An interesting object, this lead vessel is decorated with a raised narrative scene, possibly mythological in nature. It would appear that some form of celebration on going on, for figures can be seen to be dancing to a man playing an aulos, a double reeded flute, popular in ancient Greece. This decoration could be suggestive of the vessels use, for the storage of wine. Being made of lead, however, makes it very rare indeed. - (RP.200)
