34.10.8 Short cylindrical knob, with grooved flat top, grooved profile, and conical stem broadening to the slightly domed top of the lid. At the midpoint of the lid, beyond a gentle groove and a ridge, the lid flares to a rounded edge, the underside of which narrows to a tapering straight sided walls that would have sat inside the vase to which it belonged (perhaps a stamnos). The underside of the lid is hollowed, rounded, and smooth. 2008.98.0478.jpg
67.7.2 Outturned rim; long, thin, roughly rendered neck; inverted oviod body tapering smoothly into thin stem slightly shorter than neck; flares out to flat base.
70.3.3 Ian McPhee describes it as a Kotyle rather than Skyphos type c (?). Tapering ring base, rounded at the bottom, from which the body rises in a sharp diagonal, curving sharply approximately at the halfway point, from which it rises near vertically and eventually flares slightly to a plain, rounded rim, just below which are attached two horse-shoe shaped handles, almost round in cross section. 2008.98.0449.jpg
E.23.29 Fragment which takes the shape of cylinder that flares to a flat base with inscription. It is thought that objects like this were part of the facade of 18th Dynasty Theban tomb chapels. Inscriptions on objects of this type normally include the name and title of owner, although the hieroglyphs on this piece are confused. 2007.01.0076.jpg

E.63.28 The lip is narrow, no neck and a weak shoulder. The body flares to the widest point in the lower half of the jar just above the foot. The widest point tapers to the foot, which is approximately 1cm in height with a flat base. 2002.98.0180.jpg
