14.9.114 Lower half of a figurine (joins Reading 14.9.115), preserving the legs and lower torso of a nude boy, some drapery (a cloak) behind him that is twisted around his right hand, and the rectangular base on which he stands. 2002.97.0408.jpg
34.10.27 Standing male figure in a cloak with his legs crossed, leaning on a support to his right. Figurine is hollow and has large hole in the back. No relief sculpture on the reverse side. 2005.89.0041.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
E.23.34 Seated figurine of Horus on a solid square base. Horus' two arms run parallel to the thighs and the feet; his plaited side lock over his right shoulder denotes childhood. The base has a short nodule attached to the back of it. 2008.08.0072.jpg
E.63.15 The god Horus seated, with plaited side lock and finger on his chin. The figure is completely naked. A uraeus adorns the head. The feet of the figure are attached to a solid, square copper base. 2007.01.0108.jpg
L.2016.3.31 Ceramic figure of a camel, with raised head and straight posture. He is slightly craning his straightened head upwards, so that his broad neck is a little bent backwards. His eyes appear to be triangular but the iris is round. The mouth is slightly open. The saddle is just schematically depicted with a broad band surrounding the humps, both slightly tapering; the back hump is bent to the left, the front hump to the right. The tail leads down closed to his left leg. His legs are long and thin. There is a hole at the bottom of his rounded belly.
