- Curator's comments
- This bronze stamnos (a type of vessel used for mixing wine) is one of a pair found with two bronze flagons at Basse-Yutz, Lorraine, France in 1927 (Flagons: 1929,0511.1 and 2; Stamnoi: 1929,0510.1 and 1929,0511.3). It seems likely that this assemblage of vessels came from a grave.
