Pottery. Intact except that some bronze studs are missing. Medium fine fabric, grey at core, red to brown surface. Handmade. Good polish. High handle with strut, transverse grooves on inner face and horns. Offset rim. Four vertical ridges on the outside of the cup extending from handle and from three knobs on the shoulder to foot. Chief ornament of the cup is achieved by round bronze studs: 5 on floor of cup above foot; row on the shoulder; 16 arranged on the handle - all in imitation of rivets of bronze vases.
