Matthew 26:6-7: And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on His head as He sat at the table.
Mark 14:3: And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head.

Luke 7:36-38: Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil.
John 12:3: Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.

Matthew and Mark say that the oil was poured on Jesus' head in the house of a leper, but Luke says that the oil was poured in the house of a Pharisee, and Luke and John say that the oil was poured on Jesus' feet.

Contradictions:
1. Oil poured in leper's house != Oil poured in Pharisee's house.
2. Oil poured on Jesus' head != Oil poured on Jesus' feet.

These may have been separate occasions.
