Zig zag carving at base for decoration and a red ribbon for the musician to hold attached to bottom right. 2007.99.0175.jpg
2003.7.16 Curved fragment with rim and stump of handle suggests it was a bowl or cup due to how it open it appears as a shape.

2007.10.2.153 Three figures. A man, naked, is sitting on the floor. Behind him a woman (naked as well?) is sitting on a chair touching his shoulders with one hand and carrying something in the other. Above the man's head a winged-child is pouring water from a vase.
2007.10.2.226 Seated male figure, bearded and naked from the waist up. He is holding what appears to be a scythe (possibly identifying him as Kronos). Elaborate seat, possibly a throne. Detail at bottom left of cast is possibly a temple on the summit of a hill or mountain.
2007.10.2.241 Single figure of a young winged (male) child holding a bow and club in his left hand, the club rests over his shoulder. His quivver is possibly depicted on the ground at his feet. The figure is presumably Eros or Cupid, although the club is an unusual addition (possibly indicating the imitation of Herakles, as in examples found at Pompeii).
2007.10.2.242 A tall and slender female figure carrying a bow and depicted with a stag, possibly identifying the figure as Artemis. The unusual dress might suggest that the gem showed an unknown female depicted as Artemis.
2007.10.2.244 A female figure in short knee-length dress is depicted resting against something in the background of the scene, however, it is unclear whether it is vegetation or a structure. The figure appears to have a quivver on her shoulder, possibly identifying her as Artemis.
2007.10.2.245 A bearded, muscular, and semi-naked seated figure. His clothing is possibly an animal skin (paws seem to be apparent). He appears to be resting as his right arm rests on his knee and his right hand supports his bowed head. He is also holding an unidentified object in his right hand which also rests against his leg. His other hand appears to be holding a further (unidentified) object which rests across his lap. A club rests against his left thigh in the foreground of the scene. There is either a bull or cow depicted by the figure's right leg at the bottom-left of the scene. The figure shown is almost certainly Herakles, possibly resting after one his labours (herding the cattle of Geryon?).
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.
2007.10.2.264 Two figures, a half-nude female seated, with her hand outstretched toward Eros, who is half hovering in the air before her, his arms outstretched towards her hand as if reaching for her. She is possibly Aphrodite.
2007.10.2.265 Three male figures positioned under a tree, two sitting and the one in the middle who appears to be younger is standing on a rock. They are possibly shepherds as one is holding a staff.
2007.10.2.276 Profile of a man facing left wearing a helmet, possibly Apollo, as the Greek inscription beside him says.
2007.10.2.282 Bust of a man facing to the left, he has pointed ears an a smile on his face, possibly has horns as well, could be a faun.
2007.10.2.298 Naked male figure seated and playing a lyre. The figure is surrounded by armour and weaponry: a helmet to his left, a shield with a face at its centre at his feet to the right, and a sword hanging from some kind of frame or resting against it. The figure is possibly identified as Achilles as he was found by the embassy from Agamemnon at the beginning of book IX of Homer's Iliad.
2007.10.2.304 A male figure wearing a skin (possibly a lion skin) struggles with a bull. The bull's head is lowered perhaps indicating that it is charging. Behind the bull, to the right of the cast, there is what appears to be a statue (possibly of female form) with two faces in profile, one facing left and the other right. The animal skin (if it is lion) perhaps identifies the male as Herakles. The scene might be a representation of one of Herakles tasks (yoking of the bulls).
2007.10.2.306 At the centre of the cast is a naked young male, he is seated on what appears to be a large smooth rock. A large serpent is coiled beneath the male figure and to the right a lyre is placed on a stand or podium. On the far right of the cast a second stand or podium is carved, this one has what appears to be a tripod standing upon it. To the far left of the cast stands a clothed female figure. She is holding a rod or staff. Her attention is not upon the central scene, she appears distracted by something which is occurring further left as her gaze is directed that way.
2007.10.2.308 A large ox or bull is represented to the left and centre of the scene taking up most of the space within the cast. The beast's head is turned as if it is looking towards the viewer. To the right a figure (probably male) is seated beneath a tree holding a staff. At the figure's feet there appears to be a second (much smaller) creature.
2007.10.2.309 Bust of a figure (male?) in profile facing right. The figure has long hair and wears a wreath (which type is not clear). He is dressed in a tunic which is fastened at the right shoulder, although the right side of the chest is revealed and appears quite muscular. There is some vague detail at both his back and chest. These appear to be a quivver and a bow, which would almost certainly identify the figure as Apollo.
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?).

