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
13.10.24 Cylindrical alabastron, with rounded base, tapering at both ends, more sharply to the mouth; the shape, dimensions, and proportions are comparable to that of Ure 13.10.23, which is, however, complete. 2010.99.0061.jpg
13.10.5 Hexagonal fragment perhaps broken at both ends. Dagger with angular shoulder and straight butt; ogival outline, lower end flattened. 2008.09.0013.jpg
2006.12.27 Cylindrical. Tapers outward at both ends, with two wider ridges at once end 2007.03.0512.jpg
2008.7.118 Cylindrical tapered at both ends and pierced through the centre.
50.12.51 Fragment almost cylindrical, but pointed at both ends.
50.4.25 Circular body, concave discus with a circular filling hole to the frontal left hand side. Flat nozzle with concave sides and single ended volutes, the tip is splayed and ends in an obtuse angle, the wick hole is circular. There is a base demarcated but not raised, the base is slightly concave. 2001.99.0018.jpg
E.62.22 Oblong in shape and is almost flat except at the ends of the teeth which taper. Double edged with narrow teeth, close fitting at one end and wider teeth with larger gaps at the other. There are 42 narrow teeth and 10 wide teeth. 2005.89.0039.jpg
E.62.42 Long and thin, with rounded ends and flat base.
L.2016.3.10 Miniature dimension. Round, outwards bulged ceramic disc, with very slightly everted, rounded rim and a moulded face at centre of the exterior. A small curved handle, running in a straight line, is attached to the rim and ends at the back side of the left forehead area and the right chin area.
L.2016.3.32 Small, relatively heavy metal horn; hollow inside. Moulded bulges line up along the curved body, probably to sketch the natural form, and lead to the rounded tip. Four holes surround the upper part of the horn (actually the end attached to the head). The horn ends with a flat rim.
REDMG:1935.87.29 Stemless. Two handles, one either side from well below the rim are bent up at the ends. Shallow body descending to a groove and then a rounded footring.
REDMG:1953.25.32 Kalathos-shaped body, with a flaring rounded rim, to the top of which are attached the looped ends of a pair of strap handles, concave on their exterior surfaces; the tubular ends of the loops rejoin the middle of each handle, and below the bottom of each handle, attached at the bottom of the cup, is a spur. Below a carination, the bottom of the cup narrows to a nearly cylindrical stem, ridged at the center, below which it widens, and smoothly curves into the top of a moulded foot, with three ridges, of increasing diameter, on the exterior surface. Within the narrow resting surface is a concave underside, with a conical hollow at centre. 2005.89.0006.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.34 The vessel presents a rounded belly with a very narrow neck, which ends in a flat rim with a inner lip that would prevent the liquid from falling. 2005.02.0007.jpg
