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?).

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.
45.10.14.2 Interior: The rim is reserved and the neck is black. Exterior: There is a red line on the plastic ring that joins the rim with the neck. Neck: There is a black line, below which, on the left of the fragment, there is the right part of a fan-shaped? palmette (three, short divisions and a rectangular central part, the details rendered with incisions). On the right, there is part of a floral motif: part of a petal (vertical) and part of another one (horizontal). 2006.20.0626.jpg
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?). 2008.98.0366.jpg

45.10.7A-B Lid: The top surface bears part of a central medallion (dots contoured by double, semi-spherical line), encircled by a black line, a red band, a broader black band and a red line. There is also an ivy spray between the last red line and a similar one. At the rim there is a rather careless tongue pattern, with inner dots (identical to the one of the central medallion, only frammed by thin, black lines). Sides: There is the representation of women pursued by the winged Eros. The naked Eros is flying and his himation with white spots on its top is falling over his forearm. At the level of his face there is an inscription, with white colour KALOS and underneath, KALH, above a bent fillet with thin, short, white lines emerging from its endings. The first of the women is headed right, having extended her right? hand towards Eros and holding and raising slightly her drapery (in order to run faster). Her head is missing, but she is probably looking backwards, to see the advancing Eros. The scene is reproduced again: Anoher Eros pursues another woman, who is running towards an altar? (rectangular, altar-shaped constuction, higher than the figures with a decoration of a large cross and dots in between). Among them there is again the inscribed KALOS, KALH. Many fragments have not survived, however this woman's head is not missing. She is looking backwards and wears a diadema, made of white lines. At the other side of the altar? there is another woman approaching it, having escaped the first Eros, but looking back to see him. She wears a white diadema and the same inscription is between her and the Eros. The scene is framed by two red, concentric lines (above and below the figures). The bottom surface is left reserved. Body: There is decoration of laurel stems and berries around the outer surface with details made of added white. This motif is framed (above and below with red, thick lines).

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.

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

Side B: A youth in himation holding two spears (?) of which heads are not visible, being too tall for space avaliable. The detail on both figures is picked out in black paint. Two ruddled bands run around base of pot below figures. Foot is black on top and side and inside foot ring; resting surface and underside reserved. Base is ruddled and has three black bands and a central black dot. 2008.99.0717.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. 2002.97.0210.jpg

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

E.23.10 Dense with a small base below a trapazoidal shape. The natural black remains only on the base. 2002.98.0109.jpg
E.23.11 Straight base below a trapezoid shape (slightly better defined than E.23.10). Now grey in colour all over. 2002.98.0110.jpg
E.23.2 Funerary stele with vulture wings surrounding the solar disk, common during the time period. Below the wings is the text of the stele, surviving intact. Two men are depicted adoring the god Re-Horakhty, whose presence is indicated not only by the uraeus and sun disk but also his name inscribed in the text. It has been suggested that the dress of the figures indicates that they are Nubians; this is confirmed by the oddity of their personal names. The sky is depicted above the winged disk, each end being supported by the symbol of the west (on the left, only the top of the feather survives) and the east (on the right, more or less complete). A signature, possibly belonging to Flinders Petrie has been found above the head of the right hand figure. There is only one viable interpretation possible, when one combines the depictions with the details found within the text. The stele depicts the man Serep and his son Tkr-Irt-Hrw, not as has been assumed Serep with his Ka. A personal Ka has no need of the title m33 khrw, which is a title of the deceased, thus two deceased are depicted. There is no question that Serep is a man as he is depicted in male dress and has the male symbol after his name. There is enough evidence to show that the stele was once painted. Red pigment on the sun disk of the god is the most apparent, though a similar (if not the same) is found in several of the hieroglyphics and on the deceased as well as faint traces on the column to the right. A yellow stain remains in the first two columns, which could be remains of the paint used to fill in the columns. The combination of colours matches well with the red pigment found in the glyphs. 2007.99.0044.jpg
E.23.4 Inscribed band marking line of shoulder, three uneven lines around middle possibly created by string. Darker areas on the body denote a possible pattern/picture that has now warn away. Below this are four circular, grey patches with darker centres. 2002.98.0067.jpg
E.62.14 Decoration in mauve pigment, consisting of two curved lines below five triangles that originate from the edge of the fragment.
E.62.5 There is a small band of carved / incised detail at the thickest end. Carving is a simple cross-hatch pattern with three carved bands above and below; the pattern extends below the bottom bands, perhaps by mistake.
E.63.13C Blue glaze fragment, once the lip of a flat dish or bowl. The top of the bowl was apparently decorated with two sculpted concentric lines, one following the lip of the bowl one just below. The interior is flat. 2002.98.0954.jpg
E.63.15 Below the uraeus there is a small amount of blue under this, below the chin, on the neck and around the groin, where it is quite faded. The eyes still hold a gold pigment. 2007.01.0108.jpg
E.63.2 Sacred eye of the god Horus, originally blue. There is a hole drilled horizontally through the middle of the piece to allow threading. The details are carved into the piece, the top is a line of slightly diagonal lines, below this is a small flat line below this the detail of the actual eye which is common to all sacred eye amulets. 2002.98.0947.jpg
E.63.9 Light green pendant. The image is the goddess of Hathor, goddess of music and dance. Here she is depicted in the form of a highly stylized cow. At the top of the pendant is a loop for threading. The pendant is flat and has the cow-head engraved in the centre with an arch of concentric lines above the head Below the head on either side are parallel vertical lines divided by one horizontal line on both sides. 2002.98.0219.jpg

