Black glaze ciovering only on part of the interior and exterior of the bowl, an elongated semi circle. The bowl is possibly marked from something else or this could be a burn mark rather than remians of a black glaze. 2006.20.0165.jpg
45.6.40 Narrowly flarred lip, shallow with flat surface in the interior. Red circle at centre of interior. Flat resting surface, raised base, reserved. 2006.20.0043.jpg
45.8.1 The rim (interior) bears two, concentric circles, the first at the edge and the second at the curve between the neck and the body, where traces of white colour can be found. 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
46.9.2 Ivy wreath on rim, dots on ridge below. Decoration on main body consists of an ivy wreath with dots in between ivy leaves. Below: one band of horse shoes, one band of dots, and one band of curved lines. Below is black to the foot, which has one reserved line. Base reserved but with two thin black concentric lines around a small circle in the centre. 2003.19.0003.jpg
47.2.1 Black gloss, with a greenish band around body towards base. Reddened resting surface and underside, with a central black dot within a faint circle in diluted gloss, and the interior of the footring black. 2003.97.0563.jpg

47.2.4 The vessel's tondo is ornated with impressed (stamped) decoration, of thirteen ellipsoid motives (eggs, some not fully formed) that seem to be hanging from an impressed circle, on whose border rest thirteen palmettes (voluted with narrow divisions) on stalks. There is a reserved, but glazed line at the lowest part of the body and the concave area of the base is reserved, but glazed, apart from two, concentric, reddish brown lines with a dot in the centre. 2010.99.0180.jpg
47.2.5 Black glaze covers the entire vessel, except for underside of the resting surface. It is not lustrous, of not good quality and on the interior it is mostly fired reddish, as well as on small parts of the exterior. Reddish paint is applied on the underside, which is decorated with a black dot at the centre, surrounded by two concentric thin black band at a distance of ca. 1 cm. VEry close to the external band, a thin band of thinned glaze. The interior of the bidy is has stamped decoration. Four stamped spindly palmettes arround a small circle. 2008.98.0406.jpg
47.2.9 Black gloss covers the entire body, except for resting surface, and within ridge on underside. Underside is covered with red paint and further decorated on reserved area with dot at the centre, central circle, and two thinner concentric circles. Much of exterior misfired brownish. 2008.98.0431.jpg
47.8.1 Inside is reserved except for picture of Heracles in a black corselet over spotted chiton with flame borders. Club in his right hand and bow and arrow in his left. Originally only red for framing circle inside the black band around rim but much has faded to red that was black. Two handles, one either side have been dipped. Outside are dots around rim with band below. Reserved then to resting surface and inner foot-ring which are red. Base is concave and reserved except for small red circle at center. 2005.88.0039.jpg

50.12.30 Interior largely unpainted with thin black painted line directly on rim and below it a wider band. Exterior has a small motif that appears to join the rim slightly to the left with a single line and becomes a small circle and then from the base of the circle a line becomes a series of tight curves alternating with tiny dots. 2003.98.0229.jpg
50.12.43 Exterior decorated with concentric circles. In the centre there is a solid painted circle. The painted lines are more densely painted at the top. The lines at the bottom of the circle are painted further apart. The inside is brownish-black. 2003.98.0111.jpg
50.12.46 Interior undecorated. Exterior, two small circles painted, one inside the other on the upper edge, around these a circle of fine dots. The paint has faded to orange. 2003.98.0162.jpg
51.7.2 Lid: The centre of the top of the lid is reserved, surrounded by two concentric bands—one red, one reserved— then a red circle, from which a band of tongues radiates. This is surrounded by a scallopped black band (fired red on one side), then an inverse wave pattern (waves leaning to the right), and finally a reserved band. The outer edge of the flange and the upper part of the body are glazed black. The remainder of the body is decorated with an egg and dot band (for which each eggs is a thick u circumscribed with a thin u), then a black band, then a wave band (with waves leaning to the right). The lower rim is reserved. The interior is glazed black, misfired to red on the underside of the top. Pyxis: Entirely glazed, fired mostly black on the exterior (with some red patches on the flange and the top of the body), and red on the interior. 2003.92.0198.jpg
51.7.5 Interior reserved; black glaze on mouth and upper half of neck, as well as upper half of handle; lower part of neck decorated with tongues that suggest ribbing; shoulder decorated (except under handle) with an egg-and-dot frieze between two black lines; reserved space at lower part of handle and handle attachment (interior) suggest that the mouth and neck were dipped. Body decorated with a frieze consisting of 7 clusters of three white dots at the top of a figural scene (arranged in upside down triangle shapes): a female figure, standing in 3/4-view to the left, in a relaxed posture with her left leg crossing her right, and her left elbow resting on a pillar (the curvy element in added white suggests that this is meant to represent natural rock). She wears a hairband and kekrphylon on her head, triple-dot earrings, two or three necklaces (two strands of white beads beneath a black line), two white bracelets on each wrist; a belted sleeveless chiton, and white slippers. She holds, in her upraised right hand, a mirror surrounded by white dots, and, in her left hand, a phiale that is surrounded by white beads, as well as a beaded sash. A large palmette, with a white dot on the heart and white dots on each volute, fills the space beneath the handle. From each volute emerges tendrils and floral decoration that frame the image of the woman. A 6-petal rosette fills the space to the right of the woman; to her left are a window and a dotted circle (cog-wheel?) in the upper left field, and an olive branch in the lower left field. On the body, beneath the figural scene, are a single reserved band and a thicker black band. The foot is reserved on the top element, and glazed black on the ridge and lower element; the underside and resting surface are reserved. 2008.99.0557.jpg
53.8.3 Lip and interior glazed black, except a ram protome, profile to right, at the centre of a reserved tondo, outlined with an orange band. Exterior: lotus petals on the rim, interrupted only by the glazed handles and lugs, above a a thin glazed band at the carination (mostly orange-red), an invertedanimal frieze on the body or bowl, above a pair of thin bands above a thick band; bands decorating the foot on exterior and interior vertical surfaces; underside decorated with concentric circles (black between two lighter orange circles, enclosed by two darker orange circles). The animal frieze shows (from just above the black handle): a panther advancing to the right, head frontal, licking the horns of a grazing deer, profile to the left, between two pinecones, with a dotted line above his back; a panther advancing to the left, head turned frontal, a dotted lozenge, a lion advancing to the right, tongue licking the horns of a deer grazing profile to the left, with a row of chevrons above; a dotted lozenge. Below each creature is a dotted bull's eye (comprised of central dot, surrounded by a band, surrounded by a circle of dots). Additional ornaments, including dots and chevrons, in the field. 2010.98.0024.jpg

