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
14.9.2 Fat body, long bottle neck with spreading lip, large U-shaped handle. Two moulded rings round neck at junction with handle. Foot conical. Cf. Sydney, Nicholson 52.418 (with shorter foot and more relief decoration) 2010.99.0056.jpg
22.9.3 Cone shaped body. Vertical ring handles, ribbon. Broad duf-bottomed cap, spreading foot. Shallow depression inside in bottom (cf. CVA pl.19.1,2). 2003.29.0001.jpg
26.7.11 There is a single strap-handle at the top. There is a small ball of clay, on the interior, which appears to plug up a hole at the top of the bell. Cf. especially Wolters-Bruns pl. 43.13 2002.97.0314.jpg
37.7.5 Cf. Ure 1927, 58 ('Rhitsona class AI') 2002.99.0044.jpg
45.4.5 Miniature? For shape cf. Metapontine examples dated to the end of the fifth century (Carter 1998, 2.729). For an Attic prototype see Beazley's form 5a (Beazley 1963, 1065 n. 5) 2003.92.0395.jpg
45.6.15 'Little lion' shape; Rhitsona Class P (cf. Haspels, ABL 107). Shallow, flared mouth. 2003.97.0390.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
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
47.2.9 Small bowl, 'later and light', according to Gill. Cf. Reading 14.9.106 Shallow bowl with incurving rim, concave on inner face, torus ring foot, circular ridge in middle of underside before convex centre. 2008.98.0431.jpg
48.11.8 This shape was particularly popular at Agrigento, where many tombs contained one example (it is called 'brochetto attingitoio' or juglet for drawing liquids, comparable to the attic 'chous'): see especially Veder Greco, Contrada Mosè: 264 (tomb 3); Contrada Pezzino: 306 (tomb 582), 348 (tomb 238), 352 (tomb 779), 353 (tomb 1086), 354 (tombs 585 and 1147), and 355 (tomb 1225). Cf. also Lentini 61613/E (top half glossed) and 61569/B (smaller): Lagona 1973, 86-87 nos. 185 and 186, pl. 30. 2003.92.0398.jpg
48.12.12 Cf. 14.9.105 2008.99.0531.jpg
50.4.11 Castulo cup. Cf. Agora 12, 101-2 2010.98.0312.jpg
50.4.13 Attic type skyphos (cf. Agora 12, no. 341) except for plain underside, size (somewhat smaller than Attic examples), and perhaps breadth of handles. 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
50.4.18 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
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
53.8.2 Rounded rim; steep angled wall; slightly sloping floor continuously curving to the stemmed foot with a high trumpet-shaped base below moulding. Offset on interior at join of wall and floor. Base mostly flat but conical at the centre. Cf. Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum 918.3.72: Hayes 1984, 100 no. C67 (ill.) 2008.99.0710.jpg
58.2.6 One-handled bowl. Rim is slightly concave. Handle is in wishbone shape. A deep well is in the centre, of a greatly smaller diameter than the rest of the bowl. For general shape cf. Sydney, Nicholson Museum 55.18 (Base-ring wheel-made Ware, Late Cypriot III). 2003.92.0112.jpg
60.1.1 Pagenstecher lekythos: cf. a more elaborate example from Lipari, 'scavo XXXV': Bernabo Brea and Cavalier 1997, fig. 108 (middle) 2003.99.0032.jpg
70.3.1 Cf. "Sixth and Fifth Century Pottery", P.N.Ure (ed.), p51 shape class M (see also 'Comments') - although lip is slightly more protrusive than the type indicates as its norm. 2008.10.0045.jpg
83.9.12 'Delicate class': for the same shape cf. also Reading 14.9.113 (from Gela?) and 83.9.12 (also from Al Mina). 2006.20.0310.jpg
83.9.3 Bowl with outturned rim: cf. Reading 47.2.8 (from Tamassos) and Reading 83.9.4 and 83.9.7 (both from Al Mina). 2006.20.0926.jpg
83.9.4 Bowl with outturned rim: cf. Reading 47.2.8 (from Tamassos) and Reading 83.9.3 and 83.9.7 (both from Al Mina). 2006.20.0923.jpg
83.9.7 Bowl with outturned rim: cf. Reading 47.2.8 (from Tamassos) and Reading 83.9.3 and 83.9.4 (both from Al Mina). 2006.20.0307.jpg

REDMG:1934.51.8 Nearly conical shallow bowl, with a slightly incurving rounded rim, slightly convex side walls, and a thick, small foot, with straight sides on the exterior, tapered on the interior; pointed underside. For shape cf. CVA France 6 (Ensenere) pl. 22 and Lamboglia (Atti di I congr. Intrem di Studi Liguri (1950) 39, forma 26. 2004.99.0795.jpg
REDMG:1934.53.5 Belly-handled jar. High outturned rim narrowing to a short neck; ovoid body, in the centre of which are attached two vertical round handles, canted; flat base, slightly concave. Cf. larger examples of this shape are in Toronto, Royal Ontario Museum 918.3.77 (Hayes 1984, 47, no. B29, ill.) and Orvieto, Querce inv. 398 (Camporeale 1970, 126 no. 136, fig. 59, pl. 32b). 2004.99.0331.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.18A Trefoil-lipped oinochoe with lid tricorn lid (RM.87.35.18B). Wide-bodied, with a tall curved handle, trefoil mouth, and tricorn lid. Body contracting to foot-ring. Cf. Payne NC fig. 10 A-H, esp G. 2003.93.0247.jpg

REDMG:1953.25.53 Incurving rim with concave lip, narrowing to a short neck at the top of which is attached a small vertical strap handle that extends the the shoulder; wall curves continuously from neck, widening to an ovoid body atop a disk foot; underside concave with a slight circular protruberance at centre. Tapering 'cucumber', survival of the Late Corinthian Archaic type (see Corinth 13, 140-41, fig. 15), but with a disk foot. E.g. Corinth T1317: Corinth 13, 222 no. 277-4, pl. 37. Cf. also Rhitsona 50.273. 2002.97.0005.JPG
REDMG:1953.25.55 Wide flaring mouth with rounded rim; short neck narrowing to sharp join to an ovoid body that tapers sharply at the bottom to a flat base; grooved just above the base. Two-piece strap handle splays at the attachment to the rim and rejoins the shoulder (for handle cf. RM.1950.25, which is, however, knotted). 2003.93.0301.jpg
REDMG:1964.1621 Wide mouth with moulded, slightly concave lip, and slightly everted rim, below which the short vertical strap handle emerges, bends, and descends to the shoulder. Globular body attached to an angled ring foot. Shape similar to Corinthian round-mouthed oinochoe, type B (cf. Corinth 13, fig. 14), but with a slightly concave lip, and more globular than Corinth T1712: Corinth 13, 228 no. 296-2, pl. 41. 2008.99.0225.jpg
REDMG:1964.1705.1 Cf. CVA Michigan 1, pl. 5.13 2008.99.0185.jpg
