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
13.10.17 Barrel-shaped jug, deep-spreading lip, half has broken away. One handle, with a raised area along the middle. Clay on body rounded into a point in the middle of either side. 2003.92.0048.jpg
13.10.2 Nearly rectangular piece, lentoid in section, narrowing gradually on all sides, raised more prominently on one side, which has a ridge down the centre of the lower part. 2010.99.0129.jpg
13.10.26 Shallow bowl; horizontal rim with two holes for suspension at one side, one of the holes has a thin piece of rope in it (modern?)and clay; the base is slightly bulbous (the shape is slightly irregular leading to an incline of the rim to one side); interior smooth; 'ridges' can be felt on the exterior where the clay was turned on the potter's wheel; short, wide resting surface. 2003.92.0071.jpg
13.10.4A-B Two slightly concave disks, not joined (although they sit together well). The lid is thinner than the base with no significant rim, but a beveled edge. The mirror itself has a rim on the underside, and an offset edge on the upper part. These are clearly two parts of a Hellenistic mirror with lid, typical of Hellenistic cyprus. A pair of bronze plates could be locked together because one mirror had a low cylindrical rim into which the other, with a flanged edge, could be fitted. The inside mirror is decorated on the recessed side and polished on the flat side. The outside mirror is polished on the recessed side and sometimes decorated on the flat side. The two polished sides would then lie together, sometimes plated with silver (as in the case of an example in Amathus tomb 62, published in Excavations in Cyprus). For the Greek prototypes see See A. Schwarzmaier, Griechische Klappspiegel: Untersuchungen zu Typologie und Stil (Berlin 1997). 2010.99.0120.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.
