A Middle Persian inscription on the inside of the foot reads, ‘307 [denar] in weight’. The engraving was too thin to be picked up by the scan.
You can see a 3D model printed from this scan in an exhibition in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, from Oct 19th 2017 - Feb 18th 2018.
A short series of videos documenting the making of the scan and model is available here: https://empiresoffaith.com/exhibition/the-khosro-cup/
