  • Middle Cypriote - Refers to the period from about 1900 to 1600 BCE on the island of Cyprus. The art of the period is characterized by a continuation of Early Cypriote styles including red-polished pottery and the production of flat painted or incised terracotta figurines some with modeled legs and arms.
  • sherds - Limited to fragments of pottery or glass.
  • slip - Fine clay which, when mixed with water, results in a fluid with a creamlike consistency, used in casting, glazing, decorating, and repairing ceramic wares; in its natural state, it contains sufficient flux to be used for glazing and decorating without the need of additives. For ceramic glaze with a high content of slip, use "slip glaze."