The male figure on the right next to the winged figure is sitting naked on a donkey, he is holding his right arm in the air above his head possibly in celebration. On the far left there is a male and a female figure possibly dancing, the female figure is holding what appears to be a cup. The third figure on the left is sitting on the floor and appears to be eating or drinking from a cup or bowl. The fourth figure from the left is playing a flute, on the right to this figure there is a woman holding a cup up in the air in her right hand and in her left hand she is holding a staff. They appear to be engaging in a celebration, possibly a drunken procession. The naked male figure riding the donkey is possibly identified as Dionysus.

A (above): A youth (servant?), making a gesture as if offering something (perhaps a branch, which extends from the servant's wrist) to a bearded, draped man (possibly Dionysos), at centre. He holds a large kantharos and leans against a rock. Behind him is another youth, who is perhaps supporting the rock. On either side of the scene there are palmettes that seem to have sprung from the handles. B (above): Similar to side A, except that the man reclines on a couch, and the vessel is offered to him by a (servant?) woman in front of him. The youth behind him looks to the left. The scene is framed vertically on both sides by a series of dots as well as the same palmettes as on side A.

The back of the handle bears three, almost vertical (the central one is wavy) lines. Below the handle on the body there are five (the one smaller) rosettes (leaved rodakes), with incisions intersecting at the centre. The main design is a swan with outspread wings, facing right. Details are incised and there is some added red on its wings and tail. The swan appears to step on a row of petal-shaped spots that contours the sunk centre of the vessel, serving as a base. 2003.57.0088.jpg

Added red is used for some parts of the ibex's body as well as for the some of the bands of the rock. 2003.06.0006.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

Side of foot and underide are reserved. 2003.12.0079.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
45.6.4 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.

Base is raised and has two central circles. 2003.35.0088.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

The scene depicts a nude youth standing in a relaxed pose, 3/4-view to the right. He holds drapery, bunched up, under his left arm, and seems to converse with a drapped woman seated to the left on an undulating rock. She holds a mirror in her right hand. Both are diademed. A small, winged Eros flutters above them, and he has crowned the youth. A single branch emerges from behind the rock. Next comes an older Eros (depicted as an adolescent) seated near profile to the left (the seat is no longer visible), holding an opened box (the type that was used to house alabastra such as that which he decorates, according to Trendall and Cambitoglou 2.605).

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
51.4.2 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
51.4.4 Rim: The side surface bears a black, meander pattern. Neck: A procession of two chariots, each with four horses (four pairs of feet) but only the first charioteer is visible, wearing a chiton, whose added white colour has faded away. There are incisions to denote the details, as well as added red (especially for the tails and mane of the horses).There is a black line under the scene, to render the ground. Body: It is black and so is the interior, apart from the top surface of the rim that is reserved (but glazed) and a red, thin band at the upper neck. 2007.99.0097.jpg
51.4.8 Neck and mouth, inside and outside, are black. Decoration in a panel. The top of th epanel is decorated with small balck tongues. Under them,lotus buds and flowers, purple patch on each flower, with a row of black dots above them. Cock to the right faces swan to the left, with extended wings. Added purple on wings.

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. Both interrupted at the joining point of the handle to the neck. The shoulder is covered with a guilloche (pattern of interwoven fillets) with teardropped terminations. 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.