REDMG:1935.87.19 Traces of four (?) bands on mouth and three lines on handle. Tongues on shoulder with two bands below. Main design (starting from below handle going left to right) a human (?) figure on a horse facing right, a lion biting the foot of a warrior who is defending himself with shield, a large creature (possibly a panther), and a man. These pictures are all incised. Dots and rosettes incised with asterisks in field. Five bands around base.
REDMG:1935.87.2 Inside of mouth and exterior of rim black, while lip is reserved. Body is mostly reserved. Handles are black on the outside, and reserved on the insides.

REDMG:1935.87.25 Black except for the figural design, with friezes above and below it; reserved but ruddled resting surface. A. Horizontal friezes on neck and below figural scene, consist of two vertical bars alternating with circles, reserved bands above and below. Scene: nude satyr, standing profile to right, with his left foot raised on a rock, faces a draped woman, seated 3/4-view to right, with her head turned profile to left. He raises his right hand towards her, and rests his left arm on his knee. She holds a mirror in her upraised left hand. Five ivy leaves in field between them. B. Horizontal friezes on neck and below figural scene consist of chevrons to left, between reserved bands. Scene: Two draped youths in conversation, face each other on either side of a stele. Yellow and white details: white fillet on satyr, bracelets and necklace on woman, and spots on the mirroron Red wash on reserved areas suggests imitation of Attic red figure. A pair of incised lines run horizontally across side A, and another line runs horizontally across side B; further incised lines around the upper body of the woman indicate that these might be an artist’s guidelines. 2005.89.0068.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.31A Red rim; two handles, coloured black. In the handle zone pomegranate pattern in three rows, the middle row red; below, one red line between two black; a broad black band with a pair of superimposed red lines at top and bottom; one red line an done black immediately above foot. Foot-ring black outside, two black rings on resting surface; inside of foot-ring red; on the bottom a central dot and pair of small thin rings, near the circumference a broad ring, all black. The edge of the flange supporting the lid, red. Handles black. Inside of bowl originally black with traces of one pair of red circles. 2003.97.0279.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.31B Lid: on the rim of the knob, black silhouetted triangles pointing outwards; below teh knob, black rays; four circles, the second and fourth red; round the edge below the animal zone a black band between two black lines; on the vertical rim a red band, and again a black band between lines. In the animal zone, on one side a palmette-lotus complex, flanked by a pair of sirens; on the other a siren flanked by a panther on the left and a lion on the right. Small incised circles on the body of teh panther, incisions on the lion. Field ornaments include rings of dots with or without a circle at the centre, scattered dots, amorphous and cruciform rosettes with incisions crossing at centre, rosettes with incisions forming small arcs facing away from the center. Some remains of added red on neck, breast, and tail of sphinxes, heart of palmette and petals of lotus. Inside of lid reserved. 2003.97.0277.jpg
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
REDMG:1935.87.8 Inside is black with no reserved sections. Outside is black with a groove just below rim and another two at top of stem. Foot is flat and black on the top but reserved on the side.

