13.10.24 Cylindrical alabastron, with rounded base, tapering at both ends, more sharply to the mouth; the shape, dimensions, and proportions are comparable to that of Ure 13.10.23, which is, however, complete. 2010.99.0061.jpg
13.10.4A-B Two slightly concave disks, not joined (although they sit together well). The lid is thinner than the base with no significant rim, but a beveled edge. The mirror itself has a rim on the underside, and an offset edge on the upper part. These are clearly two parts of a Hellenistic mirror with lid, typical of Hellenistic cyprus. A pair of bronze plates could be locked together because one mirror had a low cylindrical rim into which the other, with a flanged edge, could be fitted. The inside mirror is decorated on the recessed side and polished on the flat side. The outside mirror is polished on the recessed side and sometimes decorated on the flat side. The two polished sides would then lie together, sometimes plated with silver (as in the case of an example in Amathus tomb 62, published in Excavations in Cyprus). For the Greek prototypes see See A. Schwarzmaier, Griechische Klappspiegel: Untersuchungen zu Typologie und Stil (Berlin 1997). 2010.99.0120.jpg
14.9.108 Inset rim to receive lid. Two horizontal circular handles with side protrusions, one on each side, are just below rim on each side of lekanis. 2003.30.0010.jpg
2007.4.216 Pouring lip of a pot, complete with rim from the top of the pot. There are holes in the pot where the liquid would come out
2007.9.4 Both long edges are curved, one more greatly so, resulting in the width of fragment being much wider at one end, meetimg the horizontal edge at a small point.
2007.9.9 Two straightish sides meet at an almost right-angle. Depending whether one looks at the outside or the inside of the fragment, there are a further one or two sides, due to the very uneven nature of the edge.
2016.5.4 Ovoidal body with round base. The shoulders are carved with vestigial tiny lugs handles. Short neck. Half section of the neck is broken off. 2016.01.0046.jpg

45.10.1 High, curved, thick, black handle which bends back on itself to attach to mouth and at the back to the lower part of the shoulder. At the mouth attachment are two moulded heads; spout has central channel and two ridges at moulded rim. The cylindrical neck becomes bell shaped in its lower part, and a ridge marks its attachment to the shoulder, which is slightly concave. Beyond the handle attachment is a flat rim, offset from the shoulder and, more sharply, from the body beneath it, which is upright but slightly convex. The very short ring foot, with broad resting surface, is as broad as the rim around the shoulder. 2004.99.0028.jpg
45.10.10 Fragments comprising of most of tondo, moulded foot and base; the handles are riddled, of ellipsoid cross-section and upcurving. 2010.98.0133.jpg

For shape cf. bottles found at Metaponto that are similar (in shape and decoration) catalogued by L. Burn in Carter 1998, 2.632-633, especially T 192-6. Cf. also Padova, Museo Civico Archeologico inv. 1746-C: Zampieri 1996, 203-204 no. 58 (ill.). 2003.37.0001.jpg
45.6.34 Bell-shaped mouth tapering to a short neck that broadens to an ovoid body. High swung strap handle joins from neck to shoulder. Conical foot. 'Pagenstecher lekythos' type. Cf. CVA Michigan 1, pl. 27.11 (smaller but similar shape and surface, said to have been found at Taranto) and Lentini inv. 61597: Lagona 1973, no. 85, pl. 11 (more slender). Both of these examples have smaller handles. For Sicilian vessels of this shape (decorated with bands or undecorated) see examples from Selinunte (Anne Kustermann Graf, Selinunte. Necropoli di Manicalunga. Le tombe della Contrada Gaggera [2002] 181 inv. nos. 113/0 952 and 953, pl. 57 [tomb 113]); Camarina (MonAnt 54 [1990] 25, pl. VIII [tomb 590.2]; 54, pl. XXVI [tomb 799.1-2]; and pl. LXXXIII [tombs 1222.5-6 and 1232.2, which are taken to be (imitative of) Corinthian lekythoi). 2002.97.0017.JPG

