34.2.2 Small hydria with plain everted rim, with a round lip, curving continuously to a narrow concave neck and a sloping shoulder, then an ovoid body attached to a short disk foot, tapering on both exterior and interior, with a flat resting surface and a pointed underside. The vertical strap handle, slightly concave on its outer side, reaches from the lip to the widest part of the body, where it curves into the shoulder. Two horizontal d-shaped, upcurving handles, round in section, also rise up from the join of the shoulder and body. 2010.98.0285.jpg
34.8.12 The lid is three-stepped, with a flat disk-shaped surface on top of which there are two, concentric, conical areas and the handle, which is pear-shaped, with a button-like ending. The body is amphi-conical? But the upper surface is rounder and of a smaller diameter. The stem is slim and high, the foot is three-stepped and its bottom is a larger ring-shaped surface. Underneath, the surface is concave and conical. 2005.88.0067.jpg
37.11.8 The vessel has a rope handle at its back with a rotella (connects to the rim with a bit that looks like an anklebone). The other two handles are inclined upwards and of cylindrical shape. They are attached to the upper part of the body in two spots and they are riddled. The foot is quite tall and conical (widening towards the base). 2003.36.0007.jpg
45.10.1 High, curved, thick, black handle which bends back on itself to attach to mouth and at the back to the lower part of the shoulder. At the mouth attachment are two moulded heads; spout has central channel and two ridges at moulded rim. The cylindrical neck becomes bell shaped in its lower part, and a ridge marks its attachment to the shoulder, which is slightly concave. Beyond the handle attachment is a flat rim, offset from the shoulder and, more sharply, from the body beneath it, which is upright but slightly convex. The very short ring foot, with broad resting surface, is as broad as the rim around the shoulder. 2004.99.0028.jpg
49.8.2 The two-stepped handle has its upper part in the shape of echinus, while the lower part is a smaller, plastic ring. The body is conical and the rim is incurving. 2003.94.0065.jpg
51.7.7 Sessile kantharos, traditionally thought to be an imitation of the 'Saint-Valentin' class of ceramics (Beazley 1947, 219), although Robinson 1997 now says that it is derived from a metallic prototype. Quite standard among its class (Xenon Group kantharoi) in shape (and decoration). Rounded outturned rim, below which are attached two vertical strap handles, rejoined at a slight ledge between upper body and lower body; upper body near cylindrical, whereas lower body is a deep bowl; low flaring ring-foot, ridged on the exterior, with concave face on the interior continuously curving through the resting surface. 2003.93.0234.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.
70.3.1 Cf. "Sixth and Fifth Century Pottery", P.N.Ure (ed.), p51 shape class M (see also 'Comments') - although lip is slightly more protrusive than the type indicates as its norm. 2008.10.0045.jpg
78.12.17 'Cocked hat' lamp, Shallow bowl with one half of its rim folded in and pinched to form an open wick rest. Wide rim, base is uneven making lamp sit to left hand side. 2005.01.0099.jpg
L.2011.1.22 Stem of a glass vessel, with a ridge at the junction of the stem with the foot. The stem narrows in its middle part. The bowl seems to be wide, with a flat bottom. 2011.97.0128.jpg
L.2016.3.7 Heavy Alabaster lid with slightly uneven rounded knob, which leads to a short stem. The stem curves into the diagonal lid with rounded rim and short, broad flange, slightly narrowing to its bottom. The underside is concave at centre.
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:1953.25.26 Cup mouth with flat lip, slightly offset from narrow neck, which broadens to a nearly flat shoulder; thin strap handle rises from under the cup mouth and rejoins at the lower part of the shoulder; below carination is a conical body, with concave side walls, tapering down, and straightening out towards the small disk foot, flaring on its upper edge, rounded on its vertical edge, and with a broad, flat resting surface; nipple at the centre of the underside. 2003.93.0394.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.27 Narrow cylindrical neck, broadens to a nearly flat shoulder; thin strap handle rises from the top of the neck and rejoins at the lower part of the shoulder; below carination is a conical body, tapering and then straightening out towards the small disk foot, flaring on its upper edge, rounded on its vertical edge, and with a broad, flat resting surface; nipple at the centre of the underside. 2005.99.0085.jpg
REDMG:1961.199.1 Very narrow neck, from which loops up a small, narrow strap handle, which rejoins at the middle of the broad shoulder. The shoulder curves into a bulbous body, grooved just above a slightly raised base. The underside is slightly concave at its centre. Some circular ridges (comb ot wire marks) remain on the underside. 2004.99.0879.jpg
