14.9.109 Exterior and interior black glazed, turning to red in places (especially around complete handle). Underside of foot reserved with one black band. 2003.97.0495.jpg
2007.10.2.294 A young winged figure seated on the ground (probably Eros). The figure's body is facing to the left while the head is turned back looking to the right. The figure is possibly looking at a stand to its right which has a complete set of armour placed upon it.
22.3.24 Clay greyish. Inside, with reserved circle, woman running with tray in one hand, uncertain object in other. Rocky ground shown by black spots on reserved surface. Around the inside rim of the kylix are heart and flower shape patterns attached to long flowing lines.Added white, sometimes touched with yellow. On deep rim, ivy beneath. Outside A: two men facing each other holding different uncetain objects there are three circular objects around them, two with a dot in the middle and the other with a cross. Three palmette patterns surround each of the men, but as some of the kylix is missing these patterns are not all complete, the patterns also change slightly when under the handle. The lower quarter of presumably similar picture of the men can also be seen. 2003.28.0091.jpg
23.11.31F Profile figure facing right. Face visible through a helmet, with a potential eye socket marked out. Complete shield with an ornate bike spokes formation. Appears to have once held a spear. Two prominent thin legs emerge from underneath shield. Lead is an off-colour white-grey. 2003.96.0001.jpg
26.2.66 Exterior cream ground with two golden-brown bands running lengthwise, between two golden-brown lines. The interior shows two white bands running lengthwise on a brownish-black ground. One of the white bands is dashed, while the other is complete. 2007.03.1187.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. 2007.99.0044.jpg
E.23.40.1-4 One is a complete ring with an oblong panel on the top / front. The second piece is half a ring with what appears to be a crocodile (?) moulded on to the front. The third piece presumably was the top of the ring and is an oblong panel with incisions. All three are blue and glazed.
REDMG:1951.134.1 Black interior and handle; beneath each handle a palmette, flanked by tendrils; on each side a wave band, to right, above a woman's head, profile to left, surrounded by tendrils. Banded decoration below is comprised of a reserved band just below the figural scene, a pair of red bands above the foot, a red band on the upper surface of the foot, and reserved area at the centre of the underside. The common use of red stain to effect a red (ruddled) surface on reserved areas is highlighted in this example by the almost complete loss of black glaze towards the foot, where the ruddled intervening bands strongly contrast with the buff/reserved (formerly black glazed) areas. 2004.99.0768.jpg
TEMP.2003.7.5 Curved and painted on both sides. The "outer" concave side is painted light beige with two small brown bands running lengthwise along it. 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.2003.8.1 (a)Part of the rim of an open jug of some sort. The inside segment of the rim is painted black, with numerous small bits having been chipped off. Moving outwards, the rim consists of the inside of the pot wall, which then splays out in a flat top rim, and then falls down again in a second wall that is left dangling from the outer rim. So, moving from the inside outwards on the underside, there is a valley of about 1.0 wide and 1.5 deep until the top of the second rim (which is peaked) is reached. The outward facing side of this downward pointed rim consists of alternating lines of black dots and thin black lines which run around the entire outer diameter of the rim. There are two rows of dots and two lines, alternating which each other, all of which are heavily worn. The top part of the rim, which would be facing upwards if the pot were complete, is about 2.2 wide and flat, marked with black raised lines that repeat about every .3 and which start at the outer edge and are 1.7 long, and painted black. These lines are heavily worn. There are also two significant chips in the top of this rim, each about 2 long. (b)Another part of the same rim to the same vessel. The same dot and line pattern runs around the outer diameter. On top the lines which are thicker at the end pointing into the pot are repeated, a palmette decorates the larger flat area of the handle region.
