23.11.31UU Two fragments of a female. She wears a sash, knotted at the front with a bow, over a long skirt patterned with vertical bands of single- and double-line zigzags. Her right hand is holding a plate or dish. 2005.06.0132.jpg
47.2.21 Bell, with a rounded lower edge, narrowing sharply and then tapering slowly to a rounded shoulder, where it is attached to a round knob, hollowed on one side, thickened on the other, pierced with a hole; there is another hole in the top of the bell, just below the hollowed part of the knob. 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
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
REDMG:1950.25.1 Type 8B oinochoe. Wide mouth with rounded, slightly overhanging rim flaring out from a broad neck, attached sharply to the top of the barrel-shaped body, with a moulded ring foot, with a vertical upper part and a grooved, slightly broadening lower part; narrow, flat resting surface; slightly concave underside. Two-piece handle, knotted at the top, splays at the attachment to the rim. 2003.93.0334.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:1953.25.55 Wide flaring mouth with rounded rim; short neck narrowing to sharp join to an ovoid body that tapers sharply at the bottom to a flat base; grooved just above the base. Two-piece strap handle splays at the attachment to the rim and rejoins the shoulder (for handle cf. RM.1950.25, which is, however, knotted). 2003.93.0301.jpg
REDMG:1953.25.99 Standing female figure, drapery knotted round hips, leaving one leg bare, and falling on left shoulder. Back plain, with hole for suspension. On right side, amphora with ridged neck. 2003.93.0107.jpg
