2002.9.5 A reconstruction of a kithara. Similarly to the barbitos, wooden frame with a horizontal bar resting across the top to which the seven strings are attached. Ornate carving and curls down each side. The lower part is a thicker section of wood with a bridge (as on our stringed instruments of today) to hold the strings taught. Zig zag carving at base for decoration and a red ribbon for the musician to hold attached to bottom right. 2007.99.0175.jpg
2006.12.83 Carving of detail of female face with hair band, details worn 2007.03.1084.jpg
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.
