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
27.4.1 Deep ovoid bowl with concave rim and rounded lip, narrowing to a disk foot, rounded on the exterior, sharply beveled on the interior, with a flat resting surface and a slightly convex underside. On either side a u-shaped handle, round in cross-section, rises up from just below the rim, top the height of the lip. There is a slight groove at the join of body and foot. 2010.98.0197.jpg
51.1.4 Slightly everted lip with rounded rim, on a deep plate that is convex at the upper part and then curves, with a near carination to become concave in the lower part, on a flat base that is beveled on the outer part. A single suspension hole is on the lip. 2004.02.0009.jpg
51.7.15 A small mouth, with flaring lip, on a short concave stem, is joined smoothly to a ring aryballos, rectangular in section, approximating a sharp-edged donut, with beveled edges on the inside. A short strap handle rises slightly from the rim and curves smoothly to adhere to the exterior surface of the aryballos. Ure 57: 'Rectangular in section, as is normal in Boeotia'; cf. P.N. Ure, Hesperia 15 (1946) 45-50. Small mouth and handle. Angular shape with side and edge flat 2004.06.0013.jpg
56.8.2 Tall inslanting rim with plain round lip, sharply turning to a short shoulder that broadens to an ovoid body, which tapers to a tall moulded foot, comprised of a beveled top, two concave elements, a carination, below which a scotia above a torus. The resting surface is ridged and the underside consists of a pointed convex centre, within a tapering concave part. Two u-shaped handles, round in section, rise from the bottom of the shoulder to high above the rim. On either side of each handle is a pointed lug. 2002.97.0579.jpg
61.6.5 Lid: Short button knob, with flat band, beveled interior edge, and slightly convex top, curving smoothly to a nearly flat underside that smoothly joins a short, slightly concave stem, that again smoothly joins a flat, tapering smoothly to a short vertical rim, rounded at both edges. The underside is hollowed under the knob. One-handler: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls curving into a convex lower portion then a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, beveled on the interior, and slightly convex on the underside. A single, recurved horizontal handle, round in section, rises above the rim. 2002.97.0677.jpg
68.12.3 Pomegranate shaped knob, with small hole in the recess at the top, smoothly attached to a short stem, slightly concave, that spreads to a short domed lid, which in turn spreads to a flat rim with sharp beveled edge, slightly thicker underside, smoothly turned to a tapered flange with a rounded edge. Hollowed, round, smooth underside. 2008.99.0609.jpg
REDMG:1951.131.1 Slim alabastron with narrow mouth, projecting rim, slightly convex on the upper surface, and beveled at the edge, flat on the underside; tall, slightly concave neck, offset from a tall ovoid body, with two small lug handles on the upper 1/4 of the body; molded pedestal foot is comprised of a tapering upper element broadening into a disk foot, with a diagonal outer surface, with three ridges, a flat resting surface, and a conical indentation on the underside. 2003.93.0379.jpg
REDMG:1951.136.1 Moulded knob, topped by an offset beveled element with inset circle on upper surface; concave stem curves into a diagonal lid, with a slightly incurving lip, with a rounded rim. 2004.99.0633.jpg
REDMG:1951.137.1 Moulded knob, topped by beveled element with inset circle on upper surface; concave stem, attached to a nearly flat lid, with a moulded flange on the underside, slightly concave at centre. 2004.73.0004.jpg
REDMG:1951.138.1 Moulded rounded (‘mushroom’) knob, topped by beveled disk with inset circle, conical indentation on upper surface, surrounded by a groove; cylindrical stem offset from a to a slightly diagonal lid, with a moulded flange on the underside, concave at centre.
REDMG:1953.25.69-70 Moulded knob, topped by an offset beveled element with inset circle on upper surface, with a two-part profile, convex on the upper part; concave stem curves into a diagonal lid, with a slightly incurving convex lip that terminates in a rounded rim. 2007.02.0002.jpg
