2003.7.26 Probably part of a jar due to the way the bottom of the fragment juts out at an angle - possibly the body of the jar. The interior is painted black/dark red, although most has rubbed off. The top half of the exterior has been painted white (barely visible), with parallel lines of small black dots, and black squares in between these two lines. The rest of the fragment is painted black. 2007.03.1192.jpg

50.12.13 Interior shows remnants of white slip. Exterior, although very worn, shows a band of black across the top and some wavy black lines are barely visible. 2003.98.0108.jpg
51.7.11 The interior and rim are black, except for two reserved bands on the interior, at the top and bottom of the lip. Just under the rim is a laurel wreath, facing to the right. A palmette fills the space beneath each black handle; a series of dots mark each handle zone. The scene on each side is bordered by two tendrils that emerge from the ground, in most cases flanked by two smaller tendrils; at the centre of each large tendril is a volute, from which spring two demi-palmettes. Side A: Wreathed, draped Apollo stands in 3/4-view to the right, holding a laurel branch in his right hand and a phiale and fillet in his upraised left hand. He faces a white-haired, bearded Papposilen, who stands in profile to the left. The Papposilen wears a taenia on his head, an animal skin (nebris) over a shaggy-white body suit, and slippers. He holds a mirror in his upraised left hand and a lyre and a fillet in his lowered left hand. Above him is bust of a goddess, probably Hera (or Leto, or Cyllene?), with her face in profile to the right, enclosed within a window, outlined in white. She wears a high crown and jewellry and holds a sceptre in front of her left shoulder. There are ivy leaves in the field. Side B: Two standing, draped youths, facing each other and wearing wreaths. The left figure has a 'V' drape on his chest and his left hand is barely visible; the right hand of the right figure emerges from his himation; he holds a branch out to his companion. Beneath the scenes is a band of right-facing waves. The lower body and foot are black, except for a reserved band on a groove at the top of the vertical surface of the foot, and the reserved underside. 2004.80.0002.jpg
