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.
2007.10.2.311 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?).

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
