This small skyphos cup (GR.54.1865) was found at a classical cemetery at Kranioi in Cephalonia, a Greek Island near Corinth, Greece and dates from 500 B.C. — 401 B.C. A skyphos is a deep-bowled drinking vessel with a low foot and two short handles, and these minature versions are found in Corinthian pottery production during this period. These cups are often found at sanctuaries, suggesting their use as votive offerings throughout the region.
This 3D model was made as part of the #CEEF3D project at the Fitzwilliam Museum, in connection to Being an Islander: Art and Identity of the large Mediterranean Islands.
