphins. Rev: Quadriga, Flying Nike crowning horses, above; lion, below 2006.98.0006.jpg
L.2005.7.6 Obv: Female head, wearing pendant earring and necklace, hair tied back and up; four dolphins. Rev: Quadriga (four-horse chariot), Nike flying above to crown charioteer; dolphin below. 2006.98.0011.jpg
L.2011.1.51 Pattern on the handle(short horizontal lines on the edge, one on the left, two on the right); moulded ring at the junction between rim and neck, with a pattern (short vertical incised lines) above and below. 2011.97.0332.jpg
L.2011.1.53 Red glaze. Two figures in low-relief: on the right a human figure with legs outturned, on the left a human face (mask) with a sort of base or plate on the head; above the plate two legs of an incomplete human figure. On the sides of this composition two vertical patterns, composed by short horizontal signs with below a six-ends star. 2011.97.0356.jpg
L.2014.8.2 Obverse: Portrait personification of Roma facing left Reverse: Wolf suckling twins with two stars above
REDMG:1926.99.54 Mouth black interior and exterior; reserved neck; black on exterior of handle; band of black vertical bars above white band decorated black rays on shoulder, extending to carination. Body, top: white band decorated with two rows of black dots joined by a thin black zigzag (at front, only), above two black lines; figural scene (front only); white band; black band between two black lines; black to foot and on top of foot; otherwise reserved. Figural scene is of a chariot behind which stand three draped female figures (two women, standing profile to right, towards a third figure, standing profile to left. A fourth female figure sits profile to left, in front of the chariot. All four figures are draped, wreathed (with red bands), and have white faces. 2003.93.0391.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.1 Black glaze except for reserved band at join with foot and underside, including resting surface. At the front of the body, the shoulder is decorated with an incised ovolo grieze between two incised lines; this frieze is accentuated with white inscribing the eggs and white dots between the eggs. Beneath is another pair of incised lines between two rows of white dots. The body is decorated with a red band from which emerges, above and below, (ivy) sprays, in added white ‘gilded’ with yellow; two clusters of grapes (again white ‘gilded’ with yellow) hang from this band. Some clusters of three red dots on lower part of body. 2005.99.0060.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.13 Inside black except reserved band at rim 0.5cm wide. Red and black band around rim, beneath which is a reserved band. Thin black and red band just above handle followed by further wide reserved band approximately 1.2 cm wide. One handle reddish brown, the other black, both dipped. Lower body black with one dark red-brown patch below redddish brown handle. White deposits on joint between body and foot. Flared foot also black with reserved base and broad resting surface. 2005.89.0090.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.15 Metallic black glaze except reserved band where body joins foot, slightly streaked above; reserved underside. 2003.93.0012.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.2 Inside of mouth and exterior of rim black, while lip is reserved. Body is mostly reserved. Handles are black on the outside, and reserved on the insides. Below the handles are three thin black bands. The top of the foot and a thick band above it are black, but resting surface and base are reserved. 2002.97.0713.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.21 Mouth: broad band between two narrow bands; handle: horizontal bars; shoulder: daisy pattern; body: band above and below zone of incised scale pattern on black, with incised dot in each scale; below: daisy pattern emerging from narrow band just above base.