A fight of three warriors between onlookers; on the left, an onlooker between two runners, on the right, a runner between two onlookers and at the back a floral motif (lotus-palmette cross?): Two semi-spherical palmettes chained in the middle by circular bands, dotted in the centre, and held on a columnar motif with similar (only more conical) palmettes as endings (top and bottom) by black strips. Many of the figures appear to be holding spears (in the case of warriors) or have in front of them the same attribute (long, thin, vertical or diagonal lines). There are variations in the rendering of armour, hairstyles and drapery, mostly executed by incisions. The scene is framed by bands, top and bottom. Above the top band is a reserved circle, a thin, red, circular band and then the vessel is black up to the base where there is another red circular band. The interior of the footring is black. The broad, reserved base has a black circle inside a black band in the centre. Additionally, there are six dots (four are bigger) placed randomly on the reserved area of the bottom. Interior: The surface is black from the rim to the tondo, except for two, red, concentric bands approximately 1 cm within the carination, and a similar red band framing the tondo. Inside the tondo is a representaion of a cock in profile to the right with a flower-bud emerging in the background. Red paint: tail, wings. Moreover, incised over the red ring surrounding the tondo there is a mercantile graffito (?). The handles are black but reserved within. The underside of the foot decorated with black dot at the centre, surrounded by black band and 6 black dots around it, uncanonically placed 2003.95.0104.jpg
57.3.1 Clay pale, paint greyish brown: large closed vessel, interior unpainted. Exterior broad black line, and part of a circular spiral in black. One small faded black line in middle of fragment, a section of a semi circle to the left of the broad black line. 2003.98.0173.jpg
60.8.1 Reserved bands on lip and handle zones, heavy black line on lip and dividing the two zones. Handles reserved underneath. Interior black except for a reserved disk in the bottom with two concentric reddish circles inside, then two purple circles applied over black about half-way up, then another single circle just below lip. Reserved thin band on the top of the rim, in the interior. Exterior black beneath the two reserved bands, exterior of footring black, base reserved. 2009.07.0004.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
73.9.23 Fragment with both red and black on it. On the surface (depending which way up you hold it!?)On the left there is the edge of a curve with two black dots inside it, to the right of this is a vertical line. To the right of this line are what could be the edge of two big petals or leaves., in the centre of the first there is a dot and a line. Underneath all of these shapes is the edge of what seems to be a big circle in a red coloured gloss. The back of the fragment is covered in a black glaze that has come out as red in patches(?) 2002.97.0191.jpg
73.9.4 Figure of a dog or goat (head missing), stands under missing handle, bordered with spots. Behind the dog's tail, we can see the edge of a palmette. The figure of the dog stands on a black band, below this, there is the edge of a black circle. Rosette and palmette decoration. 2002.97.0214.jpg
73.9.6 A small fragment with possible figure of bird (front part and head missing) and above this, a circle design with a dot in the centre. The back of the fragment is covered in black glaze. 2002.97.0193.jpg
73.9.8 The rim, leading to a band on the ouside is black, as is the entire inside of the fragment. Below the band on the outside is a horizontal 'S' shape pattern with small dots above and below it. 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
74.7.2 Completely reserved plate. Inside at centre is a stamped design of six leaves, with vein detail, in a circle inside three grooved bands. More grooves towards sides of plate and on rim. Flat base with incised grooves on bottom. 2007.03.1292.jpg

