2007.10.2.110 Naked figure lying down facing away from the viewer. By the feet is a winged infant. There appears to be a serpent/snake entwined around the figure.
2007.10.2.111 2 warriors with shields and a naked male figure standing between them (he may also be a warrior but he isn't wearing any armour and he isn't carrying a shield). The warrior on the right is moving behind a wall so only 1 leg and his shield is visible.
2007.10.2.112 Animal fight. It appears to be a horse being attacked by wolves.
2007.10.2.150 Two warriors, naked with helmets. The first is facing left and carries a sward in one hand and a shield in the other; he is on his knees. The second is facing right and he seems to be holding back something with his spear.
2007.10.2.195 A naked man with a clothe draped over his left shoulder, carrying what appears to be a dead animal.
2007.10.2.219 2 male figures, one seated (left figure) and one standing (right figure). Seated figure carrying a staff, possibly denoting older age or social class. 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.
2007.10.2.223 Standing naked male figure. Looking at what appears to be a small statue. Something has been placed at the foot of the statue, possibly an offering of some description. Detail too shallow to identify.
2007.10.2.224 Bust of figure facing to the right wearing what appears to be a 'Phrygian Cap' or possibly a helmet. Clothing suggests that the figure might be female (possibly Athena if the head dress is in fact a helmet). Not enough of hair-style visible to conclusively decide gender.
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.
2007.10.2.237 A group of figures. The centre of the cast is a male figure who appears to be dressed in armour (helmet, shield, and cuirass). He appears to be standing on the deck of a ship. The figure is presenting or showing the head of a bull to a second figure (female) who appears to standing on the quay of a harbour. On the far right of the cast (behind the central male figure) is a second soldier. The scene possibly portrays an encounter between Theseus and Ariadne after the killing of the Minotaur.
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.
2007.10.2.245 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?).
2007.10.2.249 The large profile of a bearded male face. Much of the top and back of the head is cut-off by the edge of the cast. To the left of the face is what appears to be a pole with a snake coiled around it.
2007.10.2.250 A young male figure is depicted standing and facing to the left. He is naked from the waist up. The figure is holding a sword which he appears to be examining. The point of the blade is pointed towards the figure's body, the hilt away from the body.
2007.10.2.252 The bust of what appears to be a woman in rear 3/4 aspect with her head turned back and to the right so that her face is presented in profile.
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.
2007.10.2.255 Three figures, one on a chariot, pulled by two horses. Another figure, a man, wearing a helmet is being handed some sort of cloth by the other figure who appears to be a woman.
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.
2007.10.2.268 A male head, with lots of curly, wild hair covering the face. In the top right there is what appears to be a pointed ear or a horn, it could possibly be the god Pan or a faun.
2007.10.2.273 Perseus is standing, resting his shield on a pile of what appears to be stones, the shield shows the reflection of Medusa.
2007.10.2.274 A profile facing forward with curly hair and what appears to be wings coming out of their temples.
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.
2007.10.2.290 A man, possibly a soldier, with a shield and a helmet on, he is standing next to what appears to be a pillar with a snake coiled around it, at the foot of the pillar is a lamb and perched on top of the pillar is a bird.
2007.10.2.295 Naked male figure facing into the scene of the cast, his back to the 'viewer'. The figure appears to be holding a staff which is mostly obscured behind his body. The attention of the figure is on something in the bottom left of the scene; however, the detail is not clear enough to reliably identify what it is.
2007.10.2.300 Standing frontal image of a clothed male figure. The figure appears to be holding something in each hand; however, damage to the surface makes it impossible to identify the items.
2007.10.2.302 Three female figures, two figures to the left standing, semi naked figure on the right is seated, middle figure also semi naked, two figures on either side appear to be helping the middle figure bathe left figure holding her hair and right figure touching her back
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).
2007.10.2.305 A male figure stands over another figure, prostrate on the ground. The standing figure (probably male) is dressed in a cloak and tunic and holds a blade or scythe in his right hand. The standing figure appears to be holding the decapitated head of the second figure in his left hand. Behind the figure prostrate on the ground is an ox whose front legs are raised from the ground. To the right of the cast a tree or bush is depicted with a large bird (possibly a peacock) perched on one of its branches. At the centre of the cast there is what appears to be a standard or post with two serpents coiled about it. The serpent's heads face each other at the top of the post.
