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.

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.
45.10.20 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
45.10.5 Interior surface is black with a medallion, with meander pattern around the edge and two youths facing each other in the centre. The handles are missing from the exterior surface but there are palmette patterns on opposite sides, suggesting this is where the handles were originally. On one side is a stele with a youth either side, the left with his hands outstretched and the other holding a cloth and a strigil. The other side shows remains of a very similar picture. 2011.98.0041.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 interior of both pieces is black. The feet have a black band on the side (ca 2 cm below their joining part to the body) and the rest of the surface is left reserved, apart from a black line at the rim. Half way up the inside surface of the feet there is a thin, black band. The base's central part is decorated with a broad black, circular band between thin black lines. 2003.94.0098.jpg
45.10.9 A: Draped youth playing pipes and draped man holding a branch; B: group, probably in a procession, including a draped youth with a staff and a draped man with a branch.

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

79.1.5 Single band incision along the handle, both on the top side and the underside. A band across the handle at the highest point which does not reach all the way around the handle but does have an incision along it. 2005.01.0336.jpg
84.8.3 Amphora stamp. Stamp rectangular and takes up most part of the handle. Letters are still visible but worn. Small hole in break of handle. 2004.56.0001.jpg
91.11.3 Shape similar to 91.11.1, but bottom flare more cushion-shaped. Mouth slightly flared out, narrow flat rim, off centre. Lengthwise striations in glass, some rivesting(?). Iridescent transparent glass, some blackening near top of neck. Sligh incrustati 2005.02.0226.jpg
E.2003.9.1 The jar has a small but quite pronounced neck leading to an ovoid body that descends to the pointed base. One part of the body is flattened. 2002.98.0036.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.23.60 The beads are varying in colour but the prominant colour is green. The string the beads are on is actually too long for the beads so it likely not the original string suggesting that these beads were probably not all worn together. 2002.98.0235.jpg
E.62.1 Curved round on the outer surface on the rims. Colour is mainly white but has naturally occurring veins of colour. Very smooth interior surface.
E.62.57 Long, curved trowl, reaching two small handles on either end. Between these two is a third handle with a hole indicating it was once attatched to something else. The curved edge was clearly quite sharp but has since dulled. 2005.02.0148.jpg
E.65.17 Amulet shaped like the Ibis bird. The details are unclear but it is apparent that the neck cranes down so that the head sits on the body. The hole for threading is attatched to the neck. The whole bird sits on a flat base. 2002.98.0948.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.11 Exterior decorated with vertical black/brown bands. Both handles are coloured brown on the outer parts, but reserved inside. The base is decorated with a black band on its exterior. On the interior of the rim is a broad black band, then a red band. The design in the tondo shows two ears of grain on either side of a red rosebud on a stem (or a lotos, according to the authors of Corinth 15.3).
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. Below the handles are three thin black bands. The top of the foot and a thick band above it are black, but resting surface and base are reserved. DSCN0192.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.23 Handles all black. Mouth has wide rim, inside is all black but streaky. Reserved band under rim. Design is similar both sides and shows a woman's head facing left with ornate head dress and jewellry on in white and yellow added paint. Under handles on body is a red block between white lines with dots down originally. Stem is long and has a moulded band around centre. Foot has three steps all black (faded to red). Base is also stepped inside but reserved.
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:1935.87.3 Black inside, outside and rim. Handle is black all over as is top half of neck. Lower half of neck has an umbrella pattern with 12 tongues on top. Large palmette with tendrils under handle on body and tendrils either side of scene. Scene is a woman standing, facing right, holding mirror in right hand and a box in left looking at seated Eros who is holding a mirror in his right hand. Added yellow over white, and white on Eros's wings, mirrors, box and headresses. Traces of miltos. Reserved band beneath scene. Black foot but reserved resting surface and base. (Modern) red cross drawn on base.
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:1935.87.4 Mouth is black just inside rim but interior walls are reserved. The handle is black all over as is back of neck and back of body. On neck at the front is a wave pattern which forms the horizontal part of a reserved outline to the picture. Within this box is a woman with flowing robes, facing to the right holding a wreath in her right hand and a plate / tray in her left. Tendril pattern to her right at bottom of picture and a rosette in the field. Added white to bracelets, head dress and rosette. Foot was originally black outside with reserved resting surface and flat base.