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. Below the scene, there are two lines (not evenly formed at all in their length) and a band of added red. Below that, the vessel is black, with two concentric circles on the surface of the foot. The resting surface is reserved. 2013.99.0165.jpg
51.7.12 Originally two handles, now only one remains, but they were both black, as are the interior walls. Exterior design shows a similar picture on both sides of a youth wrapped in leimation. Beneath each handle is a palmette with spiraling tendrils and serrated leaf below. Bottom of body below decoration black. Reserved ring on top of foot. Footring black inside and out, base is reserved with central dot and two circles drawn by hand. 2003.93.0368.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
51.7.5 Interior reserved; black glaze on mouth and upper half of neck, as well as upper half of handle; lower part of neck decorated with tongues that suggest ribbing; shoulder decorated (except under handle) with an egg-and-dot frieze between two black lines; reserved space at lower part of handle and handle attachment (interior) suggest that the mouth and neck were dipped. Body decorated with a frieze consisting of 7 clusters of three white dots at the top of a figural scene (arranged in upside down triangle shapes): a female figure, standing in 3/4-view to the left, in a relaxed posture with her left leg crossing her right, and her left elbow resting on a pillar (the curvy element in added white suggests that this is meant to represent natural rock). She wears a hairband and kekrphylon on her head, triple-dot earrings, two or three necklaces (two strands of white beads beneath a black line), two white bracelets on each wrist; a belted sleeveless chiton, and white slippers. She holds, in her upraised right hand, a mirror surrounded by white dots, and, in her left hand, a phiale that is surrounded by white beads, as well as a beaded sash. A large palmette, with a white dot on the heart and white dots on each volute, fills the space beneath the handle. From each volute emerges tendrils and floral decoration that frame the image of the woman. A 6-petal rosette fills the space to the right of the woman; to her left are a window and a dotted circle (cog-wheel?) in the upper left field, and an olive branch in the lower left field. On the body, beneath the figural scene, are a single reserved band and a thicker black band. The foot is reserved on the top element, and glazed black on the ridge and lower element; the underside and resting surface are reserved. 2008.99.0557.jpg

Intricate tongue pattern around base of neck with a circular palmette pattern below. Main design, from left to right, shows Eutychia (EUTUXIA) standing to the right, holding a box in her left hand, with a string of embossed flowers (?) hanging down from her right hand. Beside her is a diphros with a cushion. Aphrodite ([A]FRODITH) sits, profile to left, in the centre and to left is small Himeros (IMEROS) in white, holding a wreath. To her right is a standing Makaria ([MAK]ARIA). Black egg pattern beneath main design. Moulded foot ring with grooves around the side. Black on top but reserved underneath.
52.3.3 Inside is black on neck and rim but reserved inside the body apart from numerous black splatters of paint. Diamond pattern with dots on rim, rays and palmettes on rim above each handle. Side has dots and two rows of wavy lines. Handles are black as is the neck between them. Neck design same as on rim. Row of tongues on shoulder. Scene similar on both sides.

