- Curator's comments
British Museum 1888,0601.569.g probably belongs to this cup.
Kinch places the cup within his Group B 2.α.
Heavy traces of wear on the underside of the foot and inside the bowl suggest a prolonged used of this vessel.
Possibly from the same vessel as British Museum 1888,0601.573.a.
