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
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

2006.12.27 Cylindrical. Tapers outward at both ends, with two wider ridges at once end 2007.03.0512.jpg
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.
2008.7.118 Cylindrical tapered at both ends and pierced through the centre.
23.11.31KK Male facing left, playing pipes. Wearing only a short cloak, which is wound about the shoulders and draped to fall forward over both arms. The left hand holds the pipes to the lips, and the right hand is clenched to grip an incomplete object. 2003.96.0036.jpg
29.5.5 Handles move straight out horizontal to the body and both have small horns either side. 2003.19.0005.jpg
34.2.2 Small hydria with plain everted rim, with a round lip, curving continuously to a narrow concave neck and a sloping shoulder, then an ovoid body attached to a short disk foot, tapering on both exterior and interior, with a flat resting surface and a pointed underside. The vertical strap handle, slightly concave on its outer side, reaches from the lip to the widest part of the body, where it curves into the shoulder. Two horizontal d-shaped, upcurving handles, round in section, also rise up from the join of the shoulder and body. 2002.97.0658.jpg
37.11.4 Type B, formerly called 'glaux'. One horizontal handle and one vertical, both circular. Handles are attached just below rim which curves inwards. 2003.97.0663.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
50.12.51 Fragment almost cylindrical, but pointed at both ends.
60.8.3A-B Lid: three tiered round knob with central, nearly conical well; short concave stem curving above and below into knob and lid; nearly flat lid tapering gently to a short vertical rim, rounded at both edges. The underside is slightly hollowed under the knob. Lekanis: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls, slightly carinated and narrowing, with convex lower portion, to a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, curved on the underside, with a rounded point at the centre. A wishbone handle rises from the top of the wall, on either side; a lug protrudes from either side of each handle. Ure 1960, 216 notes that what remains of the one handle indicates that it was pointed (wish-bone shaped) at the centre as well as rounded in section. 2010.98.0344.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.
