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
13.10.6 Flat bronze heart-shape piece, flaring at the pointed end, with a spool-shaped element (reel-shaped, according to Catling, as recorded in the Ure archives), horizontally arranged and attached at the centre of the upper part; Each end of the spool comprises a flat disk, while at the centre the surface is curved and narrower, so that a vertical space is revealed between the heart and the spool. 2008.03.0009.jpg
E.62.8 Deep sided bowl with curved sides and no significant base meaning bowl is slightly unsteady. There are two incised bands on the outer surface around the rim and a more significant ridge on the inside where bronze has been folded over to make a smooth and safe edge. 2005.88.0070.jpg
E.63.20 Triangular prism attached to a cylinder of flattened bronze.
L.2016.3.13 Bronze figurine of a dog or cow, with geometric body shape: Elongated back/belly, pin-like legs (standing wide apart), short pointy muzzle, slightly outwards pointed ears or horns, downwards sloping tail.
