11.10.21 If the foot is restored correctly this is a variant of Ure's type K 2 (Ure 1927, 68), which is the most common Haemonian skyphos, as judged by the Agora material: cf. Agora 23, 60, esp. no. 1516, pl. 103 (with the same type of foot); ABV 565-71, 598-710 Slightly concave black rim; shallow bowl with flat underside; moulded ring foot, with concave inner surface. 2008.99.0780.jpg

34.10.15 Gourd-shaped vessel, with an elongated ovoid body tapering into a cylindrical handle that finally terminates in elongated, rounded tip. Pierced in the bottom of the ovoid part, and ca. 2 cm from the tip. Use as a rattle is indicated by the sound of a pebble inside. 2004.95.0115.jpg

45.6.30 Molded, overhanging rim with a lower flange, curving into a thin neck which gradually widens to an ovoid body; molded foot, concave on the underside. For shape cf. bottles found at Metaponto that are similar (in shape and decoration) catalogued by L. Burn in Carter 1998, 2.632-633, especially T 192-6. Cf. also Padova, Museo Civico Archeologico inv. 1746-C: Zampieri 1996, 203-204 no. 58 (ill.). 2003.37.0001.jpg

47.10.3A-B Lid: tall, conical, flat-topped knob on a sharply sloping conical lid, with plain rim, vertical profile, flat underside, leading to a short flange (0.3) to sit within lekanis. Lekanis: slightly everted, rounded rim with flat lip, on a deep bowl with straight walls in two parts, separated by a sharp carination near the bottom, attached to a short disk foot, angled on inside and out, with a slightly convex underside. From either side of the rim extends a semicircular horizontal handle, round in section, that rises very slightly, flanked by short pointed spurs or lugs on either side of the handle. 2010.98.0012.jpg
47.2.12 Rounded, slightly incurved rim; shallow convex upper wall divided by a reserved groove from a sharply concave wall that runs continuously down to the foot, although only a single curve is perceived on the interior.

49.12.1 Everted, nearly flat rim, with round lip, curves sharply to a cylindrical upper body, somewhat concave, separated from the lower body by a ridge above a flange. The lower body is comprised of four horizontal ribs, above a shallow bowl that narrows to a thin, short stem, that curves continuously into a conical foot, finishing with a broad groove above a rounded edge. The underside is hollowed. Two strap handles, which flare on either side, rise up above the rim and then descend to rejoin the body at the flange. A spur projects from the lower part of each handle, approximately in the middle of the upper body. 2008.98.0387.jpg

Rounded rim, below which are two horizontal round handles, horseshoe shaped. Walls continuously curve into a deep bowl, divided from the short torus ring foot by a groove. 2003.97.0646.jpg
50.4.14 Gill classes it as a kantharos of the 'Ampurias class'. Sessile kantharos with low handles. Sparkes 1968, 9, notes that the sessile kantharos with low handles is the most practical, albeit least elegant, of the fifth century kantharoi. Slightly outturned, rounded rim; tall, flaring wall, offset from shallow rounded bowl, divided from moulded ring foot by groove. Two vertical strap handles loop down from rim down to just above junction of wall and bowl. 2003.92.0162.jpg

Classed by Gill as a 'plain rim' type; he further notes 'Acrocup type foot and fillet'. 2003.92.0176.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
50.4.19 The shape is nearly identical to that of a smaller lekythos from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by M. Elliott in Carter 1998, 2.684-85 SL10 (T 128-3), although the ribbing is more akin to that found on Pantanello SL9 (T 126-9). Cf. also Sicilian examples from Agrigento (especially AG 1331: de Miro 1962, 137, fig. 41c). See also 'comments' below. 2003.37.0082.jpg

REDMG:1953.25.51 Upturned rim, slightly offset from the neck, which is cylindrical and nearly straight, joining an ovoid body, slightly baggy, supported by a broad ring base. Vertical strap handle, grooved, extends horizontally from the rim and curves back into the body, which it joins in the upper part.

This example corresponds to Ure's Class II.C skyphos, particularly (ii) which includes reddish-purple bands just below the level of the handles, perhaps a band at the bottom of the body where it joins the ring foot, and concentric purple bands on the underside (or plain black or reserved undersides). See Ure 1927, 24.
