Did you know?

Band cups feature figural decoration only within a reserved band aligned with the handles.


The two sides of this drinking cup are nearly identical, each with a reserved band holding a grazing stag between two panthers. A single palmette appears on either side of each handle, while a reserved circle inside the bowl holds a dot within concentric circles.
