Below: there are two, concentric bands and three more that are not very obvious(?). The handles are ornamented with large dots. The foot is black, but the colour looks uneven. Interior of neck: Two concentric circles. 2003.36.0007.jpg
38.4.2 Reddish-brown on pale buff ground. The false neck is decorated predominantly in a black band, with a narrow and broad black circular band in the centre of the false neck. The underside appears to be reserved, with a single thick black line at the base on the false neck. The true neck has a faded broad back band around and overlapping the lp. There is a broad black band at the base of the neck, and also a black blob on the side facing the false neck. On the shoulder there are six groups of narrow black lines painted horizontally. There is one group of either side of the true neck, both have eight horizontal lines, the one on the left has two rings of black to either side of it. The groups of lines on the other side, if faced with the true neck at the top, have groups of 6, 7, 9. 8 horizontal lines, all with a small ring of black in between them. The shoulder is outlined with a broad ring of black. The body has four broad black lines, which have faded to a reddish brown. Adjacent are narrow red rings; four above the first band, two within the first band, two within the second band, two or three below the second band. The fourth band does not overlap the base, which is slightly concave in shape, and has the suggestion of a foot ring.
39.9.1 Short narrow neck of jug is glazed black. Handle begins at top of neck and carries on to top of the body. The part of the jug joining the neck and the body, has a palmette design on it, in a circle. This circle is broken for the black part of the handle. There is a large palmatee decoration underneath the handle, where it ends on the body of the jug. Body of jug has red-figures on it. Starting from right-hand side of the handle, going from left to right: First figure looks like a women in traditional Greek clothing, kneeling down. She is facing right. The figure to the right of her looks like a naked man with wings. He is standing on one leg and facing right. He is reaching one of his arms out. Underneath that arm there appears to be a duck. To the right-hand side of the duck, there is a man sitting on a stool. He is in traditional Greek cloting and is holding a large box. This figure is also facing right.Underneath the box there seems to be another object, but it is unclear. Perhaps it is a head? Or perhaps it is where the black glaze has been rubbed away, to reveal a patch which looks like decoration on the jug. He has a winged man kneeling in front of him. This man is facing left, towards the sitting figure. The next figure looks like a women in traditional Greek clothing, kneeling down. She appears to be holding something in her hand, perhaps a mirror. She is facing right. Inbetween her and the next figure there is a bird, facing right. The next figure looks like another women in traditional Greek clothing. She is standing on one leg, with her right arm reaching out. She is facing left. Behind her is a 'T' shaped object, perhaps a stool?. Rim of the base is a red/terracotta colour. underside of base is slightly concaved, with many black rings inside. There is a black dot in the centre of the bottom of the base.
39.9.7 Underneath, between palmettes; A: Two satyrs around an amphora (oxypythmenos), the left satyr leaning towards and pushing the amphora, while the right satyr, also leaning towards the amphora, rests his hands on his left thigh; B: Two satyrs advancing to the right, the one in the rear holding either a branch with a heart-shaped ending, or a rhyton. The right satyr's stance makes him appear to be running. The rest of the vessel's body is black. The interior is also black with a reserved disk, 8.5 in diameter, containing a central dot and two concentric circles, the one close to the dot and broader than the other, which is closer to the edge of the reserved disk. Underneath, part of the base's hollow, conical surface of the stem is painted with a broad circular band. 2004.14.0009.jpg
45.10.10 The interior of the vessel is black apart from the lowest part of o, whose lower part bears a reserved but glazed line. Exterior: a) On the right side, there is the upper part of a seated woman (part below her waist is missing). She is draped and wears a stephane (fillet) on her head. On the left side there is a floral motif whose stem is a wavy line that expands to the left. b) There is the back side of another seated draped female figure. c) The front side of the previous female figure. She is holding an alabastron with both her hands. d) On the lower left part there is the largest part of a voluted palmette with petal shaped divisions, connected with a tendril. The area next to the spring of the one part of the handle is reserved. e) On the bottom right there is the rest of the previous palmette, also connected with a tendril. f) On the bottom right there is the upper part of a palmette and on the upper left there is part of a tendril's volute. The area on the left of teh one spring of the handle is reserved, but glazed (plaster on top). g) Uneven black surface. h) A small part of the volute of the tendril of f and the stalk of a flower. i) Part of an inverted palmette, connceted with (part of ) a tendril, with (occasional) leaves on its sides. j) Small line, part of a tendril. k) Part of a tendril's volute. l) A figure's projected forearm and hand (figure's depicted on n?). m) On the right side, there is the stalk and part of the stem of a flower and a line that seems to be part of a tendril. There is also the spring of a handle. n) Part (head missing, neck and shoulder are scraped off, area below the knees missing) of a draped standing figure that has the left hand around the waist. o) The lowest part of a figure's drapery. p) Base.

