A Mycenaean Terracotta Cup

The Mycenaean Terracotta Cup is an exceptional example of Early Greek antiques.  This one-handled cup includes delicately painted spirals.  The cup is made of a fine clay and the general shape indicates  that the artists were influenced by metal prototypes.

The cup has been beautifully preserved and is relatively rare.  It was produced between 1600 BC and 1200 BC, during a time of great cultural exchanges and contact.
