View Categories Home > Catalog > |Greek Coins| > |Greek Antiquities| > AG30977Greek Bronze (Krater) Handle, Ornamented With a Panther Head, c. 400 B.C. The Panther was the companion of Bacchus. This handle was probably once attached to a krater, a punch-bowl type vessel used for diluting and serving wine. The earliest kraters were bronze and almost exclusively the volute-type. Very few bronze kraters have survived. Most often only the handles remain.