Outer and inner side of footring black, resting surface and underside reserved except for central black dot surrounded by three concentric bands. Moulded circle c.1.0 wide houses thickest, central black band. 2007.01.0107.jpg
45.10.11 Offset rim is black inside and out and the handle that originally existed just below rim appears also to have been black. Exterior walls are black as is interior except for the main design which is reserved. This picture is of a youth reclining, seen from behind. Detail is picked out in black paint and the figure is painted inside a circle. On the underside, there was originally a stem which was also black. 2003.99.0021.jpg
45.10.13 (i) There is a small part of a motif (partially covered with plaster) that consists of wavy lines. Below it, there are two lines and underneath there are parts of two inverted, palmettes (voluted with petal-shaped divisions) that flank a three-pointed flower with two dots to represent pollen. ii) Between two pairs of lines there is a guilloche (fillets with teardropped terminations interwoven together) with dots among the lines. Below, there is a broad black band, which seems to be interrupted at the right side. (iii) At the left, three parts of vertical, black bands and incisions create part of an object (garment hanging from chair or couch?) In the middle, there is an object- as if it was a grave-stele with a cross-shaped ? ending above which spring two heraldic, white, voluted palmettes (now fadded away), a chiastic motif with dots and horizontal lines on top- but inverted (leg of a bed or couch?). Next to that, there are a figure's part of thighs, knees and calves, close to part of a palmette. (iv) A bearded satyr (seilinos) plays a chorded instrument (lyre), while his himation is hanging in the background. 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
45.10.23 The handle is black. On the shoulder there is a voluted palmette with petal-shaped divisions between two draped male figures facing each other, holding their himatia with their left hands. There is part of a thin line that contours the lower part of the shoulder. The upper part of a warrior is preserved, wearing a red helmet and carrying a shield. There is also the lowest part of a figure's drapery and his feet. He seems to step on two red lines, and the rest of the fragment is black. A fragment shows part of a figure's feet, which also step on two red lines. There is a broad, black band on the foot, with the rest of the underside is reserved.
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
45.6.37 Streaky black glaze applied through dipping, so that a reserved band remains in the middle of the body. Reserved also on resting surface, interior face of foot, and underside. Streaky appearance and reserved section of belly suggest the presence of kiln supports during firing, as found on the example in Toronto (see discussion of dating, below). Black on the interior of the mouth. 2010.98.0159.jpg
45.8.1 The rim (interior) bears two, concentric circles, the first at the edge and the second at the curve between the neck and the body, where traces of white colour can be found. 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
47.10.3A-B Lid: glazed black, except for the underside. At the middle of the lid are two purlish-red narrow bands; a third narrow band surrounds the rim of the lid.

