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
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
59.6.3 Single but ornate handle that has pointed oval at bottom, two moulded lines towards top and a piece that curves up separate to the main handle in a 'cobra-like' strike pose. The main piece of the handle extends along rim of vessel in a leaf-like shape with notches in the edges. Mouth is wide and has small rim. Outside body is marked with 4 pairs of incised bands around its sides. Small curve at side of foot. Base is flat but has 6 incised concentric circles and a central sunken dot.
60.8.3A-B Lid: three tiered round knob with central, nearly conical well; short concave stem curving above and below into knob and lid; nearly flat lid tapering gently to a short vertical rim, rounded at both edges. The underside is slightly hollowed under the knob. Lekanis: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls, slightly carinated and narrowing, with convex lower portion, to a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, curved on the underside, with a rounded point at the centre. 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. 2002.97.0575.jpg Very uneven in shape. Surface left very rough. The lip is uneven, leading into a very open interior which is widest at the mouth. The body is rough, while the base is also roughly made with no smooth finish to the edges. 2008.99.0481.jpg
61.6.5 Lid: Short button knob, with flat band, beveled interior edge, and slightly convex top, curving smoothly to a nearly flat underside that smoothly joins a short, slightly concave stem, that again smoothly joins a flat, tapering smoothly to a short vertical rim, rounded at both edges. The underside is hollowed under the knob. One-handler: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls curving into a convex lower portion then a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, beveled on the interior, and slightly convex on the underside. A single, recurved horizontal handle, round in section, rises above the rim. 2002.97.0677.jpg
79.1.8 Small circular body with a convex shoulder and a small concave discus with an irregular filling hole at the centre. Nozzle is slightly arched and splayed at the tip with concave edges and an obtuse tip. Wick hole is oval. base is a concave small demarcated circle with a circle within. 2005.01.0029.jpg
91.12.1 Ovaloid ball, pierced through left and right edges 2006.20.0031.jpg
E.23.14 Slate palette, flat and smooth in the shape of a birds head (?). More recognisable in the shape of a 'boomerang'. The palette thins towards the edges. Hole in the arc for suspension. Edges are not sharp but curved. 2006.20.0111.jpg
E.65.11 Not perfectly round but still circular. Widest from side to side. Has a rectangular extension at base so that the object would have sat in the handle. Flat and thin with slightly sloped edges to avoid making them sharp. 2008.08.0017.jpg
