The inscription on this beaker, "Rejoice wherever you are", is more usually found on beakers with bulbous bodies (cf. lot 28), and thus this example with an ovoid body is exceedingly rare. It belongs to Harden’s Group G.1.iii, with the only similar example he listed being a beaker in the Musée départmental d’Antiquitiés at Rouen (inv. no. 501, Foy & Nenna, 2001, p. 178, no. 261). No further examples were included in Harden’s addendum of 1944 (p. 81-95), nor in McClellan’s additions of 1983 (pp. 76-8), but a third example of this type is in the Corning Museum of Glass (inv. no. 65.1.25; Whitehouse, 2001, pp. 25, no. 49).
In his discussion Whitehouse notes that the form resembles mould-blown beakers signed by three other glassmakers: Jason, Meges and Neikais. It is, however, much closer to a beaker excavated in 1982 from a tomb in the Agenda necropolis, Cadiz where Ennion’s signature replaces the Greek inscription in the upper band of this example (Lightfoot, 2014, pp. 108-9, no. 25).
