14.9.109 Deep Acrocup (belongs to the Acropolis Group of Bloesch, Formen, 161 ff.); slightly offset rim with heavy moulding at the top of rim; ridge at the top of the low stem. Base is concave. 2003.30.0009.jpg
44.1.2 'Little lion' shape. Ure 1927, 54: 'Rhitsona Class P'; Haspels ABL 107: 'Little Lion Group'. Shallow mouth. Thin neck. Very thin disk foot. Base concave. 2003.11.0097.jpg
50.10.1 Coldstream (79) classes this amphora as part of the 'plump and ungainly group' of LG IIb amphorae whose potters modelled amphora bodies after those of pitchers (see J.M. Cook, BSA 42, 151). Flaring mouth with rounded, thickened rim; two vertical strap thick handles extend from the top of the decorative zone on the neck down to the bottom of the decorative zone on the shoulder; rounded body tapers to a ring foot. Flat underside 2003.95.0091.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' 2003.92.0308.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. 2003.97.0936.jpg
69.7.1 Foot-shaped aryballos; Dohan Morrow's Group II, 'network sandals' (Dohan Morrow 1985, 6-9) or Ducat's type B foot-shaped vases (Ducat 1966, 182-84). Foot-shaped aryballos with a broad rim, short vertical strap handle, squared, offset neck; the body of the vase in the shape of a left foot, including ankle, with relief decoration that gives the effect of a sandal enclosing it, and a flat, reserved base. 2005.88.0054.jpg
E.23.42.1-4 Group of four red beads, unattached but found together. Two are long and thin, one is a shallow but complete circle and the fourth is an incomplete circle and thick.
REDMG:1942.5.6.2 Small trefoil oinochoe, group iii. Pinched trefoil mouth from which rises at the back a high swung strap handle that rejoins the body above the middle; small indentation on lower part of handle; short, wide neck that curves continuously into the baggy body; short, plain ring foot, slightly concave on underside, with central nipple.
REDMG:1953.25.16 Trefoil mouth at the back of which is attached a hook-shaped round handle that begins above the height of the mouth and turns back to join the shoulder, with a slight spur; short neck curving into a baggy body in a continuous curve; short ring foot with narrow, rounded resting surface, diagonal inside wall, and pointed underside. Handle attachment is indicative of the Dotted Spray Group 2005.99.0090.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.30 White-ground lekythos, group iii. Conical mouth with flat rim, slightly offset from cylindrical neck which curves sharply into nearly diagonal shoulder; vertical strap handle (missing) reached from top of neck to bottom of the shoulder, below which a carination marks the join with the straight body that tapers down to a high, molded, pedestal foot, grooved at the top of the slightly convex vertical surface, concave on the underside, with a nipple at the centre.
REDMG:1953.25.4 Plain rim, below which are attached two horizontal round handles; curved sides, nearly vertical at the top and tapering more sharply towards the angled ring foot. Shape corresponds to Corinth black-glazed skyphoi, group iii, although the pattern on this skyphos is quite different. 2003.93.0325.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.48 Deep round mouth with concave lip, slightly overhanging, attached to a high swung vertical strap handle, which reattaches at the shoulder. Below the mouth is a short neck with a ridge, a globular body, slightly flattened, and a low, sharply angled ring foot. Corinth round-mouthed oinochoe, type A, group i: see Corinth 13, 131 fig. 14, 134.
REDMG:1953.25.50 Deep round mouth with concave lip, slightly overhanging attached to a high swung vertical ribbed handle, which reattaches at the shoulder. Below the mouth is a short neck with a ridge, a globular body, slightly flattened, and a low, sharply angled foot, with a flat base. Corinth round-mouthed oinochoe, type A, group i: see Corinth 13, 131 fig. 14, 134. 2004.95.0163.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.59 Deep round mouth with rounded rim, concave, slightly overhanging lip, attached to a high swung vertical strap handle, which reattaches at the shoulder.

REDMG:1964.1649 White-ground lekythos, group iii. Tall cylindrical neck broadening to a diagonal shoulder. Vertical strap handle rises from top of neck to bottom of the shoulder, where it broadens. Below the handle attachment a carination marks the join with the straight body, which narrows at the base to a molded pedestal foot with a slightly concave outer edge, convex underside, indented in the centre.