54.8.1 Inside has a ribbed texture and is reserved apart from thin bands around rim with vertical bars overlapping the rim. Single ribbon handle which is unevenly bent, has horizontal lines down back and is reserved underneath. Procession of seven mourning women, in profile all facing right, framed by wavy lines, with two bands above and below and three vertical lines at right and left of panel. In front of the sevnth woman there ae three loop patterns, with dots. The women are wearing long garments, have long hair and ftech one arm over their head, as a mourning gesture. Face drawn in outline. No use of incision for any details. Below 'SSSS' pattern, then horizontal lines. Moulded ridge and groove below around foot. Base is flat and reserved. 2008.98.0351.jpg
56.8.4 Black inside and out except for an egg-and-dot band framed by two black lines at the front of the base of the neck, the figural design, and the reserved underside. Body: A satyr seated between two similar palmettes (the left one larger; each is comprised of a flower in the middle of two volutes framed by a short half-heart-shaped pattern on either side). The satyr is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a rocky mass that is spotted (perhaps it is covered with an animal skin). He looks profile to the left and he wears a taenia or band on his head, as well as a long, beaded necklace over his left shoulder and across his chest. He holds a phiale (its rim is marked with yellowish dots) in his left hand and a fillet in his right hand. The fillet is purple. The taenia, necklace, and rim of the phiale are coloured white with yellow wash. On the back a drip of (probably accidental) white paint. 2003.59.0004.jpg
56.8.8 On the exterior of the rim, S pattern. A fight of three warriors between onlookers; on the left, an onlooker between two runners, on the right, a runner between two onlookers and at the back a floral motif (lotus-palmette cross?): Two semi-spherical palmettes chained in the middle by circular bands, dotted in the centre, and held on a columnar motif with similar (only more conical) palmettes as endings (top and bottom) by black strips. Many of the figures appear to be holding spears (in the case of warriors) or have in front of them the same attribute (long, thin, vertical or diagonal lines). There are variations in the rendering of armour, hairstyles and drapery, mostly executed by incisions. The scene is framed by bands, top and bottom. Above the top band is a reserved circle, a thin, red, circular band and then the vessel is black up to the base where there is another red circular band. The interior of the footring is black. The broad, reserved base has a black circle inside a black band in the centre. Additionally, there are six dots (four are bigger) placed randomly on the reserved area of the bottom. Interior: The surface is black from the rim to the tondo, except for two, red, concentric bands approximately 1 cm within the carination, and a similar red band framing the tondo. Inside the tondo is a representaion of a cock in profile to the right with a flower-bud emerging in the background. Red paint: tail, wings. Moreover, incised over the red ring surrounding the tondo there is a mercantile graffito (?). The handles are black but reserved within. The underside of the foot decorated with black dot at the centre, surrounded by black band and 6 black dots around it, uncanonically placed 2003.95.0104.jpg
60.1.4A-B The rim is painted black. On receptacle laurel spray / leftward chevrons, beneath it broad streaky black band not reaching as far as foot and running up into laurel fringe where the brush in taken off. Ring foot and underside reserved. Edge of lid decorated with evenly spaced black dots. It is framed with 2 black bands. The zone towards the knob is decorated with eggs. Black band defines the zone and the transition to the knob, whose neck is reserved. The upper surface of the knob is black. 2004.05.0002.jpg
65.6.1 The mouth (exterior and interior), larger upper part of the neck and the handle are black (uneven and at most areas reddish brown) apart from the upper surface of the rim, which is red. There is a grey line on the neck and the surface of the shoulder bears decoration of voluted palmettes with narrow divisions and tendrils, widely spread to fill the space. The upper part of the body bears a meander pattern between two pairs of brown lines (above and below). Every fourth meander the pattern is interrupted by a saltive cross with a dot on each one of the triangular surfaces around it. The meander pattern continues as far as the scene below it is depicted. Main scene: A young man, wearing underwear? is seated on his himation, at the left side of a two-stepped tomb or pedimental funerary monument (grave-stele). At the right of the scene, a woman wearing a black and red peplos is bringing offerings. There is a brown line below them and the rest of the vessel is black, with the exception of two exteremely thin lines that are reserved at the joining point of the foot to the body and the side surface of the foot that is red, although the slip has not been evenly applied on the whole of the surface. Lastly, the resting surface is reserved. 2003.95.0173.jpg
67.6.3 Standing woman, left arm akimbo, holding palm leaf far in right hand. Wearing head dress and robes. Possibly portrayed as pregnant (?). 2004.95.0067.jpg
68.12.2 Decorated with streaky black glaze, which becomes dark red in placces. Knob black glazed on exterior of two recesses, side, and underside, as well as stem and inner part of domed top. Beyond this a frieze of 9-leaf palmettes alternating with water birds, profile to the left, with intervening spots between palmettes and swan. This frieze is surrounded by a band of vertical bars between two glazed bands. The underside is reserved. 2002.97.0272.jpg