47.2.8 Black gloss except reserved bands at junction of foot and body, on resting surface, and on underside. Black concentric band on interior of foot ring; centre of underside decorated with two black circles and a central black dot within a black band. Interior decoration: at centre, 8 stamped palmettes, linked at their bases; outer band of 20 stamped palmettes, also linked at their bases; each palmette band inscribed by a band of eggs. 2001.99.0128.jpg
47.6.1 The Gorgon Medusa, in both shoulder panels. Area under handles is black. Side A: Achilles on black horse, alongside a red horse with an attendant riding on black horse behind. Troilos lies on ground. Side B: Achilles carrying Troilos toward alter made of bricks with incised lines (the altar might also be interpreted as a fountainhouse). Shrub in front of altar (fountainhouse) Pictures are in red, black, white with detail incised. Below shoulder zone are red and black chevron-palmettes; below this, animal frieze with goats, panther, winged creature and lion. Triangles radiating from base, foot is black and base reserved. Zones separated by bands. 2007.01.0060.jpg
47.6.2A-B Lid: Straight sides and a moulded rim at the top and bottom, both red. The plastic ring at the top of the lid black. The top is decorated with a depiction of a male figure, perhaps Dionysus (Ure) or Pan (Boardman) with horns springing from his head. He wears an animal skin (brownish dots) over his shoulders, with a hoof dangling. He seems to be stepping or sitting on another animal skin. In raised left hand he holds an indeterminate instrument (Ure: handleless fork; Boardman: syrinx) and he rests his right hand, brought before his body, on an oar-shaped object (trumpet; Ure: winnowing fan; Boardman: 'lagobolon'). To his left is the forepart of a pig (or dog?), and to his right, a basket with three corn stalks. There is also a red, thin line at the joining point of the plastic ring and the lid. The decoration of the side surface of the lid is a motif of vertical, hanging, wavy tongues, between reddish brown bands. There is also one inverted heart-shaped motif at some point between the tongues. Body: There is a red line at the rim and another one at half the way up the body, both on the inside and the outside. On the interior there are two, concentric, reddish-brown circles. Exterior: There is also a red line at the bottom of the body, while the disk-shaped ring is reddish-brown. Wide rim at base. Underside is reserved and central section flat. 2005.88.0043.jpg
48.12.3 Interior black glaze, except a reserved band just inside rim. Upper body reserved with darker red and black decoration; Three horizontal brown lines around the outside rim, six sets of five vertical lines spaced evenly around the upper body alternating with four occurrences of three concentric circles surrounding a central dot. Three horizontal lines below it separate this section from the lower body which is black except for one reserved band in the middle. Handles are a darker reddish brown (2.5YR 4/6). There is an incised cross on the inside of one handle only. The slightly flared foot is also black with a reserved resting surface and underside. 2002.97.0519.jpg

