50.4.22 The bowl is a variant of Hoffmann's shape III (see H. Hoffmann, Tarentine Rhyta [Mainz 1966] 2) but the bowl is unusually aligned with the animal head. The Reading example corresponds to Hoffmann's 'main group' of Tarentine ram's-head rhyta, and particularly to his group E, which is 'the first wholly naturalistic representation of the ram-head', which he ascribes to the 'hand of Coroplast Beta' 2003.92.0306.jpg
69.7.1 Foot-shaped aryballos; Dohan Morrow's Group II, 'network sandals' (Dohan Morrow 1985, 6-9) or Ducat's type B foot-shaped vases (Ducat 1966, 182-84). Foot-shaped aryballos with a broad rim, short vertical strap handle, squared, offset neck; the body of the vase in the shape of a left foot, including ankle, with relief decoration that gives the effect of a sandal enclosing it, and a flat, reserved base. 2005.88.0054.jpg
