The neck of the vessel is ornamented with a continuous floral motif (branch bearing two long leafs; laurels?) that covers the whole of the surface. A: Scene of a symposium of four, reclining, male figures; 2 men and 2 youths (in turns), in pairs looking at one another. All of them wear their himatia, loose around their waists, a fact that leaves the upper part of their bodies naked, and are crowned with identical three-pointed diadems, made of added, yellowish and white colour. They also have identical hairstyles. The youth on the left side makes a gesture, pointing left with his right hand, but facing the man on his right who touches his chest with his right hand. The third person looks as if holding a white thread with his right-hand fingers, while the man on his right is trying to put a white, spotted garland on the third figure with his right hand. They all recline on a horizontal sort of bed, supported by three feet, of equal distance between them, but of unequal width. However, the lower parts of the three feet are similar; rectangular and vertical to the stem. Under this construction, in the surface between the two gaps that are left between the feet of the bed, there are two tables, that carry food(?) (fruit and bread ?), painted with added white colour. Both of the tables bear two, broad, black, bands around their edges, the left ones being larger than the right ones. As regards the endings of the tables' feet, they give the impression of a vague rendering of animal paws. B: A youth in the centre of the scene looks at his right, while in either of his sides, another youth is looking at him. All of them are fully-clad with himatia. The left one is holding a strigil (stleggis) with his right hand, while the one at the right side of the scene makes a gesture with his feast. The spring of the handles bears part of a circle (it stops, leaving the surface between the beginning of the two handles undecorated), with small, semi-cercular patterns. Beneath each handle there is a large, complex palmette. A band with maeander-shaped patterns runs through the vessel under the main scenes. The base is in the form of a disk, with a high foot, separated from the disk-shaped surface by a carved, reserved circle, as well as an also circle at the lowest end of the base's foot. 2003.23.0005.jpg

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.

REDMG:1964.1618.1 Black wash all over.
REDMG:1964.1627.1 Only the trefoil mouth rim survives on one secion. The other section has part of the handle remaining. These parts came from a large oinochoe as the handle is wide and thick and the mouth is large also. Apparently was all black originally. Handle was originally higher than the mouth. There is a groove which runs below the mouth, indicating the top of the neck. 2003.93.0238.jpg
REDMG:1964.1650.1B Top half of 1650.64 which is the base. Mouth has flat, reserved rim on top and then flares out and is wide at top with a thin neck with curved handle all painted black. Shoulder and rest is reserved. 2006.20.0045.jpg

REDMG:1964.1678 Black glaze all over, especially lustrous on the interior.
REDMG:1964.1684.1 Three pieces belonging to same object but not adjoinng. All reserved. One piece has a small pinched handle attached. All pieces have a rim, suggesting the original object had a lid. 2006.20.0272.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
REDMG:1964.1711.1 Coarse clay with many inclusions making it rough. Simplistic design. Colours vary but are not painted and object is reserved all over. Sides are uneven. White deposits on outside toward base. 2003.93.0188.jpg
TEMP.2002.9.29 Fragment including section of rim. Rim has a flat top and is hardly offset at all. Interior surface is black. The exterior surface has black bars on the rim then a black band below with a panel of vertical bars next to a panel of three horizontal zigzags with a final band below. Below this but mainly missing at fracture are two narrown bands. 2007.03.1226.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.10 All of the fragments bear part of the same decoration: the interior surface is glossy black as are the side surfaces of the foot (both on the exterior and interior), apart from a reserved (but glazed line) on the resting surface. The base is glazed so that it appears yellowish-brown and is decorated with four concentric circles and a dot at the central part of the base. 2006.20.0670.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.12 The internal surface of all the fragments is black. External: a) The rim is black, however,it appears red on an area. The back of the handle is black (the inner surface is reserved), but the area between the two parts of the handle creates a horizontal, reserved band. Below that, there is part of a black band and part of a reserved area. b) the rim is black. Below, on the left, there is part of a wavy? vertical black band, while on the right there are two small, black spots, parts of a motif. c) There is part of the black band that decorates the rim. d) There is a black band on a reserved area and part of a motif that resembles a ribbon? below which spring thin lines. 2006.20.0466.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.2003.7.30 Small figurine, features not at all defined. Figure is very simple, small rounded shapes for head and arms. Both the back and front are relatively flat and smooth - the front is the side which has the base sticking out further than the back. There are indications that something was painted on it - black line by the right arm, on the front at the bottom, and on the back on the lower half of the body - here there are three vertical lines, the middle line being the longest. There are four black blobs on the square base.
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.