Triangular spokes point upwards from the base to the lower black band. Foot is black, but base is reserved. 2010.98.0078.jpg
49.4.1 The mouth is black inside and out with a reserved rim. The back of the handle is also black. The neck and underside of the handle are ruddled, as is the shoulder which has black dots and radial-shaped motif. There is a white band at the upper body surface with a yellow meander pattern, between yellow lines. The main design is that of a flying Nike facing right with a mirror in her left hand and a globular object in her right. She wears a kalyptra (head dress) and she is draped. Additionally, thinned glaze and black paint has been used for detail. Below the scene there is a similar meander pattern on a white band. The rest of the vessel is black. 2005.88.0081.jpg
49.4.2 Woman with a fan and a ball, seated in a naiskos; kalathos on either side. The inner side of the rim bears a broad band (in the middle of the surface). The top surface bears traces of carelessly applied red colour. The edge is also black and its side surface bears a reserved line and a black line underneath, from which seem to be hanging short, vertical lines. The upper part of the neck is reserved, but bears a black band on its lower part. The rest of the neck is decorated with black colour, on top of which there is a tongue pattern in yellow (faded away) that contours the vessel (long, pointed on the bottom tongues). Below, there is a reserved line. Side A: The main scene depicts a female figure seated in a naiskos (monument with pediment, from whose upper part emerge palmettes and tendrils, epistylion, an ionic column on either side an top of a stylobates or crepis, the latter represented with a perpetual pattern of voluted motives and dots in between, framed by white lines, thin, black bands and white bands), on a diphros okladias. The woman is facing left, she is wearing a peplos, holding a fan with her right hand and a round object with the left one, below which there is a row of dots. She also wears a kalyptra and has her hair in a bun, from which emerge two wavy lines with round terminations. Behind her, at the level of her head, there is a window (square object with the middle part riddled). The naiskos is flanked by a kalathos on either side, decorated with black and yellow horizontal lines, tendrils and branches, as well as yellow tongues and yellow meander pattern. There is a row of yellow dots below each kalathos and a rosette on top. Below the row of dots underneath the left kalathos there is another rosette, whereas underneath the row of dots below the right kalathos there is a phiale. The details are executed with added yellow. The handles are black. The reverse is decorated with floral motifs: the area underneath the vertical handle is black, with an H-shaped black motif divided in two by a vertical line, on a round, brown background. The surface below the vertical handle depicts two fan-shaped palmettes, from which emerge elaborate, voluted floral patterns that expand to the surface below the horizontal handles. The lower part of the body is contoured by a wavy-like pattern on a brown background. The area below is black, although streaky on some areas, while the lowest part of the body is reserved but glazed. The foot is black, with a reserved resting surface. 2001.99.0150.jpg
50.10.4 The mouth is black inside and out with a reserved rim. The neck and underside of handle are also reserved, while the top of the handle is black. The shoulder is decorated with short lines and four palmettes (of which one is upside down) linked with tendrils. The back of the body is black and the front bears the representation of a draped woman in an unnaturalistic posture. She is facing right with her head and chest turned back to her left. She is holding a case (kiste? with drawers?) in her right hand and extends out her left (the gesture is as if holding a phiale). There is reserved line under her feet and the woman looks as if she stepps on it. Additionally, the foot's upper surface is black. There is also a small, concave section at the centre of the base. 2013.99.0031.jpg
51.1.2 Interior and exterior of the mouth, neck exterior of handles black, fired mostly reddish brown. The underside of the rim has a reserved band. Underside of the handles reserved. The body is all black apart from the metope carryint the figure decoration and a reserved band decorated with radial-shaped motif beofre the black foot, decorated with two red concentric bands. Resting surface, underside of the foot. The top surface of the rim is decorated with two, concentric, red lines. Another marks the junction of the neck with the shoulder. The neck is black (reddish brown on the reverse side). The main scene begins from the top of the shoulder (under a red line), down the main part of the body. There are two confronted bulls with their heads bent downwards. Added red on partsof their bodies. Between them, there is an ivy leaf (heart-shaped). They step on a thin, black line, which separates the shoulder zone from the body metope. On the body, two warriors attack other two. All warriors have spears with teardroped terminations (three terminations are visible, the fourth is on a missing area) and wear helmets with coverings for the cheeks (only the right pair's are visible) with details (dots for the first and fillet for the second warrior) in added white (now fadded away). They all held shields as well. All are round, except for one. The right pair's episemata on the shields are visible (upper part of seated lion / tripod, rendered with added white that has fadded away), while the other pair's shields' interior is visible and so the porpax (handle) can be seen on the left warrior. Additionally, they all wear greaves. Added red on the contour of the shields, the interior of the shileds, helmest, one hoplite's greaves. Between the pairs there is an eight-pointed star. There are also two horizontal red lines below running around the body of the vase. Two horizontal red lines frame the reserved lower zone decorated with the linear motif. The foot is black, with two red horizontal lines. The base is reserved. 2010.98.0180.jpg
51.4.1 The top surface of the rim is reserved (but glazed), however, the side one bears a black meander pattern. Neck: at the left side there is the front part of a horse (head and two feet) and the right leg (thigh to toe) of the horse-rider, with incisions for detail (denoting also the bridle) and added white. At the other end there are two men, one behind the other. The fragment's termination is at the level of their knees. The first one (right end) has extended his arms, as if being a charioteer. Besides, the back part of the chariot can be seen over his white chiton. The stephane on his hair is executed with red. The black, male figure at the same level behind him makes a gesture as if holding something (invisible). He is wearing a short chiton and he is probably on the chariot too. Interior: There is a red, thin band at the rim and the rest of the surface is black. 2005.90.0010.jpg
51.4.10 Offset rim and interior is glazed black but streaky allowing red to show through. The two handles are also black on the top and reserved underneath.

