2007.4.157 Painted light red on one side, with a dark red stripe near the lip. On the other side again a dark red stripe near the lip, and some sort of pattern involving red lines on lighter, orangey lines, but difficult to see owing to damage
26.2.26 On underside are four thin black bands. On topside, half the rim is painted black with a red and black band joined below. Seven tongues are seen below the rim, every third one red.

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). The interior of both pieces is black. The feet have a black band on the side (ca 2 cm below their joining part to the body) and the rest of the surface is left reserved, apart from a black line at the rim. Half way up the inside surface of the feet there is a thin, black band. The base's central part is decorated with a broad black, circular band between thin black lines. 2003.94.0098.jpg
50.3.3 Above foot, and again half-way up to handles, groups of five fine incised lines. 2005.88.0042.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. 2002.97.0189.jpg
E.23.59 String of beads made up of three lines of green cylinders and buff disks, these meet up with a short line of brown beads and then split up into three seperate strings again. There are 14 groups of three lines. 2008.08.0083.jpg
E.62.9 Incised line horizontal across both sides at back and again both sides at start of teeth.
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:1935.87.22 Tongues emerging from mouth between two bands. Dots around the rim and tongues again on shoulder. Zigzag with two dots on handles. Main design is five warrior figures facing left, carrying large shields. Each shield is bisected with incised vertical parallel lines and coloured one half red and the other half yellow. The outer ring of the shield is brown, and the helmets which the warriors appear to be wearing are yellow. The base has two bands around tongues with two bands the other side.
REDMG:1935.87.31B Lid: on the rim of the knob, black silhouetted triangles pointing outwards; below teh knob, black rays; four circles, the second and fourth red; round the edge below the animal zone a black band between two black lines; on the vertical rim a red band, and again a black band between lines. In the animal zone, on one side a palmette-lotus complex, flanked by a pair of sirens; on the other a siren flanked by a panther on the left and a lion on the right. Small incised circles on the body of teh panther, incisions on the lion. Field ornaments include rings of dots with or without a circle at the centre, scattered dots, amorphous and cruciform rosettes with incisions crossing at centre, rosettes with incisions forming small arcs facing away from the center. Some remains of added red on neck, breast, and tail of sphinxes, heart of palmette and petals of lotus. Inside of lid reserved. 2003.97.0277.jpg
REDMG:1964.1643.1 Circular, horizontal handle attached to rim of cup or skyphos. Interior is colored red. Rim is black and handle appears to have been black. Below handle is colored red again. 2003.93.0370.jpg
REDMG:1964.1657.1 Foot reserved. Going up the stem the object becomes first narrower but then starts to widen out again reaching the widest area around the shoulders of the object. The body then becomes narrow again until reaches the rim of the mouth. A black gloss has been applied to the upper three quarters of the body including the rim and mouth. Dipped, lower part of body reserved. Bottom sloping obliquely, so that it can not stand. 2003.97.0927.jpg
REDMG:1964.1664.1 Wide-mouthed cup which narrows in centre and widens again before tapering to foot. Foot flares out and base is flat. Originally had two handles on opposite sides, starting on widest part of body and stretching to rim. Black inside and out. 2004.99.0132.jpg
REDMG:1964.1688.1 Slightly curved from left to right and curved from top to bottom, becoming steeper towards bottom of fragment. This suggests that the fragment may have belonged to a cup of some description which has straight rim and a sloping body (?) Fragment has the rim of the object. The rim is black and flat on the top. On the interior surface is a black band below rim, red, broad band, thin black band and red again. The exterior surface appears to have been black all over but faded to red. The material is thick and dark in colour. 2006.20.0502.jpg
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.