71.12.1 The interior and the exterior of the mouth as well as the handle glazed. On the exterior, the black is fired brown. At base of neck, ridge in place of drip-ring painted purple. Shoulder: ivy leaves on each side of central purple line(six above, seven below); on body five inverted opening lotus flowers with central petals white. Above them row of white dots. Lower half of body and exterior of the foot glazed black (turning red in places). Resting surface and the underside of the foot reserved. 2002.97.0702.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
73.9.23 Fragment with both red and black on it. On the surface (depending which way up you hold it!?)On the left there is the edge of a curve with two black dots inside it, to the right of this is a vertical line. To the right of this line are what could be the edge of two big petals or leaves., in the centre of the first there is a dot and a line. Underneath all of these shapes is the edge of what seems to be a big circle in a red coloured gloss. The back of the fragment is covered in a black glaze that has come out as red in patches(?) 2002.97.0191.jpg
73.9.3 Singular arm of handle remains, outside of which has a black glaze, the inside does not. Remains of rim, same colour as this handle. Dot rosette and dotted swastika below handle, tip of palmette leaf on right of handle. Two dark brown bands at bottom edge of fragment. 2002.97.0215.jpg
73.9.5 Rim is flat and black on top, as well as underneath and inside. Below, on ruddled surface, metopic ornament. Below, on reserved surface, meander round dotted square. 2002.97.0196.jpg
73.9.7 The inside is black with a reserved band around the inside of the rim and again roughly half way down the inside. In the centre is the remains of a brown disk. On the outside, only part of the rim and main zone of skyphos remains, as well as one handle. The handle is mostly black, but reserved on the inside. The main zone shows: parts of three palmettes, one upright, one reversed, then another upright in black. A thick black band runs round the outside of the rim, a thin one underneath the main zone. The stem is black as is the upper ridge of rim of the foot. The lower ridge is reserved, as is the base of the foot, except for a band of red/brown about half a cm in. The inside of the foot is hollow and reserved, except for a very thin red/brown band, and a dot in the centre. 2002.97.0189.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
76.6.1 Exterior of the handle and upper part of the body, the interior of the trefoil mouth and the back side of the neck are painted black. On the front side of the neck, decoration on a metope. Probably black painted horizontal bands (?). On the shoulder is a row of large black, irregular dots. Body has as chevron design and base is decorated with a cross hatch pattern all over. 2008.99.0388.jpg
83.9.32 On one side of fragment it is mostly terracotta with a small patch of black gloss, located on the end which is squared off. In, almost, the centre of this side there is a small, black circle with a tiny, black dot in the middle. On the other side of this fragment it is glazed black with a palmette design on. The flower pattern has a circle around half of it. This circle has 'U' shapes on it and appears as if it would have continued around the pot, from which the fragment came. 2006.20.0141.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.
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.23.19 Coarse red fabric, burnished. Stylized ships painted, one on either side, in dark red pigment, with details such as oars, sails, and 's' shapes representing the sea. 2002.98.0025.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.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.62.23 Triangular shaped fragment of white limestone, with inscription in relief as well as a bull in the bottom right corner. 2008.08.0144.jpg
E.62.37 Wide mouth, no neck tapering to a very slightly flat base. Very shallow rivets form concentric around the bowl, almost as if the potter has lightly brushed around the pot with his fingers during its creation. The surphace is course and it is dark red in colour. 2002.98.0085.jpg
E.62.40 Lid is white, naturally occuring wavy pattern on top and bottom. Ring is more yellow in colour than lid and with less patterning. Base is yellower than the other two pieces and with the same wave pattern as the lid on one side. Heavy object. 2002.98.0008.jpg
E.63.8 A miniature blue figure of the gods Isis and Horus, Horus as her child is sat on her lap. The detail is not clear and there is a hole in the crown of Isis presumably so the necklace could be strung for wearing. 2002.98.0935.jpg
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:1934.26.1 Thinly applied black glaze on interior, handles, and lower part of bowl, as well as a narrow band at the bottom of the lip, and the exterior surface of the foot. 2004.99.0896.jpg
REDMG:1934.51.8 Black glaze all over, although patchy (perhaps as a result of poor firing) on the lower part of the body and foot. 2004.99.0795.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.3 Black inside, outside and rim. Handle is black all over as is top half of neck. Lower half of neck has an umbrella pattern with 12 tongues on top. Large palmette with tendrils under handle on body and tendrils either side of scene. Scene is a woman standing, facing right, holding mirror in right hand and a box in left looking at seated Eros who is holding a mirror in his right hand. Added yellow over white, and white on Eros's wings, mirrors, box and headresses. Traces of miltos. Reserved band beneath scene. Black foot but reserved resting surface and base. (Modern) red cross drawn on base.
REDMG:1935.87.30 Reserved interior. Pattern consists of three red bands on an almost white ground. Remainder of pyxis is reserved, as is the base, which is flat.
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