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.
2007.10.2.307 A bearded male figure crouches before a large handled urn. The urn is decorated with a simple line pattern. The figure appears to be holding a small hammer in his right hand, which he is possibly in the process of using (his gaze/concentration appears fixed upon it). To the far right of cast a tree is depicted, perhaps to simply denote the scene is an exterior one (rural rather than urban might also be suggested).
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.
2007.10.2.310 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?).
2007.10.2.331 Two male figures fighting over a woman who has fallen in-between them. One has a dagger, the other could possibly be protecting her. Both men are wearing helmets and armour. There are vases and decoration in the background.

At the tip of the elephant's trunk there is a scorpion. When the cast is turned 90 degrees anti-clockwise, there appears to be a second male profile, facing to the right and wearing a hat.
2007.10.2.348 Two figures, one sitting and one standing, in front of them is a skeleton and nearby is Eros who appears to be holding a torch.
2007.10.2.350 A seated male figure playing a harp, his left foot seens to be resting on what appears to be a large urn.
2007.10.2.357 A sea monster with the torso and head of a woman and many legs, possibly in the form of snakes, with wild beasts emerging from her body. She's carrying an oar like a weapon. There's a person tangled in her tentacle-like legs. She could be a representation of Scylla.
2007.10.2.360 A naked, young male figure, holding what appears to be a piece of cloth and he is leaning against some sort of post.

Outer and inner side of footring black, resting surface and underside reserved except for central black dot surrounded by three concentric bands. Moulded circle c.1.0 wide houses thickest, central black band. 2010.98.0133.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.
45.10.14.1 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. There is part of a thin, horizontal line on the top of one of the divisions and more to the left there is a circle with a dot in the middle and two vertical lines (part of the guilloche). vi) Small part of the guilloche and radial-shaped motif below that.
45.10.22 a: The upper surface of the rim is reserved, although glazed. However, the side surfaces (internal and external) are black (apart from a reserved area that would not have been visible if the handle was not missing). The neck is also black on the inside, however, there is a perpetual motif of palmettes on the external surface. These are double palmettes (5 narrow divisions upwards and 5 similar ones downwards) that look as if chained together by a horizontal row of small rings and each such palmette is separated from the other by a vertical line with wider endings, while thin, curved lines (above and below) frame each palmette. The sides of the handle bear a black band each and there is also a thin line underneath them that contours the end of the neck. On the carination that divides the neck from the shoulder there is a thin line with added red colour. The shoulder bears a motif of tongues, divided by vertical lines, while a line underneath contours them. The motif does not appear under the surface of the handle. At some point underneath this pattern there is the beginning of another motif (black with 3 dots of added red and scale-like incisions). The interior of the rest of the vessel is reserved, since it is an amphora. b: It bears exactly the same motif as the previous neck bit. c: From the branch of a three-peaked floral motif there emerge two curved lines that are downwards and upwards, each forming an ellipsoid-shaped frame from whose lower (in the case of the curved line that goes downwards) or upper (in the case of the other line) endings form one floral motif each. The left one is a voluted palmette with 5 petal shaped divisions and the right one is a three-pointed flower, similar to the central floral motif, but bigger. Although the upper part of this pattern is not preserved apart from the starting point of the motives, it is certain that this would have been the heraldic motif depicted. Underneath this area there is a thin, black line and below that, a pattern of guilloche ( branches with tear dropped endings interwoven together) with a row of dots, framed (above and below) by two pairs of concentric lines. Towards the end of the fragment (which is also towards the end of the vessel) there is a radial-shaped motif, two lines and the rest of the surface is black. d: It is a part of the body's area that bears the guilloche pattern and the radial-shaped motif underneath, but one third of it is not preserved. e: On the left there is the upper part of probably a palmette (two endings of petal-shaped divisions). Next to that there is the depiction of a draped lower body part. The drapery is formed by the incisions on a black surface. There are diagonal incisions and wavy endings to denote the folds of an himation, as well as the lower termination of the chiton, which is suggested by two almost horizontal incisions, a wavy line and another horizontal incision. the drawing is detailed and clear. f: The