Bronze kylix (drinking cup)


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The number of metal vases that has survived since antiquity is minimal because they were melted down to serve other purposes. The extant pieces are mainly of the Classical and Hellenistic periods, luxury tableware in bronze and silver. The shapes of drinking cups are particularly varied.