83.9.31 One side of fragment is glazed black with a palmette design. Flowers are situated around a small, indented circle with six tiny indented 'U' shapes inside it. The other side of the fragment is mostly rserved, with a black band at the rounded part of the piece. Near the pointed part of the fragment there is an outer black circle, followed by a smaller black inner circle. Inside the inner circle there is a black dot. 2006.20.0139.jpg
83.9.32 On one side of fragment it is mostly terracotta with a small patch of black gloss, located on the end which is squared off. In, almost, the centre of this side there is a small, black circle with a tiny, black dot in the middle. On the other side of this fragment it is glazed black with a palmette design on. The flower pattern has a circle around half of it. This circle has 'U' shapes on it and appears as if it would have continued around the pot, from which the fragment came. 2006.20.0141.jpg
84.8.4 Amphora stamp. Round circular stamp, with words around the outside of the circle and a picture or symbol which is difficult to make out in the centre. Stamp is on lower part of handle. There is a small hole on the break of the handle. 2002.97.0619.jpg

E.62.16 A cubic dice, white in colour with numerical symbols etched on and then painted in black. On all bar one side the symbols are made up of one dot surrounded by two concentric circles, the number of these represents the value of that side. On two sides there are five, on two there are four and six on the fifth. The final side has twelve dots although on this side one symbol consists of one dot and one circle rather than two, also the dots are depicted in groups of twos. 2002.98.0256.jpg
E.62.8 Incised band two thirds of the way down toward centre of inside. At centre are two pairs of two incised lines with a single circle and a sunken dot incised in centre. 2005.88.0070.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

Below, broad black band between two black lines; black rays emerge from base. Foot black on exterior, otherwise reserved. 2004.99.0353.jpg
REDMG:1951.133.1 The surface is treated with a metallic black glaze, applied more casually (streaky) on the lower part of the body; reserved band just above foot and reserved (matte grey) underside except for a black concentric circle. There is a single incised concentric circle in the tondo. The iridescence and matte grey areas suggest that the lower part of the vase was (inadvertently?) exposed to (too much) heat, either in the factory or afterwards.
REDMG:1951.136.1 Upper surface of knob decorated with reserved (and reddened) band, black band on inset, cog-wheel on inset circle; lower part of knob and stem black except for a reserved (and reddened) band at the upper part of stem, and a reserved band where the stem meets the lid. The lid is decorated with two female heads, profile to left, between two palmettes. The females each wear a spiked stephane and a kekryphylon, earrings, and beaded necklace; cluster of three white dots in the field in front of each. Enclosed palmettes highlighted with white arcs at centre and white dots on either side of top leaf. Black wave around lip. Added colour (yellow on white) for details of jewelry. The underside is reserved. 2004.99.0633.jpg

Bird (partridge or pigeon) standing profile to right, towards a female head (Aphrodite), profile to left, wearing dotted spiked stephane, sakkos, and a pony tail, as well as white hoop earrings and a dotted necklace. Two dotted four-petal rosettes in field behind her. Scene flanked by two sets of tendrils from which emerge lotus buds, on either side of a palmette from the top of which emerges a lotus bud. Added colour (yellow on white) for details of bird, stephane, jewelry, and flowers. Flange on edge and underside of lid are reserved. 2004.73.0004.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:1951.160.1 within. Interior and mouth glazed black with two reserved bands at top and bottom of rim. On exterior, below rim, a frieze of tendrils, with lotus buds above and below.

She holds a torch in her advanced left hand, while her right hand, downturned, is also slightly raised. She faces a youth, nude except for a chlamys draped over his left arm and slippers, who stands in 3/4 view to the left, reaching toward the woman with his right hand. Between the figures, in the upper field, is a window frame, while a large tendril, with volute, emerges from the ground, between them. In the field behind him is a leaf. B: Two robed youths, standing profile, with their right legs advanced, face eachother across a narrow stele. Above them is a circle with a black line vertically through the centre and an 'H' drawn on top (probably halteres). 2003.95.0072.jpg

REDMG:1953.41.1 Decorated entirely in black glaze except for the decorated tondo, the reserved resting surface (and perhaps also reserved handle zones which are, however, unclear because it is obscured by deposits). The centre of the bowl is decorated with a reserved circle in which is seated an abstracted human figure, perhaps a Scythian (wearing a mitra), holding a drinking horn. 2005.99.0133.jpg
REDMG:1958.111.1 Black glaze except reserved on the lower part of the foot, resting surface, and udnerside. Red figure palmette (11 leaves) with tendrils and leaves rising from either side. Small, dotted circle on left side, above tendril; round groundline. 2004.99.0928.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.2003.6.25 Fragment of the middle segment of a plate(?) chalice(?) with the stem that would have held it up broken off. Exterior, white, interior black with two slightly faded relatively thin white lines that would have made a circle, with a white blob (part of an X?) and a red dot on and in between the lines of the possible X within the circles.
TEMP.2003.6.27 Exterior white with small chips. Interior black with a pair of white lines at one edge and a small white half circle from the exterior line to the edge. Parallel to these white lines towards the opposite edge is a incised line.
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
