Gold cup, body beaten out from single piece of metal. With sub-conical body tapering to an omphalos base; the rim is flaring; the single rivetted strap handle links the rim to the mid carination. The rivet plates are lozenge shaped and the handle has decorative ridges parallel with its hour-glass shaped sides. Most of the body, both the neck and lower, is corrugated with continuous horizontal ribs. Above and below are plain zones, but just before the rim there is a single row of pointille punched from the outer surface.
