Silver-plated bronze replica of a silver plate crafted probably in Egypt (6th century). The central medallion is encircled by delicate acanthus leaves and bears a relief of a small Cupid riding a sea monster and holding a trident. Such silver plates, with subjects derived from Greek mythology and rendered in a style clearly influenced by Hellenistic art, were made for the sophisticated Byzantine aristocracy up until the 7th century.