48.12.2 Deep bowl (corresponds to FS [='Furumark Shape'] 285). The shape seems somewhat less deep than most published deep bowls. The best comparison to be found is in Mountjoy 1999, 1.189 Argolid no. 447, from Asine, House I, room 46. Bowl of pinkish fabric with flaring lipless rim, concave sides, tapering in lower part to a high ring base (is it conical?). Two horizontal round handles are attached to the side walls. 2003.98.0127.jpg
49.8.1 Unusual form; neck and body are identical to a shape 8M oinochoe (mug) in Boston, Museum of Fine Arts 22.632 (Padgett 1993, 211 no. 142, ill.), as if a fancier rim, handle, and lower part of the foot have been added to this piece. 2004.99.0026.jpg
50.10.2 Slightly everted lip with nearly flat rim, on a cylindrical bowl with concave sides, divided with a a sharp carination from a convex lower that smoothly curves into a short stem on a rounded foot ring, with rounded resting surface, tapering inner wall, and nearly flat underside. Two suspension holes are arranged horizontally just below the rim on one side. 2008.98.0344.jpg

Slightly outturned rim with concave lip, inset on interior and exterior, below which are attached two horizontal round handles, oblong in shape, incurved and rising to the height of the rim. Shallow bowl divided from a spreading, lipped torus ring foot by a broad groove. 2001.99.0131.jpg
50.4.13 Attic type skyphos (cf. Agora 12, no. 341) except for plain underside, size (somewhat smaller than Attic examples), and perhaps breadth of handles. Rounded rim, below which are two horizontal round handles, horseshoe shaped. Walls continuously curve into a deep bowl, divided from the short torus ring foot by a groove. 2003.97.0646.jpg
50.4.18 Nearly identical to a lidded mug excavated from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by Maria Elliott, in Carter 1998 2.643, fig. 14.2, 667 M3 (T 128-2): the Pantanello mug, which Elliott describes as an 'odd mug' and probably a local imitation of the late 5 c. Attic double handle mug (667), has a knotted handle which is otherwise similar to ours in contour and thickness. For less close comparanda cf. Morel 1981, type 5345a (citing examples from Capua and environs, e.g. CVA Capua 3, Italia 1312 no. 2: less squat, but similar); these Campanian examples are dated to ca. 300. Convex lip with rounded outturned rim, to which is joined a vertical strap handle, tripartite, with two projections on either side of the rim attachment. The handle loops and reattaches at the top of the bulging, ribbed body (ribbing visible on the interior). Tall angled ring foot, the interior of which has an incised spiral (not visible on exterior). 2010.98.0291.jpg
51.1.1 Flat outturned rim with rounded lip, sharply curving to nearly cylindrical bowl, slightly concave, which broadens and then tapers in the convex lower part to a disk foot, sloping on the upper part, rounded on the lower part, tapered on the interior, with flat resting surface and nearly flat underside. Just below the rim on one side are two holes for suspension. 2002.97.0233.jpg
51.1.2 The vertical handle is of ellipsoid cross-section with a banded back. The horizontal handles are riddled, circular and slightly curving upwards. The foot is conical, with a ring-shaped termination and the base has a concave, conical surface with an inflated semi-spherical central part. 2010.98.0180.jpg
51.4.11 Moulded rim, grooved, with flat upper surface and sharp lip, on a short cylindrical neck, with attaches, at a ridge, to an ovoid body, attached below, also at a ridge, to a slightly flaring stand, with splaying foot, slightly ridged on upper edge, bevelled on exterior, hollow on the interior. From the shoulder, on either side, rises an m-shaped handle (half of one chipped off) with short projections in the middle. Three holes (to enable air flow) are drilled into the upper part of the stand, just below the join. 2002.97.0369.jpg
51.7.7 Sessile kantharos, traditionally thought to be an imitation of the 'Saint-Valentin' class of ceramics (Beazley 1947, 219), although Robinson 1997 now says that it is derived from a metallic prototype. Quite standard among its class (Xenon Group kantharoi) in shape (and decoration). Rounded outturned rim, below which are attached two vertical strap handles, rejoined at a slight ledge between upper body and lower body; upper body near cylindrical, whereas lower body is a deep bowl; low flaring ring-foot, ridged on the exterior, with concave face on the interior continuously curving through the resting surface. 2003.97.0936.jpg