part between the surface above the knees and a bit below the calf of a male figure that wears a short chiton (incised, wavy folds are visible above the knee), as well as grieves with out curving terminations (Hermes?) of added red colour, now fadded away. On his left there is the upper part of a palmette and on his left there is a diagonal line, with rows of dots on either side (characteristic of Dionysus). Very clear drawing. g: Half of the three-peaked flower, a bit of a black line and two petal-shaped motives. On the side, there is part of the dotted branch and what appears to be part of a figure's drapery (upper right body part ?), with some incisions used to render details. h: Between the lower body part of two figures there is part of the dotted branch. What is preserved from the right figure is incised lines and circles on a black surface. The left figure's drapery (peplos and himation ?) is preserved (below the waist), consisting of incised diagonal and wavy lines to denote the folds. i: A central male figure's (Dionysus) body from shoulder to legs is visible and surrounded by a dotted branch. He is standing between two figures. The male figure (there is part of beard with added red) on the left holds part of the branch with his palm (upper body without the head is preserved). The only visible part of the draped figure on the right is part of the legs. Incisions are used to render details. j: Apollo playing his lyre (kithara). The head (in profile, facing right), right hand and part of the god's front side of the body is visible, as well as the largest part of the lyre. Part of a dotted branch exists in the background. Incisions have been used to render the chords of the lyre as well as for the eye, contour of hair, ear and contour of the god's body, while a taenia (fillet) on his head is in added black colour. k: Only part of a thin, black line is preserved. l: two broad black bands that overlap at some point. Incisions and the ending of a dotted branch (part of draped figure?). 2010.98.0172.jpg
45.6.39 Wide flarred lip, very hollow, flat interior. Flat resting surface with raised base, reserved. Black glaze ciovering only on part of the interior and exterior of the bowl, an elongated semi circle. The bowl is possibly marked from something else or this could be a burn mark rather than remians of a black glaze. 2006.20.0163.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
47.2.4 The vessel's tondo is ornated with impressed (stamped) decoration, of thirteen ellipsoid motives (eggs, some not fully formed) that seem to be hanging from an impressed circle, on whose border rest thirteen palmettes (voluted with narrow divisions) on stalks. There is a reserved, but glazed line at the lowest part of the body and the concave area of the base is reserved, but glazed, apart from two, concentric, reddish brown lines with a dot in the centre. 2010.99.0177.jpg
47.6.1 The Gorgon Medusa, in both shoulder panels. Area under handles is black. Side A: Achilles on black horse, alongside a red horse with an attendant riding on black horse behind. Troilos lies on ground. Side B: Achilles carrying Troilos toward alter made of bricks with incised lines (the altar might also be interpreted as a fountainhouse). Shrub in front of altar (fountainhouse) Pictures are in red, black, white with detail incised. Below shoulder zone are red and black chevron-palmettes; below this, animal frieze with goats, panther, winged creature and lion. Triangles radiating from base, foot is black and base reserved. Zones separated by bands. 2007.01.0060.jpg
47.6.2A-B Lid: Straight sides and a moulded rim at the top and bottom, both red. The plastic ring at the top of the lid black. The top is decorated with a depiction of a male figure, perhaps Dionysus (Ure) or Pan (Boardman) with horns springing from his head. He wears an animal skin (brownish dots) over his shoulders, with a hoof dangling. He seems to be stepping or sitting on another animal skin. In raised left hand he holds an indeterminate instrument (Ure: handleless fork; Boardman: syrinx) and he rests his right hand, brought before his body, on an oar-shaped object (trumpet; Ure: winnowing fan; Boardman: 'lagobolon'). To his left is the forepart of a pig (or dog?), and to his right, a basket with three corn stalks. There is also a red, thin line at the joining point of the plastic ring and the lid. The decoration of the side surface of the lid is a motif of vertical, hanging, wavy tongues, between reddish brown bands. There is also one inverted heart-shaped motif at some point between the tongues. Body: There is a red line at the rim and another one at half the way up the body, both on the inside and the outside. On the interior there are two, concentric, reddish-brown circles. Exterior: There is also a red line at the bottom of the body, while the disk-shaped ring is reddish-brown. Wide rim at base. Underside is reserved and central section flat. 2007.01.0019.jpg
