Registration numbers

The following is a list of all the registration numbers referring to
material from Maroni and its environs in the British Museum.

1876,11-14.5: Roman-period glass vessel with a Greek inscription purchased from Luigi Palma di Cesnola, said to come from a tomb near Maroni.

1881,8-24.47, 49: Two pottery jugs excavated in the Mari area by Max Ohnefalsch-Richter on behalf of Charles Newton. (More items in this sequence may derive from this campaign but their findspot is not documented). 

1889,10-15.1–14: Gems and other items purchased from Charles Christian, said to come from the Mari area according to the GR Registers, though the relevant letters only confirm this provenance for a number of items. Some items however, such as the lead curse inscriptions, probably came from Amathus, so the Mari provenance of the whole group is uncertain

1898,2-25.2: Chlorite stamp seal purchased from William Talbot Ready, said to come from Maroni
