27.4.5 Rim turns sharply out, broad and flat on top. Handles rounded at far end and with upward twist. In centre of bowl a well 1.5 cm deep occupies the space interior of the stem. The foot appears in three stages, the first ridge being the narrowest, and the other two getting bigger in sequence. 2003.19.0007.jpg
50.4.22 The bowl is a variant of Hoffmann's shape III (see H. Hoffmann, Tarentine Rhyta [Mainz 1966] 2) but the bowl is unusually aligned with the animal head. The Reading example corresponds to Hoffmann's 'main group' of Tarentine ram's-head rhyta, and particularly to his group E, which is 'the first wholly naturalistic representation of the ram-head', which he ascribes to the 'hand of Coroplast Beta' 2003.92.0306.jpg
