Standing figure is wearing a cape, possibly suggesting that he, or both figures, are travellers. He also appears to be stirring a pot at the feet of both figures. On the far right of the scene there is a pole with a serpent wrapped around it.
2007.10.2.243 Depiction of a slender figure (almost certainly female) with right arm raised and hand possibly reaching towards the back of the head or hair. Behind the figure is what appears to be a 'Capricornus'. Both figures are facing to the right.
2007.10.2.253 Two figures are depicted. The figure to the left of the scene is a seated semi-naked female. Her dress or cloak lays across her lap and is gathered up in her left hand. Her head is bowed slightly. In the centre of the foreground is a semi-circle which crosses the female figure's left ankle or calf. It is unclear what this might represent. The second figure (to the right) is a smaller winged male facing to the left and the larger figure. He appears to be carrying a bow and stands under a tree. The two figures are almost certainly Aphrodite and Eros.
2007.10.2.260 (A fraction of a gem) a pair of legs are shown with an ancient Greek inscription to the left of them.
2007.10.2.261 Two figures, one is a naked and bearded man standing, the other is a female sitting down. He is holding what looks like a staff or club, which could identify him as Heracles and she is balancing something on her knee. There are trees and vines in the background.

2007.10.2.310 A bearded male crouches in front of a large handled urn. He appears to be holding a small hammer in his right hand which he is possibly using (gaze/concentration are directed towards it). The urn is decorated with what is possibly a sphynx. Very similar image to cast no.597.
2007.10.2.311 A large female figure reclines in the centre of the scene. She is dressed in robes and is wearing either a helmet or a cap (Phyrigian cap?). Her left arm is resting on a disembodied (bearded male) head and her left hand holds a staff which rests against her upper-arm or shoulder. Beneath the large female figure and to the left of the male head are two shapes which possibly represent boats or ships. These shapes might indicate that the portion of the scene below the female figure is in fact a river or the sea. In turn this might suggest that the disembodied head is emerging from the water (possibly identifying it as a river god). To the left of the scene a very small figure appears to be presenting the large female figure with something, possibly a basket or urn. A slightly larger figure, leaning on a stick, looks on from beneath a tree. Above the very small figures head are two animals (presumably intended to appear to be further off in the background). One at least of these animals is certainly a horse. To the right of the large female figure's head there is a representation of a stag. At the top of the scene in a central position are three shapes. It is unclear exactly what these are (possibly huts or houses of some description?).
2007.10.2.312 There are four figures, two standing, two sitting. Possibly shepherds, due to their staffs and a dog.

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 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. Interior: Black, apart from a thin band at the joining point of the rim and neck, and the top surface of the rim, which are reserved. Exterior: The rim is black and there is a thin reddish brown line below it. Neck: There is a thin, black line. Below, there is a fan-shaped palmette (three divisions, a central rectangular part, and the details have been rendered with incisions), between two parts of motifs. The left one may be a palmette (a petal-shaped division in the middle and below, two round? or voluted? motifs almost faded away. The right one could be part of a similar motif.
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.

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
45.10.29 Fragments that join 45.10.23: a)The handle's back is black.

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.

83.9.31 One side of fragment is glazed black with a palmette design. Flowers are situated around a small, indented circle with six tiny indented 'U' shapes inside it. The other side of the fragment is mostly rserved, with a black band at the rounded part of the piece. Near the pointed part of the fragment there is an outer black circle, followed by a smaller black inner circle. Inside the inner circle there is a black dot. 2006.20.0139.jpg
83.9.33 One side of this fragment is black glazed with four flowers on it. The flowers seem to be separated off into pairs, as in between them there is a line with up-side-down 'U' shapes inside it. The other side of this fragment seems to have the remains of what would have, perhaps, been a rim. The rim has black strips on either edge and a strip of terracotta on the top. This 'rim' has more fragment on each of it's sides, which are glazed black.
83.9.35 One side has a single flower on it. If you are looking at the fragment with the flower at the bottom, then above that there is a band which has up-side-down 'U' shapes inside it. The other side seems to have alternate black and terracotta strips on it. One of the terracotta strips appears to be indented. 2006.20.0146.jpg
83.9.6 An almost round, single fragment of a foot to a pot. Base of foot is reserved, with a black indented inner ring; inside this are three more reserved rings, surrounded by thin black circles. In the middle of the rings is a tiny black dot. There is a thick black band all the way round the sides of the foot. The side of this fragment which would have been the inside of the pot, is black and details four flowers grouped together. 2006.20.0121.jpg

