2007.10.2.235 Two figures, both facing towards us, one standing behind the other. The one on the foreground is a warrior, possibly a Greek soldier (because he's naked) carrying a spear and shield and wearing a helmet. Behind him is a fully clothed figure, possibly a goddess.
2007.10.2.236 A powerfully built male figure kneeling with one arm (right) raised, his hand making a fist. The other arm is lowered and appears to bound (possibly) behind his back. His head is bowed. The figure appears to have a small winged figure upon his back. It is not clear if he is carrying the second figure or if there is some sort of struggle in process.
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.

2007.10.2.295 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.
2007.10.2.304 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.

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.
