Although the body of this cup is ancient, its handles and figural decoration are modern.
This vessel began as an authentic drinking cup in the ancient Greek city of Corinth. Originally bearing no figural decoration, it was given new handles and animal friezes in a style recalling that of ancient Corinthian artists. The modern decorator was prolific enough that scholars have recognized their hand, coining the name “Shoe Lane Painter” after a street in Athens where many such vases were sold.
