From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years. Ex Robert Haas collection.

Wheel-cut decorative patterns were used primarily on colorless glass vessels. The wheel cut lines vary in depth, width and length and may be rounded or v-shaped, and the most common form is a series of horizontal lines. The technique has been used since the Hellenistic period. Wheel-incised geometric patterns were especially popular in the fourth century.
AA32384. 3 clear faceted bowl shards, Choice, wheel cut lines, in rectangles with cross hatched sectioned, one 4.4 cm (1 3/4") and two 3.8 cm (1 1/2"); $40.00 (Ä34.00)


Roman, Tarsus, Cilicia, Green Lead Glazed Skyphos (Drinking Cup), c. 50 B.C. - 50 A.D.

Ex Royal-Athena Galleries, 1960's or earlier (with their tag on the bottom priced at $300); Ex Jerome Eisenberg, 1971. From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

Our skyphos appears to share the same glaze as a similar skyphos from Tarsus in the British Museum. The thick lead silicate glass glaze was used both on the interior and exterior but firing conditions resulted in the different interior and exterior colors. Because the glaze would bond to anything it touched in the kiln, these cups were fired upside down, supported by a tall stand with three long prongs which contacted only the interior bottom. The marks from the prongs can be seen inside. Click here to see the British Museum skyphos.

It was at Tarsus, during the same period this cup was made, that Cleopatra and Mark Antony held their celebrated feasts during the construction of their fleet (41 B.C.). Cups such as this were luxury items, suitable for such feasts.