51.4.2 The top surface of the rim is reserved (but glossed), however the side bears a black meander pattern. The scene consists of two chariots, the left one with three horses (below their knees the piece is missing) and the right one with four (only two of the heads remain). The left hand side charioteer is not visible, however it is obvious that he was holding and stretching the bridle. The upper part of the chariot is also visible. The second charioteer wears white chiton and red stephane (fillet) on the head and his chariot is visible. Each figure has incisions around its edges, as well as for the depiction of details. Some parts of the horse bodies are emphasized by added red colour. Body: The surface is black. The interior of the neck and body is also black, apart from a red band at the top of the rim. 2007.01.0153.jpg
51.4.3 Rim: There is a meander pattern at the side. Neck: There is the procession of two chariots. On the left chariot 3 horses are visible, however they must have been four (four pairs of legs). In front of them there is a charioteer wearing a chiton (the added white has faded away) and the largest part of the chariot as well as some of the horse's feet and tails are visible. The details have been rendered with added red and incisions (especially for the tails and mane of the horses). There is also a black line below the figures, in order to denote the ground. The body of the vessel is black, as is the interior, apart from the top surface of the rim that is reserved (but glossed) and a red, thin band on the upper neck. 2007.99.0094.jpg
51.4.9 The rim is black, both on the inside and on the outside. The back of the handle is also black, but the underside is reserved. The neck is reserved, but glazed apart from a thick purple band on its lower part. On the sloping junction of the neck with the shoulder, black tongues.

In the middle of two upper and two lower black lines there are two rows of black dots that begin on the edge of the second left figure of the main scene and stop at the edge of the last person. In the centre of the scene, a male figure in profile to the right with as short mantle, a quiver on his back (Herakles) is attacking a kneeling Amazon. With his left hand, he is gradding her from the air and with the right he is holding a sword, with which he is ready to kill her. The Amazon, in profile to the left, is wearing a helmet, holding a very long spear with her arm and her shiled with the left. From his waist, her sword is hanging. This scene is flanked by two other battle scenes. On the left side, an Amazon is attacking a Greek. He is wearing a cuirass, helmet, he is hloding his spear and his shield and he is shown ready to fall down. Tha Amazon has atteacked him with her spear. She is wearing a helmet and a short chiton. On the right, an Amazon and a Greek are shown in profile running towards the left, projecting their spears. The Amazon is wearing a ahsort chiton and a helmet. She is holding her shield, covering large part of her body. A frontal head of a lion decorates the shield. A sword hanging from her waist. The male warrior wears a short chiton and has a shield and a helmet. The Amazons have long hair and wear helmets with longer and bigger crests. Incisions and added red are used for details. Added red: parts of the chitons of the warriors anad the Amazons, hair of the warrior in the middle, fillets on Amazon's heads and the frame of the shield of the running Amazon.

The resting surface is reserved. 2013.99.0165.jpg
51.7.13 The mouth is black at the top of the interior and the lip is reserved; the handles are black as is the body where they are attached, and the foot, except for the underside. The neck is decorated with a six-leaf palmette on each side. On the shoulder, beneath two reserved bands, are tongues that suggest the effect of ribbing. A white fillet has been painted over the 'ribbing' on both sides. Two thick, black lines (carelessly rendered) encircle the shoulder. A large palmette fills the space beneath each handle. A female head, shown in profile to the left, is shown on each side. Each women wear a kekryphylon or kalyptra and has her hair tied in a knot. Strands of added white (ribbons?) emerge from the hair. There are also thin lines (carelessly rendered) beneath the main scenes. Beneath the main scenes the vessel is black, except for the reserved stem and underside. The stem and the resting surface have been treated with a darker red wash. Red sections are streaky and dull, and some of the 'black' became red through misfiring. 2003.95.0062.jpg

