Drinking Vessel


Currently not on display


Mug, varefully made with thin walls and a flat base. Wide shoulder and mouth with thin, everted rim. Separate, solid-cast handle, soldered (either original, or a very exact modern repair) at rim and body, ending in a leaf-shaped base. Upper part of leaf shape is covered with punched circles above a horizontal line. This simple drinking mug is an example of the "Sant’Anatolia type" and is less common than the extravagantly curved version, inspired by Attic ceramic vases of c. 430 - 420 BC.
