The band-cup was produced concurrently with the lip-cup. The two shapes are often designated "Little Master cups," owing to their small scale. Some artists, such as Tleson and his painter-collaborator, worked on both shapes. the ban-cup is a darker vase than the lip cup, with the decoration confined to a clay-colored zone between the handles. The motifs, however, tend to be similar.
