11.10.21 If the foot is restored correctly this is a variant of Ure's type K 2 (Ure 1927, 68), which is the most common Haemonian skyphos, as judged by the Agora material: cf. Agora 23, 60, esp. no. 1516, pl. 103 (with the same type of foot); ABV 565-71, 598-710 Slightly concave black rim; shallow bowl with flat underside; moulded ring foot, with concave inner surface. 2008.99.0780.jpg
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 Åstrom'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
13.10.21 Course jug with fat body, thick rim. The single handle reaches from the neck beneath the rim to the shoulder of the jug. The neck is as wide as the mouth, then tapers inwards slightly to meet the body, the ring foot is short and quite wide. 2010.99.0070.jpg
13.10.24 Cylindrical alabastron, with rounded base, tapering at both ends, more sharply to the mouth; the shape, dimensions, and proportions are comparable to that of Ure 13.10.23, which is, however, complete. 2010.99.0061.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
13.10.3 Nearly rectangular piece, bilaterally symmetrical, with a raised rib down the centre, two parallel rivets, one on either side, at the shoulder, just above the tang (where the blade may have been socketed into a wooden handle. The thickness is uniform for most of the length of the dagger. ) 2008.99.0121.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
13.10.6 Flat bronze heart-shape piece, flaring at the pointed end, with a spool-shaped element (reel-shaped, according to Catling, as recorded in the Ure archives), horizontally arranged and attached at the centre of the upper part; Each end of the spool comprises a flat disk, while at the centre the surface is curved and narrower, so that a vertical space is revealed between the heart and the spool. 2008.03.0009.jpg

47.7.3 Inside, embedded in earth is a small, unpainted jug. 2003.26.0008.jpg
48.11.8 This shape was particularly popular at Agrigento, where many tombs contained one example (it is called 'brochetto attingitoio' or juglet for drawing liquids, comparable to the attic 'chous'): see especially Veder Greco, Contrada Mosè: 264 (tomb 3); Contrada Pezzino: 306 (tomb 582), 348 (tomb 238), 352 (tomb 779), 353 (tomb 1086), 354 (tombs 585 and 1147), and 355 (tomb 1225). Cf. also Lentini 61613/E (top half glossed) and 61569/B (smaller): Lagona 1973, 86-87 nos. 185 and 186, pl. 30. 2003.92.0398.jpg

49.12.1 Everted, nearly flat rim, with round lip, curves sharply to a cylindrical upper body, somewhat concave, separated from the lower body by a ridge above a flange. The lower body is comprised of four horizontal ribs, above a shallow bowl that narrows to a thin, short stem, that curves continuously into a conical foot, finishing with a broad groove above a rounded edge. The underside is hollowed. Two strap handles, which flare on either side, rise up above the rim and then descend to rejoin the body at the flange. A spur projects from the lower part of each handle, approximately in the middle of the upper body. 2008.98.0387.jpg
49.4.1 The mouth is conical, with a large aperture, the handle is banded and the foot is two-stepped and disk-shaped, with a small central concave dot underneath. 2005.88.0081.jpg

50.4.14 Gill classes it as a kantharos of the 'Ampurias class'. Sessile kantharos with low handles. Sparkes 1968, 9, notes that the sessile kantharos with low handles is the most practical, albeit least elegant, of the fifth century kantharoi. Slightly outturned, rounded rim; tall, flaring wall, offset from shallow rounded bowl, divided from moulded ring foot by groove. Two vertical strap handles loop down from rim down to just above junction of wall and bowl. 2003.92.0162.jpg
50.4.17 Rim flat. Profile of upper half concave; moulded fillet between that and lower half. Foot is grooved and base is depressed. 2010.98.0045.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
50.4.19 The shape is nearly identical to that of a smaller lekythos from the Pantanello Necropolis at Metaponto, published by M. Elliott in Carter 1998, 2.684-85 SL10 (T 128-3), although the ribbing is more akin to that found on Pantanello SL9 (T 126-9). Cf. also Sicilian examples from Agrigento (especially AG 1331: de Miro 1962, 137, fig. 41c). See also 'comments' below. 2003.37.0082.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' 2003.92.0306.jpg
50.4.23 Circular deep body with a small convex shoulder. Discus is concave with a small filing hole off centre and a small protruding nodule also off centre; this is probably the remains of a suspension lug.