Below the body zone, around the entire vase, is a decorative band consisting of dotted cross squares (1) alternating with stopt maeanders to left (3) between two reserved bands; black below. Scene, A: A woman, standing in 3/4-view to the right, with head profile to right, hair emerging from the back, a sleeveless, belted chiton, a himation draped over her left arm, a pair of white slippers, holds a palmette fan, with white detail, in her upraised left hand, and a branch (similar to a thyrsos) in her left hand, at a diagonal. She also wears a white stephane and a sakkos with black and white detail, from the back of which emerges a tuft of hair, a white beaded necklace between two thin chains (rendered by black lines), and white snake bracelets on each arm. She faces a naiskos enclosure, decorated in gilded white, with thin Corinthian columns and a black pediment, on a podium decorated with a simple continuous maeander to right, between a two pairs of white lines. Enclosed within the naiskos is a warrior, rendered in white with yellow details, seated in 3/4-view to the left, on a himation, with his legs crossed, and his left elbow resting on the back of his seat. He holds a crested helmet in 3/4-view to the right, at which he stares, and a diagonal spear in his left hand. On the ground below him is a small shield. To the right is a nude youth, standing in a reclining pose, 3/4-view to the left, wearing a white fillet in his hair, and white slippers. He holds a himation, bundled up around his left arm, and an opened box as well as a dotted, fringed sash, in his right hand. A thin rectangular element, perhaps a dagger, emerges from the opened box. A (heart shaped) ivy leaf hangs in the field above him. White dotted lines indicate the groundline between all figures. Details on the shoulder rays and, ornaments in the field, and all figural scenes are rendered in added white, sometimes 'gilded' with yellow wash. 2005.90.0016.jpg
REDMG:1951.130.1 Black band on interior, reaching to ca. 1.0 cm. below the lip; black neck and handle. Shoulder: reserved tongues, alternatively red and black at centre, on a black band (tongues extend partly over the upper ridge, on the right side). Body: komos comprised of eight nude male dancers with purple hair and incisions delineating hair, eyes, muscular and other bodily details; under handle, black column krater (decorated with two incised lines on shoulder, purple band and incised rays band between incised lines on body); in field between dancers, seven rosettes with single or double incised central circle and incised petals. Below, broad black band between two black lines; black rays emerge from base. Foot black on exterior, otherwise reserved. 2004.99.0353.jpg
REDMG:1951.131.1 Black rim and neck, except for a thin reserved band just above the join with the body; body decorated with three reserved bands above an egg-and-dot band and another reserved band; row of white dots at top of figural scene. Below, band comprised of stopt maeanders (3) alternating with cross-in-square (1), between two reserved bands; broad reserved band at join of body and foot; reserved band on lowest ridge of foot as well as resting surface and underside. A: A draped woman runs in 3/4-view to the right but looks back, profile the left. She holds in her lowered right hand a wreath from which a garland hangs and in her upraised left hand a box (decorated with bands, chevrons, and zigzags, as well as white dots above the box), while drapery falls over her left arm. She wears a stephane and a kekryphylon with dangling ribbons, beaded earrings and double necklace (indicated by white dots), double bracelets on each wrist, a belted, sleeveless chiton, and slippers. In the field are a fillet (upper left), a rosette with five white dotted petals and a yellow centre (upper right), and a shrub with berries (lower centre), as well as a white dotted groundline rising slightly to the right. B: Eros, holding a beaded necklace in his extended right hand, is seated in 3/4-view to the left on a flower. The leaves and buds of the same plant elaborately fill the field beneath and around him. He wears attributes that are similar to those of the woman on A: stephane, kekryphylon, earring, double beaded necklace, double bracelets, and slippers. He also wears a beaded baldric diagonally across his chest and ankle bracelets (3 on each ankle) and a baldric comprised of a row of white dots arranged diagonally across his chest, over his left shoulder. Added white is used for details of Eros' wings as well as the jewelry, box decoration, slippers, vegetation and groundlines, as well as the centre parts of the eggs on the egg-and-dot band. 2003.93.0379.jpg
REDMG:1951.134.1 Black interior and handle; beneath each handle a palmette, flanked by tendrils; on each side a wave band, to right, above a woman's head, profile to left, surrounded by tendrils. Banded decoration below is comprised of a reserved band just below the figural scene, a pair of red bands above the foot, a red band on the upper surface of the foot, and reserved area at the centre of the underside. The common use of red stain to effect a red (ruddled) surface on reserved areas is highlighted in this example by the almost complete loss of black glaze towards the foot, where the ruddled intervening bands strongly contrast with the buff/reserved (formerly black glazed) areas. 2004.99.0768.jpg
REDMG:1951.135.1-2 Pyxis: Black band on lip and at top of handles, black rays (between handles) on shoulder; broad black band between lines, carelessly applied, at widest part; narrower black band below. Lid: Black on vertical part of knob and concentric band on lid, around knob. 2004.99.0428.jpg

