The chalice is a characteristic Etruscan shape that, in an early type of the seventh century B.C., had caryatid figures supporting the bowl. Even without these embellishments, the chalice was produced in a considerable variety of forms. This example is articulated with horizontal lines in low relief. Additional examples are exhibited in the Etruscan Gallery on the Mezzanine.