49.4.2 Woman with a fan and a ball, seated in a naiskos; kalathos on either side. The inner side of the rim bears a broad band (in the middle of the surface). The top surface bears traces of carelessly applied red colour. The edge is also black and its side surface bears a reserved line and a black line underneath, from which seem to be hanging short, vertical lines. The upper part of the neck is reserved, but bears a black band on its lower part. The rest of the neck is decorated with black colour, on top of which there is a tongue pattern in yellow (faded away) that contours the vessel (long, pointed on the bottom tongues). Below, there is a reserved line. Side A: The main scene depicts a female figure seated in a naiskos (monument with pediment, from whose upper part emerge palmettes and tendrils, epistylion, an ionic column on either side an top of a stylobates or crepis, the latter represented with a perpetual pattern of voluted motives and dots in between, framed by white lines, thin, black bands and white bands), on a diphros okladias. The woman is facing left, she is wearing a peplos, holding a fan with her right hand and a round object with the left one, below which there is a row of dots. She also wears a kalyptra and has her hair in a bun, from which emerge two wavy lines with round terminations. Behind her, at the level of her head, there is a window (square object with the middle part riddled). The naiskos is flanked by a kalathos on either side, decorated with black and yellow horizontal lines, tendrils and branches, as well as yellow tongues and yellow meander pattern. There is a row of yellow dots below each kalathos and a rosette on top. Below the row of dots underneath the left kalathos there is another rosette, whereas underneath the row of dots below the right kalathos there is a phiale. The details are executed with added yellow. The handles are black. The reverse is decorated with floral motifs: the area underneath the vertical handle is black, with an H-shaped black motif divided in two by a vertical line, on a round, brown background. The surface below the vertical handle depicts two fan-shaped palmettes, from which emerge elaborate, voluted floral patterns that expand to the surface below the horizontal handles. The lower part of the body is contoured by a wavy-like pattern on a brown background. The area below is black, although streaky on some areas, while the lowest part of the body is reserved but glazed. The foot is black, with a reserved resting surface. 2001.99.0150.jpg
49.8.8 Inside and outside of mouth and handle is black as is neck and back of body. At base of neck is a key / meander design between two moulded ridges and only appears on the front. On the body, metope bearing the figure decoration. On the top of the metope. black tongues.Main design is in a panel showing a Quadriga moving to the left. Horses' heads turned towards different directions. One to the left, other three run their heads to the centre facng each other. On the quadriga, hoplites in profile either side both facing right, holding shields and spears and wearing helmets. One of the shields is decorated with a feline picked out in white, only the back part of which can be seen. Behind the quadriga, a hoplite in profile to the right. He is holding his spear and seems ready to attack. He has a shield decorated with three dots with added white, he wears a short chiton, a cuirass and a Corinthian helmet. In front of the chariot, hoplite in profile, moving to the left, having his head turned backwards. He is wearing cuirass, short chiton, a helmet. He is holding his shield and two spears. Added red-purple on reins of horses and headbands and tunic of warriors, as well as contours of the shields. Added white on lion of the shield and decoration of the shield of the second hoplite which is not clear, the edge of the sword of the first hoplite, the dots on the shiled and a band on the body of the last hoplite. Red band at base of panel running all around the vase's body and foot is black on top, but reserved on side. Resting surface reserved. 2003.97.0621.jpg
50.12.12 Although there is no decoration, there appears to be a line painted just that has faded to the colour of the clay. Below the rim is a roughened area where a handle may have placed. The outer surface of the pot might have been burnished while the inside is less smooth. 2003.98.0250.jpg
50.12.37 White clay fragment slightly curved and the exterior shows detail of a pattern; parallel lines curve accross the fragment to the left there is part of a feather pattern that has a single scroll at the top. On the bottom right the the pattern may be bulb shaped and six curved lines across it. The black paintwork is faded in part while some is still dark. The interior has been painted black while the area below the top has been completely worn. 2006.20.0156.jpg
50.12.49 Fragment, appears to be the upper body of a sculpture of a woman. It has a net like structure of brown lines on both the front and back. 2003.98.0125.jpg
51.1.2 Interior and exterior of the mouth, neck exterior of handles black, fired mostly reddish brown. The underside of the rim has a reserved band. Underside of the handles reserved. 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. 2005.88.0013.jpg