On top of lid, two female heads, each wearing a sakkos, one with a spiked stephane, profile to left, between palmettes. More tendrils and vegetal ornament, emerge from the palmettes. Wave to right, around lip. Added colour only for stephane. 2004.99.0655.jpg
REDMG:1951.140.1 Upper surface of rim reserved, black ridge, and outer edge of lip decorated with a wave pattern to right; black below lip, on neck and on handles except forward handle attachments (on horizontal handles) decorated with rays; reserved patches beneath horizontal handles. 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. She extends her right hand to the bird and holds a box, decorated on the sides with black spots and lines, and three white spots on top, in her slightly upraised right hand. Above the bird is a rectangular frame (sometimes called a window but perhaps a votive plaque); above the box is a cogwheel. Most of the reserved areas are darkened with red wash, and the jewelry and other details in added white. 2004.99.0810.jpg

B: Satyr head, profile to left; tendrils in lower left and right fields; quarter palmette in upper left field; single palm leaf in upper right field. Although female heads are more popular in such contexts, the large red element in place of the ear is probably a horn and indicates that this is a representation of a satyr. The decoration in the lower left field of the B side indicates the addition of a second layer of black glaze, in a manner than changes the image (from a large tendril to a small tendril below an L-shaped element.

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:1964.1688.1 Slightly curved from left to right and curved from top to bottom, becoming steeper towards bottom of fragment. This suggests that the fragment may have belonged to a cup of some description which has straight rim and a sloping body (?) Fragment has the rim of the object. The rim is black and flat on the top. On the interior surface is a black band below rim, red, broad band, thin black band and red again. The exterior surface appears to have been black all over but faded to red.

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
REDMG:2004.98.1 Black on interior and exterior of mouth; reserved upper lip; restored neck; handle black on exterior; shoulder: band of vertical bars above black rays pointing toward the carination.

The handles begin about an inch below the rim on the outside of the bowl, but curve up and out to finish roughly on level with the rim. They are painted with black glaze only on the underside. Above the base of the handles there is a subtle ridge, below which there are three lines of pattern, which look like petals. Below these, there is a thin black band, a small space, and then a thick black band which goes down to the ridge of the foot. The foot itself appears to consist of two flattish disks, the lower with a black band round it. On the bottom of the foot, there is another black band part way in, and then a smaller one with a black dot in the middle. 2002.97.0223.jpg

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.2002.9.26 Interior surface is black with a reserved band inside rim. Rim and part of body remain. Offset rim is painted black. The picture is of a bird (perhaps a swan ?) with wings outstretched and neck curved. Bird is facing left, towards a horizontal line of four black dots. Below is a black band.

TEMP.2003.6.24 Fragment of pot, including slight buldge where handle begins. Exterior, black lines on white background. At the right edge of the top there is a triangluar bit of black that looks like it originally belonged to a square surrounded on both verticle sides by twin sets of thin brown verticle lines. Less than 1 from the top there are two brown lines that follow the curve of the jug horizontally spaced .3 apart. Under these lines on the left is a large2.5 hieght figure eight pattern made up of three lines that swirl around to create the eight, with little v's on the outside of the eight pointed away from where the figure eight lines cross.
