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
51.7.7 Sessile kantharos, traditionally thought to be an imitation of the 'Saint-Valentin' class of ceramics (Beazley 1947, 219), although Robinson 1997 now says that it is derived from a metallic prototype. Quite standard among its class (Xenon Group kantharoi) in shape (and decoration). Rounded outturned rim, below which are attached two vertical strap handles, rejoined at a slight ledge between upper body and lower body; upper body near cylindrical, whereas lower body is a deep bowl; low flaring ring-foot, ridged on the exterior, with concave face on the interior continuously curving through the resting surface. 2003.93.0234.jpg
69.7.1 Foot-shaped aryballos; Dohan Morrow's Group II, 'network sandals' (Dohan Morrow 1985, 6-9) or Ducat's type B foot-shaped vases (Ducat 1966, 182-84). Foot-shaped aryballos with a broad rim, short vertical strap handle, squared, offset neck; the body of the vase in the shape of a left foot, including ankle, with relief decoration that gives the effect of a sandal enclosing it, and a flat, reserved base. 2005.88.0054.jpg
79.1.7 Shallow circular body. Flat nozzle with concave sides, large round wick hole and a rounded tip. Concave discus and wide ring base. Small filling hole, just off centre probably due to decoration. 2008.99.0765.jpg
E.23.32 Undulating lip, long neck, bulbous shoulder tapering to a pointed base. Two opposing handles emerge on the sholder just below the band decoration. 2002.98.0198.jpg
E.63.6 Small blue figure of the god Ptah (Specifically Ptah-Sokar, a combination of the creator god Ptah and the falcon headed god of the dead Sokar). The ponytail of the figure is looped in such a way that it would enable threading. The figure is squat and is naked aside from some neck decoration and a loin cloth. The figure stands on a flat oval base. 2007.99.0065.jpg