REDMG:1935.87.7 Mouth is blacked just inside rim, leaving interior walls reserved. Handle, back of neck, and back of body are all black. Wave pattern on neck forms upper part of a reserved frame around a figural scene. This scene depicts a horned youth, running to right but facing profile to left, with cloak over his left arm, carrying a tray in his right hand. Tendrils each side of him emerge from the base and four rosettes and one fillet are in the field. Added white and yellow on horns, rosettes, tray and head dress. Foot is black on outside and the base is reserved.
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.

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. 2003.94.0080.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. 2004.99.0808.jpg
REDMG:1951.141 Black on interior except for a reserved band just below the lip. Black on exterior, except for a frieze of tongues underneath the rim on both sides, but not above handles; figural scenes on body. A: Partridge profile to the left; tendrils in lower left field; circle and tendrils in upper right field. 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.
REDMG:1951.147.1 Entirely black, except reserved on the inside of the spout and the underside including resting surface, and red figure decoration: line at middle of neck; ray band at lowest part of neck, above dots; figural scene between two sideways palmettes, enclosed, from the outside bottom of each emerges tendrils; short ray band at interior of lower handle attachment; 10-leaf palmette at exterior of lower handle attachment; flange decorated with egg-and-dot band, beneath a black line; the sides are decorated with an ivy design, effected through incision (tendrils) and added white (leaves). Reserved line band just below join of body and foot. The figural scene on the shoulder depicts seated youth seated profile to the right, facing a woman, seated profile to the right, but turning profile to the left. The youth, nude except for a hairband, sits on drapery, alongside which he hangs his left arm, and reaches a wreath, held in his left hand, towards the woman; she, wearing a crenellated stephane and a belted chiton, is seated perhaps on a cushion (comprised of dots), helds her right arm, slightly lowered, towards the wreath, and holds a box in her slightly raised left hand. A four-petal rosette is beneath her right arm. 2005.99.0048.jpg
REDMG:1951.150.1 Black except for decorative bands and figural scene on either side, and reserved band at lowest part of foot, as well as reserved underside. Neck decorated on either side with a laurel band, between two reserved bands. Beneath figural scenes are decorative bands, comprised of stopt maeanders (3) alternating with saltire squares (1). A: A female figure, juggling 8 eggs and advancing profile to right, faces a youth, advancing in 3/4-view to the right, but turning his head profile to the left. The woman, wearing a sakkos, tear-drop earring, beaded necklace, belted, sleeveless chiton, and two bracelets on each arm. The youth, nude except for a wreath around his head and a chlamys slung over his left arm, holds a large palm frond in his left hand and a phiale, at waist level, in his right hand. Above the phiale are 7 eggs (slightly smaller than those juggled by the woman). Bull’s eye (above) and tendril (below) in field between them. B: Two draped youths, face each other in conversation; between them a window (above) and a stele (below); the figure on the right supports himself on a staff that he holds in his right hand. Added white and goldish-yellow on side A, for jewelry, balls, phiale, wreath, and vegetation. The saltire square have short lines in place of dots. The right-most saltire square on A is replaced with a box of vertical lines. 2005.99.0161.jpg

REDMG:1953.25.63 Interior reserved. Thin neck and lipped mouth. Dipped in black gloss, but lower part of body and flaring foot are reserved.
