Curatorial note

This cup is of an unusual shape (compare example published in Notzie di Scavi, 1917, p.47, fig. 15). Cornelius Vermeule believed that it was probably of Italiote (Attic) origin e.g. made by a Greek (from Attica - the region of south-eastern Greece ruled by Athens in ancient times) inhabitant of Southern Italy in pre-Roman times.
