At the joining point of rim and neck there is a band and at the upper part of the neck a horizontal row of spots. Central handle: Decorated with short, thick, leaning lines. Neck: An olive wreath, the ends of which meet at the front where there is a cluster of olives (?) (dots). Shoulder: There is another horizontal row of dots immediately below neck that seem to be hanging from a line. At the join of shoulder and body, there is a broad band in the middle of two thin, concentric lines. Body: In the front, between the two handles, an olive-tree branch, framed by (left and right) a vertical motif of a row of dots, a line, two rows of larger, ovaloid dots and another line. This motif can also be found at the other side of the handles, used to frame a linear pattern (from a short line appear to be emerging three longer ones. On either side a vertical line, which leans slightly towards the motif in the middle. From the centre of this line emerges a long, wavy line. 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
37.7.3 Long horizontal handles curved and twisted and painted black higher than the rim, which is offset. All black except reserved groove on body just above foot and another in the resting surface. Inside are four stamped palmettes, off centre, in an unusually thin rouletted ring. Base is concave and black. 2003.31.0093.jpg
39.8.1 A. Athlete with strigil and youth, B: 2 athletes, one holding fillet, the other strigil, beneath each handle, palmette with side tendrils. Relief contour for face and neck, white fillets, surface almost disappeared from figures on B, inside 6 stamped palmettes framed in incised circles. Foot-ring black, resting surface reserved, underneath reserved with on ebroad and two fine rings in black; possibly another ring nearer the centre, where the surface has worn. 2003.93.0335.jpg
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.

Below handles are two bands and another around foot. Three bands on base with central dot. 2003.35.0091.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.

45.10.14.2 Interior: The rim is reserved and the neck is black. Exterior: There is a red line on the plastic ring that joins the rim with the neck. Neck: There is a black line, below which, on the left of the fragment, there is the right part of a fan-shaped? palmette (three, short divisions and a rectangular central part, the details rendered with incisions). On the right, there is part of a floral motif: part of a petal (vertical) and part of another one (horizontal). 2006.20.0626.jpg
45.10.20 i) Part of a voluted palmette with petal-shaped divisions seems to be connected to part of a three-pointed floral motif by a thick, black, curving line. On the left there is another, identical three-pointed flower, only bigger and illustrated inverted and vertically and at the left end of the fragment another curving line. Below these, there is part of a perpetual meander pattern and the upper part of continuous, teardropped motives. Some form of greyish (light) brown plaster has been applied to the surface around the voluted palmette. ii) Small part of guilloche (thin fillets with tongue-shaped endings interwoven together) with dots among the lines. Below, there are traces of thin, black lines (but not visible because of burning). Underneath, radial-shaped motif. iii) Underneath two thin lines there is a meander pattern. iv) Part of the upper ending of a radial-shaped motif. v) larger part of a radial- shaped motif. There is part of a thin, horizontal line on the top of one of the divisions and more to the left there is a circle with a dot in the middle and two vertical lines (part of the guilloche). vi) Small part of the guilloche and radial-shaped motif below that.
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?). 2010.98.0172.jpg
45.10.29 Fragments that join 45.10.23: a)The handle's back is black. On the shoulder there is a voluted palmette with petal-shaped divisions between two male draped figures that are facing it, holding their himatia? with their left hands. b) There is part of a thin line that contours the lower part of the shoulder. c) The upper part of a warrior, wearing a red helmet and carrying a shield. Behind him , there is part of an object? in added red. d) The right part bears the left part of the previous warrior's shield. The left part of the fragment depicts the upper part of another draped male figure holding a spear.
45.10.4 Inside and outside of rim is black and there are five dots inside. Main design is two pairs of female heads all wearing head-dresses, facing one another. Detail painted in black. On outer rim are rough dots. Underside of lid is black. 2007.01.0017.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). 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
45.10.9 A: Draped youth playing pipes and draped man holding a branch; B: group, probably in a procession, including a draped youth with a staff and a draped man with a branch. The interior is reserved. The details that form the folds of the figure(s) drapery are rendered with thin, black and red lines. a) Black with part of a tongue motif on the top (tongues flanked by thin lines, on a reserved but glazed band). b) Part of a draped male figure's neck, shoulder and bust. c) Part of the figure's himation folds. d) Lower part of a male figure's drapery folds and part of feet? (carelessly rendered). e) Part of a draped figure's folds, next to a black area. f) Part of a draped figure's folds. g) Part of a figure's arm, forearm and hand, with the largest part of a flute. h) On the right side there is part of a figure's drapery folds. On a black area on the left side there is a figure's hand that holds a komos or sprig with added white, short diagonal lines around it. i) On top of a meander pattern with a black line on top there is part of a red band with traces of thin, black lines (a figure's foot?). j) On the left, there is part of a figure's drapery folds and part of his walking-stick. On the right side there is part of another figure's folds?
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

Row of white dots above the scene. Details of man's body and horses' incised. Disk foot has reserved edge, base is reserved. 2003.92.0149.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.

48.4.1 The rim of the mouth has leaves all round it. The outside of the rim has a thick black band. On the main zone are pairs of ivy leaves (one pointing up the other down), joined by their vines. In between these are pairs of dot flowers. All of this lies between two pairs of horizontal lines. The slight slope towards the foot is black. The top of the foot is reserved but appears to have once been black. The base of the foot is reserved except for a thin black band on the inside of the rim, another about halfway in, and then a small dot in the centre of the base. The inside of the pot is completely black. 2002.97.0347.jpg

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

Both sides depict a female head with ornate head dress, made of whitish thin bands and dots, shorter and thinner yellow ones, as well as of ovaloid or curving mottifs. A lock falls over, accross the neck. A spiral pattern is used to fill the surface between the end of the kalyptra (hair dress) and the beginning of another motif; a palmette, used as decoration on either side, while a floral pattern fills the space between the chin and the other side of the palmette. One of the heads wears a neclace made of yellow beads, while her earing is painted over the hair with big round spots. Between the two heads there are palmettes (fan-shaped ornament composed of narrow divisions) with added yellow for few details. Around the bottom of the rim there is a wave pattern to the left. The underside is completely reserved. 2003.94.0065.jpg

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.

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.2003.6.9 Rim section of a bowl. Exterior white with a band consisting of twin brown lines with alternating black and white rectangles interior along the top .3. There are two small blueish sploches marring the otherwise well preserved surface. Interior is black over white. The white shows through in a line along the edge for about .2 and then there is a brown line, and under this the rest of the background is black. Near the top of this black section is a set of white lines with white dots set in between them at regular intervals. Under this pattern is another thin white line. Under this is on part of a triangle pattern consising of a white outlined triangle with a white line forming a second triangle within the first and a red dot at the center of the triangle.
TEMP.2003.7.5 Curved and painted on both sides. The "outer" concave side is painted light beige with two small brown bands running lengthwise along it. One band has another smaller brown band (about twice as thin) running beside it throughout the fragment. The other band has a smiliar smaller band, but only measuring about a quarter of the length and running off into the edge. The "inner" convex side is painted dark brown with two white bands running lengthwise. One of the white bands is dashed, while the other is complete.
TEMP.2003.7.6 On the exterior is a light brown line, followed by a cream line, and another brown one, followed by a lighter brown one and brown dots on a cream background. Then another light brown line and more cream until a dark brown circular shape (unclear because the fragment ends here). On the other side the background is dark brown, almost black, with white lines, almost like petals, with light brown dots in them.
TEMP.2003.8.5 Person standing to the left, feet and lower legs, wearing a himation standing on a platform to the right, another person (part of a himation). 2006.20.0195.jpg