Lower part of neck decorated at front with a short laurel wreath, to left, between two narrow reserved bands. Beneath the figural scene is a groundline comprised of a frieze of alternating maeanders (three) and saltire squares (one). Narrow reserved line at join with base, bottom edge of base, and underside. The figural scene is framed between a tendril, above the left handle, and a larger vegetal ornament, from which emerges a lotus bud. A Youth stands in 3/4-view to the right. He is nude, except for drapery slung over his bent right arm and held in his lowered left hand, and a white taenia on his head. He also holds a staff in his slightly upraised right hand. At centre is a bird (crane), seated in a perirhanterion (basin), supported by a fluted, tapered column, with a dotted capital, on a two-stepped base. The steps are decorated with small black spots and thin diagonal lines that suggest a marbled appearance. On the other side of the perirhanterion stands a woman, in 3/4-view to the left, with her weight on her right leg and her left leg relaxed. She wears a belted, sleeveless chiton, double bracelets on each wrist, a beaded necklace, and a spiked stephane, as well as a short pony tail.

Scene, A: A naiskos comprised of two Corinthian columns supporting a tapered epistyle and black pediment, on top of a podium (white maeander on a brown background, between alternating black and white horizontal bands). Two white female figures stand within the naiskos. The figure at left, standing in 3/4-view to the right, wears a himation over her left arm and hips, over a peplos (decorated with two vertical purple bands on the chest). Her hair is bound in a sakkos from which emerges hair at front and back; her jewelry includes a beaded necklace and two bracelets on each wrist. She holds a fan in her raised left hand as well as a wreath in her lowered right hand. She faces another woman (probably the deceased) who is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a stool (diphros) and rests her feet on a footrest (hypopodion). She wears a short sleeved chiton and a purple himation that she holds above her right shoulder in an unveiling gesture (anakalypteria). Her hair too is bound in a sakkos, from which emerges hair at the back; she wears two necklaces, one beaded, and two bracelets on each arm. A small ornament (or pures) hovers in the field between the two women. On either side of the naiskos is a kalathos (basket), below a rosette (red with added yellow and white), above a pair of white balls interspersed with clusters of three white dots, and above a double line of white dots. Each basket (both are identical) is decorated with a cross-square with intervening triangles (top) and alternating bands of zigzags, and white and black lines, as well as a band of vertical bars. 2005.89.0030.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.22 Mouth black inside and out, with a reserved lip; reserved neck; black on exterior of handle; band of black vertical bars above band of black rays on shoulder. Body, top: black line. Body (at front, only): black line; two rows of black dots alternating with white dots; two black lines; figural scene. Body, below: two black lines, black band, black line, black to foot and on top of foot; black on torus; otherwise reserved. Figural scene depicts a charioteer, dressed in a white tunic, driving a quadriga profile to right; the horses raise their forelegs as they pass a white meta (post). Another figure, possibly Athena, with helmet and spear, runs alongside the horses, so that (s)he is obscured by them. 2005.99.0074.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.23 Mouth black outside; reserved neck; black on exterior of handle; band of black vertical bars above band of black rays on shoulder.