In between the bands there seems to be a pale white wash (?). The external face of the handle is also painted red with a small tail-like extension of paint. 2008.98.0329.jpg
56.8.7 Interior glazed. On top, curved surface, are tongues which alternate black and white, the black ones also framed by black lines. The underside of the rim is black fired reddish brown. Thick stem and wide, with a plastic ring to the joint with the base. Flat base, curving upwards. Resting surface and concave base both reserved. 2008.98.0308.jpg
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

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

71.12.2 Circular with flared edges which are fanned. There are concentric circles around the central carved dot of the vessel: A small, incised one, two larger, that seem to be in low relief and one that contours the others, incised. There is also a carved line that separates the rim from the body (exterior), which becomes double at some point. In the centre one small hole, on the surface of the bronze two incised grooves and four smaller holes positioned symetrically around the bigger hole in the centre. Inscised petal decoration around the centre hole. Four fine grooves around the centre decoration and then twelve further holes around the edge the same size as the four smaller holes. Edges fanned with large grooves. 2002.97.0571.jpg
71.6.3 Inside is streaky black showing red through. Handles and outside are also black. Side A: A woman standing with her back to a chair, holding out a fillet in her right hand.

Two ruddled bands run around base of pot below figures. Foot is black on top and side and inside foot ring; resting surface and underside reserved. Base is ruddled and has three black bands and a central black dot. 2008.99.0717.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
79.1.18 Around outer edge of discus is a band of raised dots within two rings. The inner area of the discus is decorated with eight individual circles with concentric circles within each.

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
83.9.30 One side of fragment has two patches of black, which continue off the piece. This side has a reserved patch in between the black and two small back dots. The other side is black and appears to have two small flowers on it. Also there is a third half of a flower, which continues off piece. 2006.20.0136.jpg
83.9.34 One side of this fragment is all glazed black and has three flowers on it. It also has two rounded lines, with up-side-down 'U' shapes inside them. The other side of this fragment also has a black glaze and seems to have a rim coming out of it, which could have been part of a base of a pot. 2006.20.0054.jpg
87.2.1 Horse decorated with white slip on pale orange, with dark red (for black?) stripes on chest, legs, mane, tail, and harness. Head and mouth of the horse shows representation of bridle, with thin horizontal bands down the neck representing the mane. There are two horizontal bands around the main torso of the horse. Horizontal bands also decorate the legs, chest and tail of the horse figurine. Front legs are slightly projected forward, as are the rear legs backwards. The legs are straight and disproportionately long compared to the head and torso. 2005.05.0061.jpg
E.23.17 Face comprises top third of piece, angular. Detail on face uses black pigment (beard. eyebrows and what may be hair). Face and clothing in light coloured pigment, green is used around the eyes, the upper body decoration consists of a large red band, a smaller black band of dashes, a blank band, a light blue band, another black dash band, a thick black band, another dash band, another thick red band, another dash band, another blank band, another thin dash band, and finally a thick band made of black tear shaped vertical stripes. There is also some black pigment on what appears to have represented the shoulders. 2007.99.0037.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.23.32 Jar perhaps coloured with a white wash. There is a purplish-brown band in the shape of a 2 x 2 grid around the shoulder and also in two bands around the neck. There are marks in this pigment elsewhere on the body, particularly around one of the handles. There are also concentric incisions, perhaps wheel marks. 2002.98.0198.jpg
E.62.16 A cubic dice, white in colour with numerical symbols etched on and then painted in black. On all bar one side the symbols are made up of one dot surrounded by two concentric circles, the number of these represents the value of that side. On two sides there are five, on two there are four and six on the fifth. The final side has twelve dots although on this side one symbol consists of one dot and one circle rather than two, also the dots are depicted in groups of twos. 2002.98.0256.jpg
E.62.4 A small limestone tablet with the image of a monkey holding its young. It is square in shape although this appears to because the adult monkey's head has been removed. There is a hole in the centre at the top of the artefact presumably so it could be hung up. The adult monkey is bending it's knees to reduce its height which also gives the idea of closeness between the two creatures. The underside of the artefact has the same image only in reverse and with less detail. There is red pigment remaining on both sides around the feet particularly. 2002.98.0241.jpg
E.63.13B Fragment preserves part of the lip and also the base of what was a shallow bowl. There is is a darker blue curved line following the angle of the bowl suggesting that there was a decoration at the bottom of the bowl. The piece comes from a spoilt lot from the lower levels of the city, which is suggested by the extra thick layer of glaze that is present on the lip. 2002.98.0959.jpg
REDMG:1926.99.52 Daisy pattern on upper surface of rim; vertical bars on lip; crouching sphinx, profile to the left, on the body, with her feet curled down to the base, which is decorated with a 8 'pointed' star, surrounded by four 8-quadrant rosettes (five similar rosettes also in the field).