56.8.8 The body is conical, widening towards the top. The rim has horizontal sides and a small lip at the top. The band handles are almost ellipsoid, with peaked terminations. Ribbon handles. The base is in the shape of an inverted echinus (a conical stand?). 2003.95.0104.jpg
70.3.3 Ian McPhee describes it as a Kotyle rather than Skyphos type c (?). Tapering ring base, rounded at the bottom, from which the body rises in a sharp diagonal, curving sharply approximately at the halfway point, from which it rises near vertically and eventually flares slightly to a plain, rounded rim, just below which are attached two horse-shoe shaped handles, almost round in cross section. 2008.98.0449.jpg

REDMG:1934.53.5 Belly-handled jar. High outturned rim narrowing to a short neck; ovoid body, in the centre of which are attached two vertical round handles, canted; flat base, slightly concave. Cf. larger examples of this shape are in Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum 918.3.77 (Hayes 1984, 47, no. B29, ill.) and Orvieto, Querce inv. 398 (Camporeale 1970, 126 no. 136, fig. 59, pl. 32b). 2005.89.0032.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.29 Stemless. Two handles, one either side from well below the rim are bent up at the ends. Shallow body descending to a groove and then a rounded footring.
REDMG:1935.87.6 Rounded rim on tapered flange, below which the walls spread out to a thin element that would have supported the lid; just below this are attached two horizontal horseshoe-shaped strap handles, slightly canted upwards, to which spurs are attached on either side. The lower body is offset from the handle zone, rounded in the lower part where it sharply joins a moulded foot, with groove above a spreading upper part and a broader, rounded lower part, hollow on the interior, with a narrow resting surface, and a pointed, slightly offset underside.
REDMG:1951.113.3 Rounded rim, slightly incurving, below which are attached two nearly triangular horizontal strap handles and ring base, canted slightly up; rounded body broadens slightly and then narrows to an angled ring foot, curved on the resting surface, and offset from the slightly convex underside. Body broader than standard Apulian shape, so that it can't fit easily into the sequence of Gnathian skyphoi.
REDMG:1951.132.1 Guttus type askos: swelling rounded body with bearing at the top a large relief medallion (frontal female mask with puffed cheeks and a lock of hair knotted over the forehead) offset and raised from the body; at a distance of ca. 0.5 cm are two incised lines beyond which the body is covered with fine vertical fluting down to its midpoint. A long diagonal spout with slightly concave sides rises obliquely from the shoulder below the medallion, and terminates in a three-stepped flanged mouth. A loop handle (semicircular in cross section) rises from the shoulder at a right angle to the spout. A tall thick foot, offset from the body, with a ridge at the halfway point broadens toward a ring base, slightly rounded on the exterior, with a concave underside offset from a concave element within the narrow resting surface. The foot is particularly tall, and is ridged in the middle: otherwise in shape this askos corresponds to Morel's type 8141h 1 (Morel 1981, pl. 209). 2004.99.0752.jpg
REDMG:1951.133.1 Shallow ellipsoid bowl with rounded rim, underneath which are attached two horizontal round sections, curving up above the rim, rectangular in shape, and bent in at the tops.

Two incurving horizontal handles, round in sectiona, are attached to the upper third of the body; a vertical handle, also round in section, emerges from the top of the neck and curves down to the lower part of the shoulder. 2004.99.0808.jpg
REDMG:1951.141 Flaring rounded rim with flat lip, narrowing to a funnel-shaped body that curves sharply in the lower part to a broad stem that flares into a molded pedestal base, with a slanted exterior, ridged on the upper part, and a concave underside, pointed at the centre; two incurving horizontal round handles are attached just above the centre of the body.
REDMG:1951.147.1 Tall cylindrical neck offset from a squat body, with a curved shoulder, flange below the shoulder, concave side walls (offset at top and bottom), and a broader ring base, curved on the upper surface, with a broad resting surface, offset, slightly concave underside. From the front of the neck extends diagonally a tubular spout, squared at the end. From the back of the spout rises a high curving strap handle, rounded on the outside, which arches in a rectangular form, and descends sharply towards the lower part of the shoulder; which bends back on itself to attach to mouth and at the back to the lower part of the shoulder.