85.3.1 All around the neck (except where the handles would have been attached) is a band of chained together, inverted teardrop shapes and dots within two black lines. Main decoration on body consists of two bordered figural scenes; Side A: Dionysus on donkey led by boy; Side B: Hephaistos (Dionysos, according to Mannack) on donkey led by boy. Both scenes are bordered by two lines of vertical dots between three vertical black lines at the sides, and a series of alternating thick and thin vertical black lines above. At the bottom of the body is a band of upward pointing rays. 2007.01.0097.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
91.12.3 Three small pointed legs, of which two are on the shoulders (one on either side of the mouth). 2006.20.0185.jpg
E.23.18 Head only (more rounded than E23.17 and heavier) and part of the headdress. Brown pigment on face, black and white pigment for eyes. It is unclwear what kind of decoration there was on the headdress, however both the carved and painted facial features are very distinct. 2007.99.0105.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.23.3 Model of Nile boat, with six rowers with six oars and a steersman standing and steering with paddle. Another figure standing in front of steersman, by mast, and a final figure sitting behind the rowers. Figures are painted with brown pigment for skin, black pigment for hair. There is a faint red pigment on the 'deck', going from top to bottom and then several horizontal lines.
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.23.4 Inscribed band marking line of shoulder, three uneven lines around middle possibly created by string. Darker areas on the body denote a possible pattern/picture that has now warn away. Below this are four circular, grey patches with darker centres. 2002.98.0067.jpg
E.23.40.1-4 One is a complete ring with an oblong panel on the top / front. The second piece is half a ring with what appears to be a crocodile (?) moulded on to the front. The third piece presumably was the top of the ring and is an oblong panel with incisions. All three are blue and glazed.
E.23.43.3 Cylindrical bead, blue glaze. The bead is shaped somewhat like a bone in that the ends are bulbous either side of a thinner middle.
E.23.44 Glazed blue amulet in the shape of a head wearing a crown. The head is vaguely reminiscent of that of the dwarf god Bes. The top of the crown has been threaded for a string for wearing. The eyebrows are large triangles, above the sacred eyes which are joined. The nose is snout-like in between two puffed out cheeks. The mouth is thin lipped and small verticle lines indicate a beard. 2002.98.0994.jpg
E.23.47.1 A string of random beads placed together. The string consists of two Horus amulets, two lotus petal amulets, two scaraboid amulets, several single beads of circular shapes, one shell, one broken unidentifiable amulet and one cylindrical bead. There are varying colours and sizes. 2002.98.0232.jpg
E.23.48 The internal beads are sewed in a diamond form. The ones on the outside frame the bead net. There's a sacred scarab in the upper area of the net. Beneath it, there are 4 ornaments/amulets, that appear to be the four sons of Horus. 2002.98.0258.jpg
E.23.54 Green shabti, arms folded, shoulders are indicated by the drawing of the figure 'A' on either side of the upper body, there is an inscription in hieroglyphs. The figure is carrying a sack indicating that it is a worker, this is painted on the back of the right shoulder in black. 2008.08.0120.jpg
E.23.59 String of beads made up of three lines of green cylinders and buff disks, these meet up with a short line of brown beads and then split up into three seperate strings again. There are 14 groups of three lines. 2008.08.0083.jpg
E.23.60 The beads are varying in colour but the prominant colour is green. The string the beads are on is actually too long for the beads so it likely not the original string suggesting that these beads were probably not all worn together. 2002.98.0235.jpg
E.26.39A-B Two bracelets, one slightly larger and wider than the other. Probably for child as they are very small. Very light weight and delicate. Both a creamy white colour and smooth on surfaces.
E.62.12 Blue scarab on a flat base, which has vertical lines down the top of the beetle from its throat, and patterned legs. The wings are detached, both with spanned wing decorations. Base is plain. There are 6 small holes on the points of the compass, with 2 at East and at West by the side of the scarab, and three holes on each of the wings. These are at the corners of the joining part to the body of the scarab and one at each end of the wing spans. 2008.08.0054.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.62.27 Coptic cross in bronze, probably early Christian usage. The cross consists of 4 inverted triangles pointing to a similar centre. The top point, two side points and the centre appear to once have had gemstones stuck to them, since there are remnants of the solder that held them on. On top of the cross is circular clasp to enable wearing. 2002.98.0997.jpg
E.62.31 Large red vase. Rounded body with rounded base; no neck, narrow lip and flat rim. Large lugs, on either side, are perforated to take thread. There are splashes of red all over the pot, it is unclear if this is part of the original decoration or somehow added later, since the splashes have no discernable pattern. 2002.98.0039.jpg
E.62.44 At base of shoulders and top of body are incised diagonal bars between bands. Five panels go around the body and are separated by incised chevrons between bands. Two panels show designs of leaves - possibly palm leaves. Two other panels show a collection of pictures which appear to consist of three leaves or feathers, an ear of corn perhaps and other agricultural objects (?). The fifth panel shows similar things to the last two described with the addition of a triangle with horizontal incised lines through it. None of the panels is next to a similar one. There is a flat ridge at the base. Painted to almost have a wood effect.
E.62.52 Beetle is painted with black pigment and some brown on thorax. Wing bars are painted brown and feathers in black pigment. The underside is highly blackened. 2007.99.0110.jpg
E.62.55 There are two concentric rings lightly incised around the lower half of the body. 2002.98.0151.jpg
E.62.8 Incised band two thirds of the way down toward centre of inside. At centre are two pairs of two incised lines with a single circle and a sunken dot incised in centre. 2005.88.0070.jpg
E.63.17 All beads are blue glazed (faience style), shell with mother-of-pearl surface inside. 2005.89.0036.jpg
E.63.2 Sacred eye of the god Horus, originally blue. There is a hole drilled horizontally through the middle of the piece to allow threading. The details are carved into the piece, the top is a line of slightly diagonal lines, below this is a small flat line below this the detail of the actual eye which is common to all sacred eye amulets. 2002.98.0947.jpg
E.63.9 Light green pendant. The image is the goddess of Hathor, goddess of music and dance. Here she is depicted in the form of a highly stylized cow. At the top of the pendant is a loop for threading. The pendant is flat and has the cow-head engraved in the centre with an arch of concentric lines above the head Below the head on either side are parallel vertical lines divided by one horizontal line on both sides. 2002.98.0219.jpg
E.65.17 Amulet shaped like the Ibis bird. The details are unclear but it is apparent that the neck cranes down so that the head sits on the body. The hole for threading is attatched to the neck. The whole bird sits on a flat base. 2002.98.0948.jpg
E.79.2 Such an offering plate was placed in a tomb to provide food for the deceased after death. The plate is oval in shape made with clay and a red slip. Offered here are two loaves of bread, a trussed bull and a leg of beef. The cross channel on the plate allowed the water that was ritually placed in the bowl to drain away down the hole. The water was placed there to moisten the food and provide a kind of magical soup for the deceased. 2002.98.0207.jpg
L.2011.1.64 Pale green, grey, pale blue and dark blue/purple tesserae on a white mortar. Grey and green tesserae are in the background; darker colours (blue/purple) create a circular shape, with lighter colours in the middle (pale blue and green). 2011.96.0096.jpg
L.2016.3.14 The dancer wears a short chiton, only fixed on the right shoulder; left breast and shoulder are bare. Those characteristics are associated with a Maenad. Her hair is tied together to a long plait.
L.2016.3.31 Few traces of different coloured paints. Few, small black or dark brown flecks allover the surface, a little more at the saddle, belly and mane. There are very few traces of green glaze at the top of the nose and front part of belly and saddle (and white as well as red-brownish flecks at the rare part) on the right.

