The cup with a short stem and single, high handle is typically Etruscan. It served as a ladle or dipper. Like the Nicosthenic amphora, this shape was taken into the Attic ceramic repertoire in the second half of the sixth century B.C. and produced for export to Etruria. The name given to the shape is that of the Greek variety.
