Roman Drinking Cup with Dancers in Terra Sigillata
The magic of the ancient world
What unfolded when the dancers and whistle playing ladies depicted on this cup came to the table to entertain. Such cups were fashionable during the 1st century AD and give us a wonderful idea of how Roman life was. They were primarily used during festivals and were decorated with lively motifs, fitting to the feasts with wine, food, music and dance.
Story on dishes
Cups told stories, here, under a flower we see and feel dancers, musicians playing the tambourine, elegantly moving around to the rhythm and sound of the music. Then are there women, playing the harp and flute, together with the dancers. All representations are incredibly detailed. The garments in rich folds around the body of women and give a soft lightness and elegance to the motif of the cup.
