Forms - Summary Table (Tablewares, Cookwares, Utilitarian Wares)

This table provides an overview of the basic information regarding the forms that belong to the tableware, cookware, and utilitarian ware functional categories. An analogous summary for the sub-classes that belong to the transport amphora functional category will be presented in a separate table.

Each of the entries in the cells in the Form and Class columns - highlighted in blue – is linked to a record form for the specific item that it represents.

The data in the table can be reordered by sorting and selected for by filtering.

A sort can be performed on any of the columns in the table. To sort the records in a column in alphanumeric order, click the column heading. To reverse the order, click the column heading a second time. To undo a sort and return the table to the default ordering, click the Reset button.

A filter can be performed for the following columns: Class, Name(s) in Literature, Provenience - Region, Functional Category, Form Type, Function - Assumed. To filter, use one of the filter menus located in the area above the table. To filter on one of the columns for which the entry is selected from a fixed set of terms (Class, Form Type, Function - Assumed), scroll down the list and click the term on which you would like to filter, then click the Apply button. To filter on two or more of the terms, hold down the Control key, click each of the desired terms, then click the Apply button. To filter on one of the columns for which the entries are open format (Name(s) in Literature, Provenience - Region, Date Range), select the operator that you would like to employ by scrolling down the list of options in the upper box and clicking on it, type the text string on which you would like to filter in the lower box, then click the Apply button. For either type of entry, to undo the filter and return to the unfiltered table, click the Reset button.

For each of the forms included in the table there is a record form that contains more extensive information than that presented in the table. To access this form, click the entry for the desired form in the Form column. The record form is laid out in two columns, with the left-hand column presenting information that provides a rapid overview of the form and the right-hand column occupied by headings for several groupings of thematically related fields presented in collapsed view. To open any of these groupings, click the heading. To collapse an opened grouping, click the heading a second time. Entries in these fields that appear highlighted in blue are linked to a record for that item. Groupings and fields that contain no data for a particular form do not appear in the record form. To return to the table from the record form use the Back arrow.