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

B: Two robed youths, standing profile, with their right legs advanced, face eachother across a narrow stele. Above them is a circle with a black line vertically through the centre and an 'H' drawn on top (probably halteres). 2003.95.0072.jpg
REDMG:1951.161.1 Black interior, except for two reserved bands, at the top and bottom of the everted lip. Under the rim is a laurel wreath, to left, between two reserved bands. Beneath the figural scenes and surrounding the lower part of the vase, is a decorative band, comprised of stopt maeanders (3) alternating with saltire squares (1), between two reserved bands. The handle zones are reserved, and ray bands decorate each handle attachment; beneath each handle is a palmette, between two tendrils. Reserved bands decorate the base, on the groove at the top, and on the bottom; the underside is reserved. A: A woman and a youth advance in 3/4-view to the right. She wears a stephane, a kekryphylon with ribbons, a beaded earring and beaded necklace, double braceless, a sleeveless, belted chiton, and slippers. She holds a tympanon (drum) in her upraised right hand and a kantharos, in her upraised left hand, which she lifts from a tray held by the youth, in his right hand. There are three white dots on top of the tray. He is nude except for a yellowed fillet, a thick white necklace, and a robe draped over his right hand. He turns his head profile to the left, to face the woman, and also holds a fillet in his outstretched left hand. There is a grape cluster in the upper right field. Added colour (white with yellow) is used for the jewelry and slippers. B: Two robed youths in conversation, stand profile towards each other, each with his weight on his left leg. Both are enveloped in their himatia except for their right hands; the left-most figure holds a staff in his advanced right hand, while the other figure gestures to him, with his upturned right hand. There is a bull’s eye in the field between them. 2005.90.0006.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.32 Interior and handles black, as are the lower part of the body, stem, and upper surface of foot. Reserved band around rim, interrupted on either side by handles. Reserved vertical band in each handle zone; on each side a female head, profile to the left, between two white vertical bands, each crowned by a circle near the top of the band; red diagonal surface of foot; reserved underside including resting surface. Each female wears a stephane and a sakkos from which emerges a bundle of hair, also tied with a white ribbon; earring comprised of triangular element (missing from side B) beneath hoop; beaded necklace The figure on side B has a fleur-de-lys in the lower left field. The surface is ruddled on both heads and the exterior of the foot; added yellow, in places ‘gilded’ with yellow, for details of hair ornament, jewelry, and fleur-de-lys. 2005.89.0006.jpg
REDMG:1953.41.1 Decorated entirely in black glaze except for the decorated tondo, the reserved resting surface (and perhaps also reserved handle zones which are, however, unclear because it is obscured by deposits). The centre of the bowl is decorated with a reserved circle in which is seated an abstracted human figure, perhaps a Scythian (wearing a mitra), holding a drinking horn. 2005.99.0133.jpg
REDMG:1964.1615.1 Moulded decoration around the shoulder from outside in; a depressed ring, three bands of raised dots, (all three disturbed by the handle, one disturbed by the nozzle) a raised moulding of sets of three lines radiating in a band, a moulded ring surrounding the discus. Handle has two lines on its crest extending to the base. The base has lines delineating the base, but also has two small circular indentations along the handle nozzle axis. Dark red wash all over. 2005.01.0139.jpg
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:1964.1637.1 Small piece of side of pot including rim and part of handle. It seems handle would have been long and thin according to where the other part has been detached. Interior surface is black. One side of handle is black, whilst the other side is reserved. The exterior surface of the body is reserved also. The rim curves around reasonably sharply and the size and thickness of the handle suggests quite a small cup. 2006.20.0521.jpg
REDMG:2004.98.1 Black on interior and exterior of mouth; reserved upper lip; restored neck; handle black on exterior; shoulder: band of vertical bars above black rays pointing toward the carination. Body: double lotus-palmette frieze, bilaterally arranged, on either side of a 'chain' (row of dotted circles inscribing incised circles. Incisions also used for palmettes; attenuated white lines (side leaves of lotuses) arc over the palmettes. Below the main zone is a thin black band, a thick black band, and a black zone that extends to the top of the foot. The foot is also decorated with a black line at the lowest part of the vertical edge of the foot, and is reserved on the underside and resting surface. 2004.99.0924.jpg
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.2003.2.3 Long light-brown/buff object, from part of a figurine. Slightly thinner at the middle than at the outside and also slightly bent inwards. Small hole at one end.

