This beaker belongs to a rare series of tall mould-blown beakers, still to be studied comprehensively, that curve in above the tooled base, and are decorated variously with ovals, peltas, ivy tendrils, rosettes, angular meanders, shells, and laurel sprays. They have a distribution concentrated in the west (see Price, 1991, pp. 72-3, pl. 18b,c). This beaker is further distinguished by having a free-blown tooled base rather than a mould-blown one, as with a beaker found at Pompeii (cf. Beretta & di Pasquale, 2004, p. 218, no. 1.55).
