45.9.2 Flat-lipped conical mouth, vertical strap handle rising from the bottom of the neck and reattached at the top of the 'ankle' on the body, which is in the shape of a left foot wearing a sandal. The base is a flat surface, separated from the sole by an incised line. 2011.98.0081.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. Convex lip with rounded outturned rim, to which is joined a vertical strap handle, tripartite, with two projections on either side of the rim attachment. The handle loops and reattaches at the top of the bulging, ribbed body (ribbing visible on the interior). Tall angled ring foot, the interior of which has an incised spiral (not visible on exterior). 2010.98.0291.jpg
59.6.3 Single but ornate handle that has pointed oval at bottom, two moulded lines towards top and a piece that curves up separate to the main handle in a 'cobra-like' strike pose. The main piece of the handle extends along rim of vessel in a leaf-like shape with notches in the edges. Mouth is wide and has small rim. Outside body is marked with 4 pairs of incised bands around its sides. Small curve at side of foot. Base is flat but has 6 incised concentric circles and a central sunken dot.
71.12.6 Wide strigil curved in a tight arc. Handle is square and thinner on the back than the front as it bends over to make an oblong shape. The handle adjoins the strigil in a long triangular point with an incised line acting as a border. 2011.98.0027.jpg
79.1.5 Circular body with convex shoulder and a concave discus with small filling hole. Small raised protruding foot with flat base. Large vertical handle with one incised line along the length of it and a second band laying across the handle at the highest point, also with an incision along it. Long spout with irregular splayed tip, large oval wick hole. joining lines of the handle and the nozzle are apparent. 2005.01.0336.jpg
E.62.44 Lid is oval with a central circular knob and traces of an incised band on top. (Lid is missing!) Body has a flat rim, same shape and size as lid so they sit together, but with a central circular opening. Thin neck leading to shoulders. Four oblong feet at each 'corner' and the base between is flat. Flat rim on top of body is reserved. The inside is a cylindrical well, not matching the contours or shape of the outside. Heavy object.
E.62.8 Deep sided bowl with curved sides and no significant base meaning bowl is slightly unsteady. There are two incised bands on the outer surface around the rim and a more significant ridge on the inside where bronze has been folded over to make a smooth and safe edge. 2005.88.0070.jpg
E.63.10 Miniature papyrus sceptre worn as a pendant (suspension hole at top). Zig zags taper to the main body the top of which is decorated with four incised lines. The body swells and then tapers to a pointed base. 2002.98.0952.jpg
REDMG:1951.132.1 Guttus type askos: swelling rounded body with bearing at the top a large relief medallion (frontal female mask with puffed cheeks and a lock of hair knotted over the forehead) offset and raised from the body; at a distance of ca. 0.5 cm are two incised lines beyond which the body is covered with fine vertical fluting down to its midpoint. A long diagonal spout with slightly concave sides rises obliquely from the shoulder below the medallion, and terminates in a three-stepped flanged mouth. A loop handle (semicircular in cross section) rises from the shoulder at a right angle to the spout. A tall thick foot, offset from the body, with a ridge at the halfway point broadens toward a ring base, slightly rounded on the exterior, with a concave underside offset from a concave element within the narrow resting surface. The foot is particularly tall, and is ridged in the middle: otherwise in shape this askos corresponds to Morel's type 8141h 1 (Morel 1981, pl. 209). 2004.99.0752.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.38 Lekanis: slightly everted rim with diagonal flange, curves in to a shallow bowl; two flanged ribbon handles, attached horizontally just below rim; pronounced ring foot with vertical sides and raised underside. Lid: Moulded knob with deep circular depression; in centre of sloping lid, which steps down with three fasciae and then a convex lower part decorated with two incised bands; rounded rim. 2003.93.0102.jpg