51.4.11 Glaze is dark brown, sometimes with a reddish hue. Glazed on rim, neck (interior and exterior), handles, at junction of body and stand, and on exterior of foot. Cartoon-ish black-figure scenes on body and stand, with incised detail. Body, side A: Legless horseman, with arms spread on either side, to right on a horse held by a bearded man in a short tunic, with a dagger at his right side, who stands to his left. Behind him stands another bearded man wearing a short tunic, who holds a branch in his outstretched right hand, and bends his left arm at his side. Body, side B: Another legless horseman advances to the right, also with arms outstretched, on a horse, galloping towards a bearded, male figure, wearing a long tunic, who stands profile to the left. Stand, side A: Two confronting water birds, with 3 flecks behind the right water bird. Stand, side B: Two male figures in profile to the right, with a dagger at his left side; the second figure, who is shorter, seems to be bound. 2002.97.0369.jpg
51.4.7 Interior surface is black. The exterior surface is black for top half and there is traces of a design on the lower half. It appears to be a lion attacking a goat. The necks of both and the tongue of the lion are purple. 2003.97.0864.jpg
54.2.2 Reserved except for thin red band at rim, thick red band at neck, and medium red band at shoulder with thin streaky bands below it, level to the bottom of the handle. In between the bands there seems to be a pale white wash (?). The external face of the handle is also painted red with a small tail-like extension of paint. 2008.98.0329.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
58.2.6 Brown clay(?), blackened greatly in places. No pattern can be distinguished. 2003.92.0112.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
73.6.4 On the outside surface is a figure zone, on the left edge of which appears to be the edge of a square. To the right of this is the lower half of what appears to be a swastika and below, a dot rosette. A vertical palmette is figured in the middle of the surface, to the right of which is the tail end of a bird, the head and neck missing. Below all of this, is a curved black line, and then the edge of what could be a circle. The inside is covered in black gloss. 2002.97.0209.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
73.9.8 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
79.1.17 Moulded decoration between main discus and nozzle indecipherable; could be birds heads. 2005.01.0321.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. 2006.20.0055.jpg
E.23.17 Face comprises top third of piece, angular. Detail on face uses black pigment (beard. eyebrows and what may be hair). Face and clothing in light coloured pigment, green is used around the eyes, the upper body decoration consists of a large red band, a smaller black band of dashes, a blank band, a light blue band, another black dash band, a thick black band, another dash band, another thick red band, another dash band, another blank band, another thin dash band, and finally a thick band made of black tear shaped vertical stripes. There is also some black pigment on what appears to have represented the shoulders. 2002.98.0100.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. 2007.99.0047.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.23.48 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.62.17 The thorax is made of parallel straight lines. There appears to be a small amount of gold pigment between the beetle and the base, there is no other discernible pigment. 2002.98.0982.jpg
E.62.3 Fragment of Memphite stele with figure worshipping and offering to Ptah, god of Memphis. The God can only be seen in the form of an arm and the crook he holds. The offering table between them holds a vase and two loaves. The underside of the frament appears to have rough inscriptions like some kind of practice work. 2002.98.0246.jpg
E.62.4 A small limestone tablet with the image of a monkey holding its young. It is square in shape although this appears to because the adult monkey's head has been removed. There is a hole in the centre at the top of the artefact presumably so it could be hung up. The adult monkey is bending it's knees to reduce its height which also gives the idea of closeness between the two creatures. The underside of the artefact has the same image only in reverse and with less detail. There is red pigment remaining on both sides around the feet particularly. 2002.98.0241.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. 2011.03.0030.jpg

TEMP.2003.7.2 Interior white with a pattern of brown waves set in between sets of two thin yellow lines which begin .2 below the rim. There is a small bit of brown that seems to be part of some other pattern at the bottom of the fragment. Interior is brown/black with remnants of a white fan or floral pattern, which is heavily worn. A good deal of the interior is worn down to the original terracotta.
TEMP.2003.7.32 Small figurine, possibly an animal. Pinkish colour, with remnants of black paint on the back, on the left arm and on the main body. Appears to be scratching head with the right arm, and the feet are distinguishable from the legs because they are at an angle.
TEMP.2003.7.64 Fragment from the neck of a closed shape, with a flat, thick rim (1.4cm). Flat, top of rim seems to have been painted white. The side of the rim has a pattern around it. 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.

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.
