Spartan Gold Vapheio Cup
Elevate your decor with classical antiquity art styles, and transform any space into your own private history museum with this impressive replica of an Ancient Greek Gold Cup found in the Vapheio tholos tomb in Lakonia, near Sparta.
One-handled cups with flaring straight sides are a common type of early Mycenaean cup. This gold example bears a remarkable decoration, which covers its entire surface. A bull is captured by peaceful means: a man ties a rope around the bull's leg, while the animal mates with a cow; three grazing bulls complete the composition.
Dated to the 15th century BC. National Archaeological Museum of Athens.
