Thessaly, early 3rd c. BC

Kantharos that probably constitutes part of the "Thessaly Treasure" together with a group of gold jewellery and coins. The incised jewel with the guilloche motif surrounding the edge is a constant decorative type in a group of early Hellenistic silver vases from Macedonia, Thrace and southern Russia. This feature, as well as the kantharos shape reminiscent of the known forms of early Hellenistic pottery, date this pot to the early 3rd c. BC. Inv. No. 1559