Below that, the vessel bears the depiction of a symposium scene. On the left, there is the upper part of two draped male figures facing each other. Between them there is a carelessly rendered figure (background); a servant? and a branch with dots on either side. Another, identical branch can be found behind the person on the right. Next to that, there is the upper part of another figure (servant?) from whose arm another branch is hanging. He is facing right, towards a palmette (voluted with petal-shaped divisions), from which the beginning of a tendril seems to spring. There is also part of the bad that covered the back of the handle. b) The lower part of the male figures that face each other. They are draped and seated on similar chairs (diphros okladias). Below them there is a thick line and underneath, the beginning of a band. c) The lower part of another seated (on a similar chair), draped figure, with part of the thick line and the band below. d) The back of the handle is covered with black colour (carelessly rendered at some areas and streaky).

TEMP.2003.6.8 The interior is black, apart from a reserved line on the upper part of the rim. a) The rim bears a black band. Below, there is a palmette on the left of the fragment (an almost round centre from which emerge petal-shaped divisions), as well as part of a carelessly rendered curving line. On the left there is the right part of a figure next to three barnches with dots on either side. There are also four large dots on the background. b)The rim bears a black band. The rest of the surface appears to be reserved. c)The rim bears a black band.

There are also four large dots on the background. d) The rim bears a black band. There is part of the object on the left side of c and on its left there is part of a black dot. e) On the left side there is part of a curving line with a voluted ending (tendril?), which is connected to a palmette (voluted, with round center and petal-shaped divisions). Next to that there is an object that consists of three parts. The upper is round and the details are rendered with incisions and added red, the middle part is a small dotted branch and the lowest part is a short, vertical, thin band (thyrsos?). From its middle part emerges another dotted branch. There are five large dots on the background. On the right side of the fragment there is the left part (small part) of a figure? (carelessly rendered). f) The part of the lowest body that is preserved bears the terminations of palmettes? depicted on the body (short, clumsily rendered bands are preserved). There is also a reserved thin line between two broad brown bands. The foot is also brown and so is the inner sude surface of the foot. The rest is reserved, with the exception of five thin, concentric circles on the base. g) The fragment bears the lowest part of a palmette (the left volute and part of the round center)on the left and part of the reserved area between the two brown bands.
TEMP.2003.7.1 The edge of the rim is painted with a small line of brown, which is fairly worn. Interior has a brown coat over white paint. The brown starts 0.2 below the rim. There is also a small red splotch near the edge of this side. Exterior is white.
TEMP.2003.7.4 Five sided fragment. Exterior white with a pattern of parallel brown curves that get increasingly shorter, creating a pie slice shape. Interior black with a red line alone one edge. Right above the red line is a white line. There are also a few other splotches of white.
TEMP.2003.7.68 Fragment of a rim of a Kylix. The concave side is black with a reserved stripe at the lip. The convex side is mostly reserved with the exception of a black stripe at the tip of the lip, the bottom of the lip, and the end of the fragment. There is also a small black non-representational design on the convex side of the rim. 2006.20.0487.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.
