Items from numbered tombs in this Catalogue are numbered A1.1, B5 etc     

Uncertain tombs/surface finds

As already noted, approximately two-thirds of the items from Welch’s excavations cannot be assigned to a specific tomb. This group also includes some objects that may have been from settlement contexts, which fell into the burial chambers from a later stage, or which were picked up on the surface, such as the two moulds for metal implements. Given the difficulty of determining their original context, they are included in one group. Individual records suggest which items are more likely to derive from settlement contexts.

Items from uncertain tombs and surface finds in this Catalogue are numbered U.1U.57. 

Material from the cemetery at the mouth of the Pouzis river

Only a handful of items from this apparently quite productive cemetery can be now identified in the British Museum collection. However, other items of LBA date in the Dept of Greece and Rome collection acquired around this time, whose provenance is unknown, may well have come from this area. The two identifiable items are included in this Catalogue as M.17 and M.17.

Material from Arpera

A number of vases were given to the Museum by C.D. Cobham around the same time as Crowfoot’s excavations at Hala Sultan Tekke. Their exact provenance is not stated in the Register, but in the letter from Crowfoot to Murray mentioned above the District Commissioner describes very extensive excavations in the Arpera area from which he appears to have acquired some objects. The vases, a large Red Polished jug and a Red Polished pouring vessel in the shape of a deer, date to the EC III or early MC period, and may therefore come from this area, but this must remain a tentative suggestion. These are listed in the Catalogue as M.18 and M.19.