REDMG:1935.87.25 Black except for the figural design, with friezes above and below it; reserved but ruddled resting surface. A. Horizontal friezes on neck and below figural scene, consist of two vertical bars alternating with circles, reserved bands above and below. Scene: nude satyr, standing profile to right, with his left foot raised on a rock, faces a draped woman, seated 3/4-view to right, with her head turned profile to left. He raises his right hand towards her, and rests his left arm on his knee. She holds a mirror in her upraised left hand. Five ivy leaves in field between them. B. Horizontal friezes on neck and below figural scene consist of chevrons to left, between reserved bands. Scene: Two draped youths in conversation, face each other on either side of a stele. Yellow and white details: white fillet on satyr, bracelets and necklace on woman, and spots on the mirroron Red wash on reserved areas suggests imitation of Attic red figure. A pair of incised lines run horizontally across side A, and another line runs horizontally across side B; further incised lines around the upper body of the woman indicate that these might be an artist’s guidelines. 2005.89.0068.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.26 Black with two broad bands of superimposed red around upper part of body, one on neck just above moulded ring, two more around lower part, two on foot. Underside reserved. 2002.97.0025.JPG
REDMG:1935.87.31A Red rim; two handles, coloured black. In the handle zone pomegranate pattern in three rows, the middle row red; below, one red line between two black; a broad black band with a pair of superimposed red lines at top and bottom; one red line an done black immediately above foot. Foot-ring black outside, two black rings on resting surface; inside of foot-ring red; on the bottom a central dot and pair of small thin rings, near the circumference a broad ring, all black. The edge of the flange supporting the lid, red. Handles black. Inside of bowl originally black with traces of one pair of red circles. 2003.97.0279.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.32 There is a broad, black band at the interior of the rim. On the top of the rim there are black tongues, apart from the surface of the handles, decorated with palmettes. Waves are used to decorate the edge of the rim, while the handles bear small palmettes on their sides and the rest is painted black, as is the body between. Both neck panels have ivy and dots joined by vine. Both sides of the body show a female head, facing left and wearing a decorated cap with a spiked stephane over it. There is a small window (rectangular motif with black vertical line), top right on both sides. Side A, however, has a strigil with wavy endings above the head, top left. Side B has a knot of hair emerging through the apex of the cap. On both sides there are volute-shaped motives at the end of the cap and below the woman's chin. Side A: The woman wears a black earing (a circle and hanging dots) and a neclace of black beads. A hair with a heart-shaped ending falls vertically over her neck. On the other hand, the woman on side B wears a similar but yellow earing and a neclace made of yellow beads. Both women are framed by two vertical red bands, decorated with two similar motives of a vertical row of dots between thin lines. These columnar patterns seem to support a horizontal red band over the head, ornated with tongues between thin lines (one above and two below). However, the surface under the heads is not identical for both sides. Side A has a red band with dots between lines and side B has two parallel lines and the wave pattern. Both the scenes are partly ruddled and added yellow is used to render the details. Miltos apparently was applied last.The lower half of foot is ruddled. 2005.89.0042.jpg
REDMG:1947.13.1 Black mouth inside and out, otherwise reserved inside. Below the rim, on the lip, is a white laurel wreath, to right. On neck, between black handles, a 9-leaf palmette, with a black dot for heart and black dot on either side of central petal; black ridge between two black lines; frieze of vertical bars beneath each handle; beneath each handle a large palmette above a pair of volutes, from which emerge vegetal ornament. A: Attenuated ovolo frieze between two black lines; white ribbing (painted); two reserved bands; floral frieze with white head, to left, at centre, emerging from a calyx from which emerge also tendrils, berries, volutes, and blossoms; reserved frieze; scene. B: Continuous maeander to right, between two pairs of lines; black ribbing (painted) between two black lines; flanked by vegetal ornament, from which emerges quarter palmettes and volutes, a female head, profile to left, wearing white stephane, and white sakkos, from which emerges curly black hair, at front and black; white drop earring on an inverted triangle. Below the body zone, around the entire vase, is a decorative band consisting of dotted cross squares (1) alternating with stopt maeanders to left (3) between two reserved bands; black below. Scene, A: A woman, standing in 3/4-view to the right, with head profile to right, hair emerging from the back, a sleeveless, belted chiton, a himation draped over her left arm, a pair of white slippers, holds a palmette fan, with white detail, in her upraised left hand, and a branch (similar to