Silver-gilt bowl


Not on view

The decoration of this bowl consists entirely of animals. In the tondo, there is a bull; in the inner frieze, seven grazing horses. The outer frieze shows cows and calves, mares and foals, and a horse, separated by papyrus. The bowl is distinguished not only by its iconography but also by the stippled quality of much of the chasing.
