Tazza bowl

Description
This ancient Greek bowl is recorded in the museum catalogues as being a funerary tazza, a shallow bowl used by mourners and in burials. On the underside of the vessel the collector has written ‘From Cumae excav, 1901, Italy’. The label on the inside of the bowl reads ‘Cumae III’ and was probably placed there soon after it was excavated.
