Skyphos

The classic shape of this skyphos, a two-handled drinking cup from the First Century, reflects the metal prototypes of the period.  The body, thinly blown, has straight sides, an out-turned rim and applied ring base.  The elaborate handles have finger rests at both top and bottom and were angled for ease in drinking.  The skyphos has been repaired.  It was found in Turkey.

H: 8 cm

Date: First Century A.D.

Constable Maxwell # 68
