13.10.1 Rat-tanged dirk (sword blade used as a dagger or spearhead), with long thin blade, pointed at both ends, with sloping shoulders. A rib runs nearly the full length of the piece (flattened in the last 2 cm of the blade end). The middle of the rib, near the attachment end, is thin, rhomboidal in section, narrowing to pointed tip or tang which is turned up slightly at the end. Approximately 1/4 down the length of the blade the flange broadens, so that two flat sides spread from the centre rib. The blade end of the dirk has nearly straight sides, but tapers gently to a rounded tip. Catling's type 1d; near ├ůstrom's type I4. As Catling suggests (1964, 56) the rat-tailed weapon, the most characteristic of prehistoric Cypriote metal forms, occurs in so many sizes that it is impossible to classify them as swords, dirks, daggers, or even spearheads. 2007.99.0100.jpg
2003.6.19 Single fragment from near the attachment of a handle. 2007.03.1216.jpg
22.3.20 Moulded overhanging rim in three sections, reaching to the point of attachment of the handle on the front of the fragment. 2007.03.1169.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
46.9.2 Rim set off by ridge at level of upper attachment of handle. Lower part of body grooved in upper reserved half. Side of foot stepped, resting surface grooved. Handles spurred. 2003.19.0003.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
REDMG:1950.25.1 Type 8B oinochoe. Wide mouth with rounded, slightly overhanging rim flaring out from a broad neck, attached sharply to the top of the barrel-shaped body, with a moulded ring foot, with a vertical upper part and a grooved, slightly broadening lower part; narrow, flat resting surface; slightly concave underside. Two-piece handle, knotted at the top, splays at the attachment to the rim. 2003.93.0334.jpg
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. Two moulded male heads, bearded, are found on either side of the upper handle attachment. 2005.99.0048.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.16 Trefoil mouth at the back of which is attached a hook-shaped round handle that begins above the height of the mouth and turns back to join the shoulder, with a slight spur; short neck curving into a baggy body in a continuous curve; short ring foot with narrow, rounded resting surface, diagonal inside wall, and pointed underside. Handle attachment is indicative of the Dotted Spray Group 2005.99.0090.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.55 Wide flaring mouth with rounded rim; short neck narrowing to sharp join to an ovoid body that tapers sharply at the bottom to a flat base; grooved just above the base. Two-piece strap handle splays at the attachment to the rim and rejoins the shoulder (for handle cf. RM.1950.25, which is, however, knotted). 2003.93.0301.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.59 Deep round mouth with rounded rim, concave, slightly overhanging lip, attached to a high swung vertical strap handle, which reattaches at the shoulder. Below the mouth is a short neck with a ridge at the attachment to the globular body, slightly flattened, and a low, sharply angled foot with a flat base.Corinth round-mouthed oinochoe, type A, group i: see Corinth 13, 131 fig. 14, 134.
REDMG:1961.150.1 Spreading lip, flat, with rounded rim, above tall, cylindrical neck, with ridge at center, just above attachment of l-shaped strap-handle, joining at centre of shoulder; squat piriform body, nearly flat base, ridge at exterior, groove just within. 2004.99.0833.jpg
REDMG:1964.1649 White-ground lekythos, group iii. Tall cylindrical neck broadening to a diagonal shoulder. Vertical strap handle rises from top of neck to bottom of the shoulder, where it broadens. Below the handle attachment a carination marks the join with the straight body, which narrows at the base to a molded pedestal foot with a slightly concave outer edge, convex underside, indented in the centre.
