A wishbone handle rises from the top of the wall, on either side; a lug protrudes from either side of each handle. Ure 1960, 216 notes that what remains of the one handle indicates that it was pointed (wish-bone shaped) at the centre as well as rounded in section. 2010.98.0344.jpg
71.12.5 Long, thin strigil steeply curved. The handle is thicker at the front and thinner at the back where it bends over to form an oblong. The thinner piece is not attached to the body but curves back on itself and end is a flat circle. 2004.95.0150.jpg

REDMG:1951.113.3 Rounded rim, slightly incurving, below which are attached two nearly triangular horizontal strap handles and ring base, canted slightly up; rounded body broadens slightly and then narrows to an angled ring foot, curved on the resting surface, and offset from the slightly convex underside. Body broader than standard Apulian shape, so that it can't fit easily into the sequence of Gnathian skyphoi.
REDMG:1951.135.1-2 Pyxis: Flanged rim widening to sharply curved shoulder, rounded below, and tapering to a flat base; round horizontal handles on either side pressed up against rim to form lugs. Lid: cylindrical knob attached to a disk. 2004.99.0432.jpg
REDMG:1951.147.1 Tall cylindrical neck offset from a squat body, with a curved shoulder, flange below the shoulder, concave side walls (offset at top and bottom), and a broader ring base, curved on the upper surface, with a broad resting surface, offset, slightly concave underside. From the front of the neck extends diagonally a tubular spout, squared at the end. From the back of the spout rises a high curving strap handle, rounded on the outside, which arches in a rectangular form, and descends sharply towards the lower part of the shoulder; which bends back on itself to attach to mouth and at the back to the lower part of the shoulder. Two moulded male heads, bearded, are found on either side of the upper handle attachment. 2005.99.0048.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.15 Trefoil lip attached at the the back to a broad, high curved strap handle that curves in slightly to the middle of the shoulder; short cylindrical neck joining stepped shoulder in a continuous curve; globular body curves into a short ring foot with diagonal resting surface and slightly concave underside.
REDMG:1953.25.4 Plain rim, below which are attached two horizontal round handles; curved sides, nearly vertical at the top and tapering more sharply towards the angled ring foot. Shape corresponds to Corinth black-glazed skyphoi, group iii, although the pattern on this skyphos is quite different. 2003.93.0325.jpg
