Cup

Description
This is a stemless kylix, a shallow black-glazed drinking cup with two handles at either side of the bowl. Inside is a stamped palmette decoration arranged in a circle at the bottom of the bowl. The join between the bowl and the foot of the cup is defined by an unglazed groove. The inside of the foot is unglazed, but decorated with two black painted concentric circles. The vessel was found in Cyprus but the style is ancient Greek.