a thyrsos) in her left hand, at a diagonal. She also wears a white stephane and a sakkos with black and white detail, from the back of which emerges a tuft of hair, a white beaded necklace between two thin chains (rendered by black lines), and white snake bracelets on each arm. She faces a naiskos enclosure, decorated in gilded white, with thin Corinthian columns and a black pediment, on a podium decorated with a simple continuous maeander to right, between a two pairs of white lines. Enclosed within the naiskos is a warrior, rendered in white with yellow details, seated in 3/4-view to the left, on a himation, with his legs crossed, and his left elbow resting on the back of his seat. He holds a crested helmet in 3/4-view to the right, at which he stares, and a diagonal spear in his left hand. On the ground below him is a small shield. To the right is a nude youth, standing in a reclining pose, 3/4-view to the left, wearing a white fillet in his hair, and white slippers. He holds a himation, bundled up around his left arm, and an opened box as well as a dotted, fringed sash, in his right hand. A thin rectangular element, perhaps a dagger, emerges from the opened box. A (heart shaped) ivy leaf hangs in the field above him. White dotted lines indicate the groundline between all figures. Details on the shoulder rays and, ornaments in the field, and all figural scenes are rendered in added white, sometimes 'gilded' with yellow wash. 2005.90.0016.jpg
REDMG:1950.25.1 Black interior to bottom of rim. Laurel wreath, to right, on neck, above a row of widely spaced dots. Body decorated with egg-and-dot frieze, between reserved bands, which stops short of the handle on either side; figural zone except beneath handle (palmette with floral blossom at centre, three vertical lines at heart, vegetal ornament and flowing tendrils on either side); inverted waves, to right. Exterior surface of foot is ruddled on the upper part. Reserved resting surface and underside except for black circle at centre, surrounded by broad ruddled band, and black on inner foot ring. The figural scene shows a female figure, dressed in a belted, sleeveless chiton, reclining on her front, profile to right, reaching towards a phiale held by Eros, who advances profile to left, crouched and holding a wreath in his lowered right hand and a phiale in his upraised left hand. Both wear their hair identically: spike stephanai, sakkoi, and pony tails. Behind Eros a bird, profile to the right, on a perirrhanterion (pedestal basin). Added white, ‘gilded’ with yellow, on floral and vegetal ornament, headdresses, wings, and basin. 2003.93.0334.jpg
REDMG:1951.131.1 Black rim and neck, except for a thin reserved band just above the join with the body; body decorated with three reserved bands above an egg-and-dot band and another reserved band; row of white dots at top of figural scene. Below, band comprised of stopt maeanders (3) alternating with cross-in-square (1), between two reserved bands; broad reserved band at join of body and foot; reserved band on lowest ridge of foot as well as resting surface and underside. A: A draped woman runs in 3/4-view to the right but looks back, profile the left. She holds in her lowered right hand a wreath from which a garland hangs and in her upraised left hand a box (decorated with bands, chevrons, and zigzags, as well as white dots above the box), while drapery falls over her left arm. She wears a stephane and a kekryphylon with dangling ribbons, beaded earrings and double necklace (indicated by white dots), double bracelets on each wrist, a belted, sleeveless chiton, and slippers. In the field are a fillet (upper left), a rosette with five white dotted petals and a yellow centre (upper right), and a shrub with berries (lower centre), as well as a white dotted groundline rising slightly to the right. B: Eros, holding a beaded necklace in his extended right hand, is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a flower. The leaves and buds of the same plant elaborately fill the field beneath and around him. He wears attributes that are similar to those of the woman on A: stephane, kekryphylon, earring, double beaded necklace, double bracelets, and slippers. He also wears a beaded baldric diagonally across his chest and ankle bracelets (3 on each ankle) and a baldric comprised of a row of white dots arranged diagonally across his chest, over his left shoulder. Added white is used for details of Eros' wings as well as the jewelry, box decoration, slippers, vegetation and groundlines, as well as the centre parts of the eggs on the egg-and-dot band. 2003.93.0379.jpg
REDMG:1951.132.1 Metallic black gloss on entire surface (dipped) except for reserved (and ruddled) upper part of foot and underside, including resting surface. In addition to moulded mask, and ribbed shoulder decoration (see above), incised (although glazed) cross under spout. 2004.99.0752.jpg
REDMG:1951.133.1 The surface is treated with a metallic black glaze, applied more casually (streaky) on the lower part of the body; reserved band just above foot and reserved (matte grey) underside except for a black concentric circle. There is a single incised concentric circle in the tondo. The iridescence and matte grey areas suggest that the lower part of the vase was (inadvertently?) exposed to (too much) heat, either in the factory or afterwards.