REDMG:1953.25.74 Coarse material. Very shallow plate. Inside are traces of orange and brown deposits. Incised band inside rim and maybe around base too. Surface is not flat but has small lumps, perhaps caused by inclusions. Base is flat. Reserved. 2003.93.0170.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.81 The piece consists of half of a foot, which is broken about halfway down its length. The half remaining includes all five toes, with slightly curling little toes and a rather stumpy big toe. The foot sits upon a thick sandal. Under this is a chunk of unworked marble, presumably part of the original base of the statue, which takes up about the same amount of mass as the carved foot does. This underside is rough and worn. The break halfway through the foot in fairly clean, leaving a rough, but planar surface. 2002.97.0588.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.85 Top is flat and squared off. Groove below rim then the rim is diagonal, rounded ridge at base. Large flat section with design sculpted on top of it so it is in relief. Scene is of a griffin, a winged creature with bird head and lion-like paws. The ribs are clearly visible as are the lines in the wings. Front left paw is raised above a stick with snakes (?) curled around or a decorative branch (?). Below is a higher moulded ridge with raised egg and dot pattern beneath, before another moulded ridge. Bottom is flat but has diagonal scratches carved in - perhaps to help this section adhere to whatever it was originally part of. Many inclusions in material. 2005.90.0042.jpg
REDMG:1964.1606 Shallow groove around the filling hole. Concentric circles on the base, but off centre. Red wash all over the exterior and interior. 2005.01.0324.jpg
REDMG:1964.1615.1 Moulded decoration around the shoulder from outside in; a depressed ring, three bands of raised dots, (all three disturbed by the handle, one disturbed by the nozzle) a raised moulding of sets of three lines radiating in a band, a moulded ring surrounding the discus.

REDMG:1964.1630 Traces of glaze indicate that the entire surface was glazed black, but fired red in places, especially towards the bottom.
REDMG:1964.1635.1 Handle, rim and part of body remain. Handle is circular and curved. The inside has traces of thin and faded red strokes. Exterior surface was black but only traces remain on rim and around one side of handle. 2006.20.0510.jpg
REDMG:1964.1642.1 Circular, horizontal handle attached to rim of a cup or skyphos. Thin material. Traces of black colouring suggesting a black glaze. Handle is not moulded out of, but stuck on to, the body of the object. 2003.93.0371.jpg
REDMG:1964.1645.1 Handle, rim and part of body remaining. Interior surface appears to have been black but is now worn back to clay. Handle is oval, rounded and was painted black. Body part appears to have been unevenly painted/fired leaving areas reserved. 2006.20.0508.jpg
REDMG:1964.1651.1 Reserved all over outer surface. Thin stem down to flaring foot. Base is damaged but appears to have been flat. Moulded bands on body - deliberate or as a result of production (?) 2003.93.0160.jpg
REDMG:1964.1657.1 Foot reserved. Going up the stem the object becomes first narrower but then starts to widen out again reaching the widest area around the shoulders of the object. The body then becomes narrow again until reaches the rim of the mouth. A black gloss has been applied to the upper three quarters of the body including the rim and mouth. Dipped, lower part of body reserved. Bottom sloping obliquely, so that it can not stand. 2003.97.0927.jpg
REDMG:1964.1680.1 Possibly the base of a handle where it joins the object (?) Reserved on both sides but the outer surface has a build up of deposits. Small section of pot attached making it hard to distinguish a shape.
REDMG:1964.1684.1 Three pieces belonging to same object but not adjoinng. All reserved. One piece has a small pinched handle attached. All pieces have a rim, suggesting the original object had a lid. 2006.20.0272.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. The material is thick and dark in colour. 2006.20.0502.jpg
REDMG:1964.1698.1 Wide mouth with curved rim and a curved rim around neck. Curved handle joins top of neck and shoulder. Globular body. Small foot with raised base underneath. Unsure of colour - possibly was glazed but reserved (?). Dark colour present now appears to be deposits rather than paint. 2003.93.0186.jpg
REDMG:1964.1705.1 Flaring lip tapering to straight cylindrical neck. Two small round vertical handles (string-holes) at base of neck, joining almost spherical body. Black slip but fired red on the base. Some incised decoration representing segments, with dotted infill. 2008.99.0182.jpg
REDMG:1964.1711.1 Coarse clay with many inclusions making it rough. Simplistic design. Colours vary but are not painted and object is reserved all over. Sides are uneven. White deposits on outside toward base. 2003.93.0188.jpg
REDMG:1964.1712.1 Entirely reserved. Coarse material made worse by deposits. Thin sides to deep and wide body. Base appeared to have been flat but know has deposits. No handles exist. 2003.93.0182.jpg
