A hand-modeled striking ball is attached, with a thin piece of jute string, knotted through the top hole and lowered through the bottom hole. 2005.02.0295.jpg
56.8.5 Conical, almost acorn shaped knob sits on rounded ring; lid curves down to a ridge; broad, flat edge 2003.92.0217.jpg

The underside is slightly hollowed under the knob. Lekanis: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls, slightly carinated and narrowing, with convex lower portion, to a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, curved on the underside, with a rounded point at the centre. A wishbone handle rises from the top of the wall, on either side; a lug protrudes from either side of each handle. Ure 1960, 216 notes that what remains of the one handle indicates that it was pointed (wish-bone shaped) at the centre as well as rounded in section. 2002.97.0575.jpg
61.6.5 Lid: Short button knob, with flat band, beveled interior edge, and slightly convex top, curving smoothly to a nearly flat underside that smoothly joins a short, slightly concave stem, that again smoothly joins a flat, tapering smoothly to a short vertical rim, rounded at both edges. The underside is hollowed under the knob. One-handler: shallow bowl with a short nearly vertical flange, rounded at the lip, straight but tapering walls curving into a convex lower portion then a very short stem, on a rounded disk foot, with a flat resting surface, beveled on the interior, and slightly convex on the underside.

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
68.12.3 Pomegranate shaped knob, with small hole in the recess at the top, smoothly attached to a short stem, slightly concave, that spreads to a short domed lid, which in turn spreads to a flat rim with sharp beveled edge, slightly thicker underside, smoothly turned to a tapered flange with a rounded edge. Hollowed, round, smooth underside. 2008.99.0609.jpg
73.10.1 Tall knob, circular in section, flat at top except for a grooved section; knob which narrows then widens to a carination towards the bottom, and narrows again to the join with the concave lid. Flanged rim. 2005.89.0024.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.
