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
14.9.111 Thin loomweight, pierced with two holes of equal size, 0.5 cm apart, near the edge. 2002.97.0605.jpg
2005.2.5 Rectangular prism, taller than wide, pierced through the upper part, ca. 1 cm. from the top. 2005.02.0320.jpg
27.4.5 Rim turns sharply out, broad and flat on top. Handles rounded at far end and with upward twist. In centre of bowl a well 1.5 cm deep occupies the space interior of the stem. The foot appears in three stages, the first ridge being the narrowest, and the other two getting bigger in sequence. 2003.19.0007.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
51.7.2 Lid: slightly convex top with circular groove (1.9 cm diam.) at the centre, overhanging a cylindrical body, with straight sides, terminating in a rounded rim at bottom. Pyxis: high cylindrical body with straight sides and simple rounded rim sits atop a flanged element, with rounded edges, that slopes sharply to a foot ring with tapered interior edge and rounded resting surface. 2003.92.0198.jpg
68.12.2 Short cylindrical knob, flat-topped and double-recessed in centre. The short concave stem connects the cylinder to the short domed lid, in a continuous curve. Beyond a gouge the outer 1.8 cm of the lid becomes slightly concave and after two ridges terminates in a slightly rounded edge.The underside is hollowed just below the knob, and has a short flange intended to sits inside the rim of the pyxis to which it would have belonged. 2002.97.0272.jpg
E.62.34 Part of jug and basin set (basin missing). Flat base, wide shoulders, tall neck (ca. 6 cm), with striated lip and wide mouth. 2002.98.0022.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.30 Mouth has a rim that slopes downwards. Concave sides with two small lug handles, each placed ca. 1.5 cm below rim ; carination and further concave element near flat base.
REDMG:1951.132.1 Guttus type askos: swelling rounded body with bearing at the top a large relief medallion (frontal female mask with puffed cheeks and a lock of hair knotted over the forehead) offset and raised from the body; at a distance of ca. 0.5 cm are two incised lines beyond which the body is covered with fine vertical fluting down to its midpoint. A long diagonal spout with slightly concave sides rises obliquely from the shoulder below the medallion, and terminates in a three-stepped flanged mouth. A loop handle (semicircular in cross section) rises from the shoulder at a right angle to the spout. A tall thick foot, offset from the body, with a ridge at the halfway point broadens toward a ring base, slightly rounded on the exterior, with a concave underside offset from a concave element within the narrow resting surface. The foot is particularly tall, and is ridged in the middle: otherwise in shape this askos corresponds to Morel's type 8141h 1 (Morel 1981, pl. 209). 2004.99.0752.jpg
REDMG:1964.1670 Rounded everted rim; sides comprise two concave parts, the upper one larger; groove inside mouth, approximately 1.0 cm below rim; flat but uneven base with comb or wire marks. 2004.99.0081.jpg
