Bronze bowl (dinos), dating to about 450-425 BC. The rim is inscribed 'I am one of the prizes of Argive Hera'. Such bowls were commonly given as prizes at athletic and equestrian competitions, sometimes complete with the stand.
The body of the dinos is hammered from one sheet of bronze; the rim with its pattern of tongues and dots was cast on to it using the lost wax technique. The large tongues that decorate the shoulder of the vessel were incised cold.