REDMG:1997.209.4 Mouth black on inside, with reserved lip, black exterior; outer part of handle black but otherwise reserved; shoulder reserved with band of dots above a band of rays reaching to the carination. Body: band of fat palmettes, decorated with slender white lines arcing over the the palmettes, and incisions, alternating with long lotus petals, above a 'cable'; black band; reserved band; black zone in lowest part of body and upper part of foot; lower part of foot and underside reserved. 2004.99.0919.jpg
TEMP.2002.7.1 Bowl with two handles, the rim has a black band around the top which goes both inside and outside the bowl. Below this on the inside, is a very thick black band that stops to leave an empty circle in the centre of the bowl. 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
TEMP.2002.9.2 Larger piece (1) is made of three fragments and shows the top of the front panel with a pattern of horizontal palmettes with dots in field above a scene of a woman, with head covered, facing a youth wearing a long tunic and holding a long stick (?). 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.2002.9.27 Almost flat but with no finished edges. Underside reserved and topside has a red zigzag pattern with transverse bars between lines. There are three rows of zigzag on this fragment. 2007.03.1230.jpg
TEMP.2002.9.29 Fragment including section of rim. Rim has a flat top and is hardly offset at all. Interior surface is black. The exterior surface has black bars on the rim then a black band below with a panel of vertical bars next to a panel of three horizontal zigzags with a final band below. Below this but mainly missing at fracture are two narrown bands. 2007.03.1226.jpg
TEMP.2003.2.4 It apppears to be a figurehead. Originally made from a pink coloured clay but much of it has worn away.
TEMP.2003.6.10 All of the fragments bear part of the same decoration: the interior surface is glossy black as are the side surfaces of the foot (both on the exterior and interior), apart from a reserved (but glazed line) on the resting surface. The base is glazed so that it appears yellowish-brown and is decorated with four concentric circles and a dot at the central part of the base. 2006.20.0670.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.12 The internal surface of all the fragments is black. External: a) The rim is black, however,it appears red on an area. The back of the handle is black (the inner surface is reserved), but the area between the two parts of the handle creates a horizontal, reserved band. Below that, there is part of a black band and part of a reserved area. b) the rim is black. Below, on the left, there is part of a wavy? vertical black band, while on the right there are two small, black spots, parts of a motif. c) There is part of the black band that decorates the rim. d) There is a black band on a reserved area and part of a motif that resembles a ribbon? below which spring thin lines. 2006.20.0466.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.14 The two fragments bear part of the same decoration, apart from the parts of two lines in added red on top of a (which is preserved higher than b). There is a large black area below which there are two lines in added red. Underneath, there is the upper part of a radial-shaped motif on a reserved, but glazed, surface. 2006.20.0605.jpg
TEMP.2003.6.17 The interior of the vessel is black apart from the lowest part of o, whose lower part bears a reserved but glazed line. Exterior: a) On the right side, there is the upper part of a seated woman (part below her waist is missing). She is draped and wears a stephane (fillet) on her head. On the left side there is a floral motif whose stem is a wavy line that expands to the left. b) There is the back side of another seated draped female figure. c) The front side of the previous female figure. She is holding an alabastron with both her hands. d) On the lower left part there is the largest part of a voluted palmette with petal shaped divisions, connected with a tendril. The area next to the spring of the one part of the handle is reserved. e) On the bottom right there is the rest of the previous palmette, also connected with a tendril. f) On the bottom right there is the upper part of a palmette and on the upper left there is part of a tendril's volute. The area on the left of teh one spring of the handle is reserved, but glazed (plaster on top). g) Uneven black surface. h) A small part of the volute of the tendril of f and the stalk of a flower. i) Part of an inverted palmette, connceted with (part of ) a tendril, with (occasional) leaves on its sides. j) Small line, part of a tendril. k) Part of a tendril's volute. l) A figure's projected forearm and hand (figure's depicted on n?). m) On the right side, there is the stalk and part of the stem of a flower and a line that seems to be part of a tendril. n) Part (head missing, neck and shoulder are scraped off, area below the knees missing) of a draped standing figure that has the left hand around the waist. o) The lowest part of a figure's drapery.
TEMP.2003.6.3 (a) The handle is black, but the piece of the body that is preserved is a reserved, but glazed surface with very thin, parallel lines.