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.

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

B: Satyr head, profile to left; tendrils in lower left and right fields; quarter palmette in upper left field; single palm leaf in upper right field. Although female heads are more popular in such contexts, the large red element in place of the ear is probably a horn and indicates that this is a representation of a satyr. The decoration in the lower left field of the B side indicates the addition of a second layer of black glaze, in a manner than changes the image (from a large tendril to a small tendril below an L-shaped element.
REDMG:1951.147.1 Entirely black, except reserved on the inside of the spout and the underside including resting surface, and red figure decoration: line at middle of neck; ray band at lowest part of neck, above dots; figural scene between two sideways palmettes, enclosed, from the outside bottom of each emerges tendrils; short ray band at interior of lower handle attachment; 10-leaf palmette at exterior of lower handle attachment; flange decorated with egg-and-dot band, beneath a black line; the sides are decorated with an ivy design, effected through incision (tendrils) and added white (leaves).

Body, below: black band, black line, broad black band, black line, black to foot and on top of foot; black band on lower part of concave element; otherwise reserved. Figural scene depicts a male figure wrestling a bull. The figures are flanked by trees with black and white fruits and thin vines. The hero’s clothes hang on the left tree and his quiver hangs above him. While this scene might depict either Herakles with the Cretan bull or Theseus with the (same) bull of Marathon, the incisions on the head covering (slightly stippled) suggest that this is a schematic rendering of Herakles’ lion-scalp helmet. Added white is used for the rendering of details such as fruit on trees, as well as the forepart of the bull, and his tail, while incision is used to indicate the drapery, quiver, and musculature of the hero, as well as his head covering.

The pattern has a thin, black line parting small 'U' shapes. The top half of the pattern has 'U' shapes in it, which have tiny, verticle, red lines inside them. The bottom half is the same, however the 'U' shapes are up-side-down. The neck and small piece of the body, on the fragment, is glazed black and appears to have once had white paint on it. The fragment has a small piece of the pot's body on either side of the neck. One of the sides of the fragment of the body has the top of two figures on it. The right hand side figure is the top of a head but its features are unclear. The left-hand-side figure appears to be a women, with her left arm raised.

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.