REDMG:1953.25.4 Plain rim, below which are attached two horizontal round handles; curved sides, nearly vertical at the top and tapering more sharply towards the angled ring foot. Shape corresponds to Corinth black-glazed skyphoi, group iii, although the pattern on this skyphos is quite different. 2003.93.0325.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.40 Rounded rim on tapered flange, below which the walls spread out to a thin element that would have supported the lid; just below this are attached two horizontal horseshoe-shaped strap handles, slightly canted upwards. The body is rounded in the lower part and sharply joins a moulded foot, with an angled upper part and a broader, rounded lower part, hollow on the interior, with a narrow resting surface. 2003.97.0324.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.41 Flanged rim and tapering body, to which are attached horizontal triangular strap handles, slightly canted upwards. The body narrows sharply to short stem, slightly offset from the top of a moulded foot, with a vertical exterior surface and a conical indentation on the underside, and a narrow resting surface. 2003.93.0327.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.44 Flaring rim, with concave profile, joining bulging body at a carination, below which are attached two u-shaped horizontal handles, rounded in section, canted slightly up; below handles body curves sharply towards stem, broken off. 2004.99.0501.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.45 Rounded rim, slightly incurved, on concave lip, below which are attached two horizontal round handles, oblong in shape, incurved and rising to the height of the rim; deep bowl joins a spreading, lipped torus ring foot.
REDMG:1953.25.46 Rounded rim, slightly incurved, on concave lip, below which are attached two horizontal round handles, oblong in shape, incurved and rising to the height of the rim; deep bowl joins a spreading, lipped torus ring foot. 2004.99.0629.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.47 Rounded everted rim on concave lip, below which are attached two horizontal round handles, oblong in shape, canted and slightly incurved, rising to just below the rim; deep bowl joins a spreading, lipped torus ring foot with a sloping resting surface.
REDMG:1953.25.5 Plain rim below which are attached two horizontal round handles; concave sides tapering down to a narrow, angled ring foot with convex resting surface. Semi-glazed skyphos, type ii: see Corinth 13, 125 fig. 13 2003.97.0216.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.77 Large circular, deep body, flat shoulder, slightly raised, concave discus with a small filling hole in the centre. the beginnings of two nozzles, both sided are concave with large decorative features protruding from either side. Base of handle remains with half of the hole left. Ring base, slightly concave. 2005.01.0270.jpg
REDMG:1953.41.1 Rounded rim on a concave lip, above shallow bowl; just below lip are attached two round horizontal handles, rectangular in shape, slightly incurving. A short stem, slightly concave, attaches the bowl to a thick disk foot, convex on the underside (a continuation of the rounded resting surface) but hollowed through the middle of the stem. 2005.99.0133.jpg

REDMG:1964.1631 Very thin walls, with rounded rim, just below which are attached horizontal handles. Walls slightly concave, divided from a spreading, lipped torus ring foot, with a pointed resting surface, by a pair of grooves. This example corresponds to Ure's Class II.C skyphos, particularly (ii) which includes reddish-purple bands just below the level of the handles, perhaps a band at the bottom of the body where it joins the ring foot, and concentric purple bands on the underside (or plain black or reserved undersides). See Ure 1927, 24.
REDMG:1964.1632.1 Deep skyphos. Thin rim, slightly averted, below which u-shaped round horizontal handles are attached, and rise slightly to just above the height of the walls. The sides, tapering down, are slightly convex at the top and concave below, terminating in a groove, just above the short raised base with a flat underside, grooved on the outside. 2006.20.0243.jpg
REDMG:1964.1675.1 Rounded rim surrounded bya slight ridge from which rises the shoulder of a squat ovoid body, tapering to a short angled ring base, concave on central part of underside. On interior of rim five evenly spaced notches are gouged into the inside of the mouth.
REDMG:2004.96.1 Palmette. Rounded rim on a concave lip, above shallow bowl; just below lip are attached two round horizontal handles, rectangular in shape, canted and slightly incurved, rising to just below the height of the rim. A short stem, slightly concave, attaches the bowl to a thick disk foot, with a groove at the outer edge of the vertical surface; broad, convex resting surface; hollowed through the middle of the stem. 2004.99.0960.jpg
