14.9.15 Part of base and side of vessel with a white core. The interior surface is pink. Exterior surface is white with horizontal stripes on right half in red, and red line at base of side all on a white slip. What is the base is apparently reserved.
2007.9.2.12 Displays a young woman with her head covered, apparently airborne without wings, and holding a cross in her left hand, whilst a cherub in the lower right corner leans on his trumpet. (Box Index = A happy soul flying to the sky). Tray 5, Layer 1, Gem 12
2008.2.1.43 Three naked and winged figures, two of which are certainly male. Two figures on the left appear to be dancing or struggling. One is positioned behind the other forming a chiastic pattern. The third figure is on the extreme right of the cast, apparently walking away from the scene and carrying what appears to be a lantern.
45.10.3 Upper part of bowl decorated with roller-stamped frieze, with three ridges above and one below. High stem, ridge moulding under top and bottom. Wide flaring foot. Stamp (apparently): figure seated to right in high-backed chair, standing female with win 2003.34.0006.jpg
45.6.4 Brownish-grey in colour, apparently from burnt deposit. Shape is of a normal Corinthian kothon except that the handle is abnormally thick with no side projections. Inside, black bands in center. Turned in rim has black bands as does the top surface with four bands alternating thick and thin. Band near to foot. Base is raised and has two central circles. 2003.35.0088.jpg
57.3.16 Lower part of boy. Two legs and one arm wrapped in cloak. Clay orange. Traces of red on legs. Apparently seated. Mould-made, probably with flat back.
67.7.1 Standing male youth, nude. Grey, apparently from burnt grave; small depression in base. Traces of white slip, colour lost, but probably once red. Standing with arms by sides, elbows pressed back, legs apart, right knee slightly bent. Rectangular base. Paper slip marked 'Thebes' on back. 2002.97.0444.jpg
E.63.13C Blue glaze fragment, once the lip of a flat dish or bowl. The top of the bowl was apparently decorated with two sculpted concentric lines, one following the lip of the bowl one just below. The interior is flat. 2002.98.0954.jpg
E.63.7 Light blue figure of Sakhmet (lion-headed goddess, wife of Ptah). Behind the head is a hole for threading. The figure has the left arm folded over the stomach and is apparently wearing a skirt. 2002.98.0927.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.32 There is a broad, black band at the interior of the rim. On the top of the rim there are black tongues, apart from the surface of the handles, decorated with palmettes. Waves are used to decorate the edge of the rim, while the handles bear small palmettes on their sides and the rest is painted black, as is the body between. Both neck panels have ivy and dots joined by vine. Both sides of the body show a female head, facing left and wearing a decorated cap with a spiked stephane over it. There is a small window (rectangular motif with black vertical line), top right on both sides. Side A, however, has a strigil with wavy endings above the head, top left. Side B has a knot of hair emerging through the apex of the cap. On both sides there are volute-shaped motives at the end of the cap and below the woman's chin. Side A: The woman wears a black earing (a circle and hanging dots) and a neclace of black beads. A hair with a heart-shaped ending falls vertically over her neck. On the other hand, the woman on side B wears a similar but yellow earing and a neclace made of yellow beads. Both women are framed by two vertical red bands, decorated with two similar motives of a vertical row of dots between thin lines. These columnar patterns seem to support a horizontal red band over the head, ornated with tongues between thin lines (one above and two below). However, the surface under the heads is not identical for both sides. Side A has a red band with dots between lines and side B has two parallel lines and the wave pattern. Both the scenes are partly ruddled and added yellow is used to render the details. Miltos apparently was applied last.The lower half of foot is ruddled. 2005.89.0042.jpg
REDMG: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