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. On attribution, cf. CVA Cambridge 1, pls. 22, 21. 2005.99.0076.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:1953.25.39 Black glaze on interior, rim, and most of handles (dipped) as well as vertical surface of the rim, the lower body, and the lower element of the foot. Otherwise reserved, except for vertical bars in handle zone, on either side. 2005.99.0148.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.81 The piece consists of half of a foot, which is broken about halfway down its length. The half remaining includes all five toes, with slightly curling little toes and a rather stumpy big toe. The foot sits upon a thick sandal. Under this is a chunk of unworked marble, presumably part of the original base of the statue, which takes up about the same amount of mass as the carved foot does. This underside is rough and worn. The break halfway through the foot in fairly clean, leaving a rough, but planar surface. 2002.97.0588.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.85 Top is flat and squared off. Groove below rim then the rim is diagonal, rounded ridge at base. Large flat section with design sculpted on top of it so it is in relief. Scene is of a griffin, a winged creature with bird head and lion-like paws. The ribs are clearly visible as are the lines in the wings. Front left paw is raised above a stick with snakes (?) curled around or a decorative branch (?). Below is a higher moulded ridge with raised egg and dot pattern beneath, before another moulded ridge. Bottom is flat but has diagonal scratches carved in - perhaps to help this section adhere to whatever it was originally part of. Many inclusions in material. 2005.90.0042.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.98 Small male head with curly thick hair, a large beard, and a large moustache, as well as a furrowed brow. The shape of the head suggests that it was once attatched at the back to a wall or other verticle structure, although that back of the head does have a concave structure to it. Coarse, dark red fabric. 2003.93.0167.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:1964.1640.1 Rim of object remains, as does circular handle, placed horizontally just below rim. Traces of black glaze. 2006.20.0527.jpg
REDMG:1964.1651.1 Reserved all over outer surface. Thin stem down to flaring foot. Base is damaged but appears to have been flat. Moulded bands on body - deliberate or as a result of production (?) 2003.93.0160.jpg
REDMG:1964.1683.1 Rim and handle of cup. Fragment is completely reserved. Handle is small and pinched in a triangular shape. Handle is attached to a lower rim, suggesting that a lid was once present which would sit outside this rim. The higher rim is almost to the top of handle. Towards bottom of fragment, the slope becomes steeper as it gets nearer to base. 2006.20.0525.jpg
REDMG:2004.95.1 Interior of mouth black; lip reserved; exterior of mouth black, as is handle (repainted); vertical bars at the bottom of the neck; lotus-dot chain on the shoulder; Dionysos riding on a mule, between two satyrs, one holding a maenad. Below the figural scene is a black band, a reserved band, and then a black zone extending to the foot, which is black on the top, reserved on the convex surface and the underside. Figural scene: A nude satyr (in a crouching pose) runs profile to the right, holding a maenad on his shoulder; the maenad, who turns her head profile to the left, stretches her arms to either side and holds a rhyton in her slightly upraised left hand. She wears a kekryphylon (red), necklace (incised) and himation. Dionysos, seated on a mule, rides profile to the right; the god, wearing a red and blck ivy wreath and a himation decorated with red dots, holds a red keras (horn of plenty) from which emerge ivy tendrils that serve as a backdrop for the entire scene. Leading the mule (through use of a white rein, of which a ghost remains) is another nude satyr, running profile to the right, while he turns his head profile to the left. Other details include red on the beards and tails of satyrs and a red fringe for the foremost satyr. Incision is used extensively for anatomy and drapery. An unusual effect is created through the use of incision for the forearm of the leading satyr, which he lays across his torso, which is not incised save for two small circles to indicate his nipples. 2004.99.0868.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.2003.6.10 All of the fragments bear part of the same decoration: the interior surface is glossy black as are the side surfaces of the foot (both on the exterior and interior), apart from a reserved (but glazed line) on the resting surface. The base is glazed so that it appears yellowish-brown and is decorated with four concentric circles and a dot at the central part of the base. 2006.20.0670.jpg

TEMP.2003.6.6 The interior is black, but there is a reserved band on the fragments that come from the vessel's rim (a, b, c, d), which also bear a reserved band on the upper internal side of the rim. a) The black colour appears streaky (it varies from reddish brown to brown) on the rim (interior and exterior), as well as on the handle. The colour of the decoration appears brown and reddish brown on some areas. There is a broad band that bears two palmettes (one on either side of the double handle), while the surface between the two springs is reserved. On the left side of the fragment there is the right part of a motif (front legs of horses?). Below, there is part of a black line. b) The rim is black. Below, there is the upper part of a charioteer, riding a chariot with four horses (part of them is preserved).

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 is part of a black line that contoured the handle (partially covered with adhesives and plaster). On the left, there is another figure (carelessly rendered, between three similar branches (on the right) and part of an (undecipherable) object that consists of black colour, incisions and added red colour. 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.