REDMG:1951.134.1 Black interior and handle; beneath each handle a palmette, flanked by tendrils; on each side a wave band, to right, above a woman's head, profile to left, surrounded by tendrils. Banded decoration below is comprised of a reserved band just below the figural scene, a pair of red bands above the foot, a red band on the upper surface of the foot, and reserved area at the centre of the underside. The common use of red stain to effect a red (ruddled) surface on reserved areas is highlighted in this example by the almost complete loss of black glaze towards the foot, where the ruddled intervening bands strongly contrast with the buff/reserved (formerly black glazed) areas. 2004.99.0768.jpg
REDMG:1951.140.1 Upper surface of rim reserved, black ridge, and outer edge of lip decorated with a wave pattern to right; black below lip, on neck and on handles except forward handle attachments (on horizontal handles) decorated with rays; reserved patches beneath horizontal handles. Lower part of neck decorated at front with a short laurel wreath, to left, between two narrow reserved bands. Beneath the figural scene is a groundline comprised of a frieze of alternating maeanders (three) and saltire squares (one). Narrow reserved line at join with base, bottom edge of base, and underside. The figural scene is framed between a tendril, above the left handle, and a larger vegetal ornament, from which emerges a lotus bud. A Youth stands in 3/4-view to the right. He is nude, except for drapery slung over his bent right arm and held in his lowered left hand, and a white taenia on his head. He also holds a staff in his slightly upraised right hand. At centre is a bird (crane), seated in a perirhanterion (basin), supported by a fluted, tapered column, with a dotted capital, on a two-stepped base. The steps are decorated with small black spots and thin diagonal lines that suggest a marbled appearance. On the other side of the perirhanterion stands a woman, in 3/4-view to the left, with her weight on her right leg and her left leg relaxed. She wears a belted, sleeveless chiton, double bracelets on each wrist, a beaded necklace, and a spiked stephane, as well as a short pony tail. She extends her right hand to the bird and holds a box, decorated on the sides with black spots and lines, and three white spots on top, in her slightly upraised right hand. Above the bird is a rectangular frame (sometimes called a window but perhaps a votive plaque); above the box is a cogwheel. Most of the reserved areas are darkened with red wash, and the jewelry and other details in added white. 2004.99.0810.jpg

Black on exterior, except for a frieze of tongues underneath the rim on both sides, but not above handles; figural scenes on body. A: Partridge profile to the left; tendrils in lower left field; circle and tendrils in upper right field. B: Satyr head, profile to left; tendrils in lower left and right fields; quarter palmette in upper left field; single palm leaf in upper right field. Although female heads are more popular in such contexts, the large red element in place of the ear is probably a horn and indicates that this is a representation of a satyr. The decoration in the lower left field of the B side indicates the addition of a second layer of black glaze, in a manner than changes the image (from a large tendril to a small tendril below an L-shaped element.

The hero’s clothes hang on the left tree and his quiver hangs above him. While this scene might depict either Herakles with the Cretan bull or Theseus with the (same) bull of Marathon, the incisions on the head covering (slightly stippled) suggest that this is a schematic rendering of Herakles’ lion-scalp helmet. Added white is used for the rendering of details such as fruit on trees, as well as the forepart of the bull, and his tail, while incision is used to indicate the drapery, quiver, and musculature of the hero, as well as his head covering.

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

The body (slightly lopsided) curves toward a carination where there is a slightly wavy horizontal band. Two handles, one either side and roughly with a line of black gloss. The rim flares slightly and is decorated with a line above a simple zig zag (which is of poor quality). The interior is almost plain with a ring painted at the base.
TEMP.2002.9.2 Larger piece (1) is made of three fragments and shows the top of the front panel with a pattern of horizontal palmettes with dots in field above a scene of a woman, with head covered, facing a youth wearing a long tunic and holding a long stick (?). The vertical panel pattern on the left hand side is of two dots, staggered and joined by a line. Detail picked out in watery glaze and black. The inside surface of both pieces is almost ribbed and the glaze is streaky. The smaller piece (2) has remains of a thick handle with a palmette pattern below it. The design on the front has the same horizontal and vertical panels as the other piece but has an old (bearded) man facing left also in long tunic. Both pieces bend upwards to what would have been the mouth and there is a possibility this would have been trefoil shaped.
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.
