27.4.1 Deep ovoid bowl with concave rim and rounded lip, narrowing to a disk foot, rounded on the exterior, sharply beveled on the interior, with a flat resting surface and a slightly convex underside. On either side a u-shaped handle, round in cross-section, rises up from just below the rim, top the height of the lip. There is a slight groove at the join of body and foot. 2010.98.0197.jpg

50.4.18 Nearly identical to a lidded mug excavated from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by Maria Elliott, in Carter 1998 2.643, fig. 14.2, 667 M3 (T 128-2): the Pantanello mug, which Elliott describes as an 'odd mug' and probably a local imitation of the late 5 c. Attic double handle mug (667), has a knotted handle which is otherwise similar to ours in contour and thickness. For less close comparanda cf. Morel 1981, type 5345a (citing examples from Capua and environs, e.g. CVA Capua 3, Italia 1312 no. 2: less squat, but similar); these Campanian examples are dated to ca. 300. Convex lip with rounded outturned rim, to which is joined a vertical strap handle, tripartite, with two projections on either side of the rim attachment. The handle loops and reattaches at the top of the bulging, ribbed body (ribbing visible on the interior). Tall angled ring foot, the interior of which has an incised spiral (not visible on exterior). 2010.98.0291.jpg

From the shoulder, on either side, rises an m-shaped handle (half of one chipped off) with short projections in the middle. Three holes (to enable air flow) are drilled into the upper part of the stand, just below the join. 2002.97.0369.jpg
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
51.7.7 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

Two u-shaped handles, round in cross section, rise from the upper part of the body to the height of the rim. 2010.98.0213.jpg
