26.2.63 Fragment bulging at handle zone.
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:1934.26.1 Small cup with rounded rim on a flaring lip that sharply joins a shallow bowl with bulging profile; two horizontal round handles, canted up, join at the broadest part of the bowl. The bowl has almost no stem but attaches directly to a raised ring base with diagonal profile, slightly convex resting surface, and slightly pointed underside. 2004.99.0896.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:2004.97.1 Plain rounded rim; tapering walls, slightly concave, broaden slightly at the bottom of the bowl, which is moulded with two carinations; diagonal profile to bottom of bowl; tall cylindrical stem, slightly bulging at the middle, curves out to a flat disk foot, with rounded sides, but an indeterminate bottom. Two vertical strap handles swing up from the rim and rejoin the vase at the lower carination, where they comprise a smooth curve with the bottom of the bowl. 2004.99.0889.jpg
