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. On the right side, two bworn/black lines curve around where the handle would have begun. The handle section is all black, although chipped. Under the figure eight is a .6 thick black lines running horizontally around the pot, broken by a thin pink line a little below the middle. there are two other thin pink lines equidistant from this first one, one above and one below it by about .4, the top pink line being right above the top of the black line. Underneith the bottom pink line is a segment of a different pattern. Interior is black over pink and white, which is worn away enough in many parts to see the pink and white colors. two thin and faded white lines form bands near the top.
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). Details of the horses have been rendered with incisions. c) The rim is black, however the black colour is uneven and leaves part of the right edge of the fragment's rim reserved. Underneath a thin, reserved line, there is a palmette and next to it part of the line that contoured the spring of the handle. d) The rim is black. Below, there is a female figure's head and in front of her (at the level of her face) there is part of a curving branch, with dots on either side (part of wreath?). e) Part of a palmette, a black line and a black band. f) There is a dot in the middle of the resting surface, contoured by a circle. There is also part of a wide, band, between thin lines, above which, there is a graffito? in the shape of X. 2006.20.0464.jpg
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. On the right side there is the largest part of a palmette (round center, rendered with added red and petal-shaped divisions). 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. The upper is round and the details are rendered with incisions and added red, the middle part is a small dotted branch and the lowest part is a short, vertical, thin band (thyrsos?). From its middle part emerges another dotted branch. There are five large dots on the background. On the right side of the fragment there is the left part (small part) of a figure? (carelessly rendered). f) The part of the lowest body that is preserved bears the terminations of palmettes? depicted on the body (short, clumsily rendered bands are preserved). There is also a reserved thin line between two broad brown bands. The foot is also brown and so is the inner sude surface of the foot. The rest is reserved, with the exception of five thin, concentric circles on the base. g) The fragment bears the lowest part of a palmette (the left volute and part of the round center)on the left and part of the reserved area between the two brown bands.
TEMP.2003.6.9 Rim section of a bowl. Exterior white with a band consisting of twin brown lines with alternating black and white rectangles interior along the top .3. There are two small blueish sploches marring the otherwise well preserved surface. Interior is black over white. The white shows through in a line along the edge for about .2 and then there is a brown line, and under this the rest of the background is black. Near the top of this black section is a set of white lines with white dots set in between them at regular intervals. Under this pattern is another thin white line. Under this is on part of a triangle pattern consising of a white outlined triangle with a white line forming a second triangle within the first and a red dot at the center of the triangle.
TEMP.2003.7.1 The edge of the rim is painted with a small line of brown, which is fairly worn. Interior has a brown coat over white paint. The brown starts 0.2 below the rim. There is also a small red splotch near the edge of this side. Exterior is white.
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.2003.7.3 Exterior white with brown patterns. Following one edge abour 1.0 down is a set of faded brown lines. Between the edge and these brown lines on one side are five brown lines perpendicular to the two lines, while on the other is a single parallel brown line with 5 short perpendicular lines crossing. Below the two brown lines is a brown blob that looks like it may have once been a horses leg, but is nothing in particular now. Interior is brown.
TEMP.2003.7.4 Five sided fragment. Exterior white with a pattern of parallel brown curves that get increasingly shorter, creating a pie slice shape. Interior black with a red line alone one edge. Right above the red line is a white line. There are also a few other splotches of white.

One band has another smaller brown band (about twice as thin) running beside it throughout the fragment. The other band has a smiliar smaller band, but only measuring about a quarter of the length and running off into the edge. The "inner" convex side is painted dark brown with two white bands running lengthwise. One of the white bands is dashed, while the other is complete.
TEMP.2003.7.6 On the exterior is a light brown line, followed by a cream line, and another brown one, followed by a lighter brown one and brown dots on a cream background. Then another light brown line and more cream until a dark brown circular shape (unclear because the fragment ends here). On the other side the background is dark brown, almost black, with white lines, almost like petals, with light brown dots in them.
TEMP.2003.7.7 Fragment from the central part of a bowl. Interior brown, with three pairs of white lines beginning about 1.5 from the top, 3.0 from the top, and 4.0 from the top.
