On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 166

These cups are an unusual variant among silver vessels of the Republican period, combining as they do Hellenistic Greek elements (the handle palmettes) with Roman traits (the form of the handles as well as the treatment of the interiors of the bowls).
