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
14.9.61 Small curved rim fragment. Underside has small ridge about halfway into the fragment to the inside of which the fragment has a pronounced change of angle. 2006.20.0320.jpg
2006.12.15 Ridge inside fragment and change in decoration suggests fragment is from neck of vessel 2007.30.0050.jpg
2007.9.9 Two straightish sides meet at an almost right-angle. Depending whether one looks at the outside or the inside of the fragment, there are a further one or two sides, due to the very uneven nature of the edge.
22.3.2 Inside conical 2003.97.0712.jpg
22.3.7 Stemless. Inside, deep concave rim, sharply marked off although the outside is an unbroken curve and does not follow contours of the inside. Groove separates the body from the short foot. 2003.30.0003.jpg
22.9.3 Cone shaped body. Vertical ring handles, ribbon. Broad duf-bottomed cap, spreading foot. Shallow depression inside in bottom (cf. CVA pl.19.1,2). 2003.29.0001.jpg

34.10.15 Gourd-shaped vessel, with an elongated ovoid body tapering into a cylindrical handle that finally terminates in elongated, rounded tip. Pierced in the bottom of the ovoid part, and ca. 2 cm from the tip. Use as a rattle is indicated by the sound of a pebble inside. 2004.95.0115.jpg

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
34.2.1 Shallow dish. Small well (approx 1.6cm) inside base of the foot 2003.16.0010.jpg

47.10.3A-B Lid: tall, conical, flat-topped knob on a sharply sloping conical lid, with plain rim, vertical profile, flat underside, leading to a short flange (0.3) to sit within lekanis. Lekanis: slightly everted, rounded rim with flat lip, on a deep bowl with straight walls in two parts, separated by a sharp carination near the bottom, attached to a short disk foot, angled on inside and out, with a slightly convex underside. From either side of the rim extends a semicircular horizontal handle, round in section, that rises very slightly, flanked by short pointed spurs or lugs on either side of the handle. 2010.98.0012.jpg
47.7.3 Inside, embedded in earth is a small, unpainted jug. 2003.26.0008.jpg
51.7.15 A small mouth, with flaring lip, on a short concave stem, is joined smoothly to a ring aryballos, rectangular in section, approximating a sharp-edged donut, with beveled edges on the inside. A short strap handle rises slightly from the rim and curves smoothly to adhere to the exterior surface of the aryballos. Ure 57: 'Rectangular in section, as is normal in Boeotia'; cf. P.N. Ure, Hesperia 15 (1946) 45-50. Small mouth and handle. Angular shape with side and edge flat 2004.06.0013.jpg
53.8.1 Mesomphalos phiale with a thickened rounded lip, with a slight carination on the inside edge, with convex walls, sloping down to a flat plate, at the centre of which is an omphalos (raised central boss), decorated in relief all around. 2010.98.0071.jpg
57.3.11 Fragment of a female head from large figurine, hollow inside. 2003.98.0069.jpg
68.12.2 Short cylindrical knob, flat-topped and double-recessed in centre. The short concave stem connects the cylinder to the short domed lid, in a continuous curve. Beyond a gouge the outer 1.8 cm of the lid becomes slightly concave and after two ridges terminates in a slightly rounded edge.The underside is hollowed just below the knob, and has a short flange intended to sits inside the rim of the pyxis to which it would have belonged. 2002.97.0272.jpg
79.1.2 Deep circular body with a large circular filling hole in the centre of the discus. Flat long nozzle with a small circular wick hole and a rounded tip. Circular raised foot, slightly concave with a ring in the middle. "Kick" on the inside at the bottom of the reservoir. 2005.01.0024.jpg
E.62.40 Three pieces. Lid is circular and flat with a central knob handle, also circular. Second piece is the ring which sits between lid and base and is circular with a central hole cut out and a rim on the underside so it sits in the base. Base is wide at shoulder and tapers to the bottom with smooth walls. At top is a slighlty raised rim to receive ring. Inside is a hollowed out cylinder, not to the contours of the outer wall. 2002.98.0008.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
L.2011.1.13 Central circular knob, with a round tip and a sort of carination in the edge, hollow in the underneath; rounded rim, hollow inside, connected to the knob by a quite sloping lid. 2011.97.0183.jpg
L.2011.1.58 Smooth outside, ridges on the inside. 2011.97.0012.jpg
L.2016.3.32 Small, relatively heavy metal horn; hollow inside. Moulded bulges line up along the curved body, probably to sketch the natural form, and lead to the rounded tip. Four holes surround the upper part of the horn (actually the end attached to the head). The horn ends with a flat rim.
REDMG:1926.99.60 Cup mouth, cylindrical neck, to which inside of handle is attached and rises, rejoining at the shoulder; body with straight sides descending from carination at bottom of shoulder; lower body curves in to join molded pedestal foot, with slightly sloping upper surface, scotia above torus on vertical surface, and flat underside. 2004.99.0943.jpg
REDMG:1935.87.1 Trefoil mouth at the back of which is attached an angular strap handle, that rises slightly and then descends sharply to join the lower shoulder; long neck that broadens gradually to a piriform body; short ring foot with rounded profile, flat resting surface, diagonal inside wall, and slightly convex underside. 2005.99.0060.jpg
REDMG:1951.143.1 Trefoil mouth at the back of which is attached a nearly L-shaped strap handle, that begins above the height of the mouth and descends to join the lower shoulder; short neck broadening to a piriform body, ribbed below the shoulder under shortly above the foot; short ring foot with flat resting surface, diagonal inside wall, and slightly convex underside. 2001.99.0005.jpg
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:1964.1670 Rounded everted rim; sides comprise two concave parts, the upper one larger; groove inside mouth, approximately 1.0 cm below rim; flat but uneven base with comb or wire marks. 2004.99.0081.jpg
