ISLANDS OFF THESSALY, Peparethos. Circa 361-340 BC. Chalkous (Bronze, 14 mm, 1.99 g, 1 h). Head of bearded Dionysos to right, wearing ivy wreath. Rev. Π-Ε High-handled Kantharos from which grow two vine tendrils with a bunch of grapes hanging from each; above, ivy leaf. BCD Thessaly II 798. BMC 1. Rogers 559. SNG Copenhagen 359. Traité IV, 768/770, pl. CCCII, 5 & 7 (but 770 misdescribed as having a beardless head of Dionysos). A very pretty example with a glossy black patina. Minor traces of corrosion, otherwise, about extremely fine.

From the Vineyard collection, ex Giessener Münzhandlung 90, 12 October 1998, 235.

The kantharos was a small two-handled cup for drinking wine. Although metal examples have been found, most were made of pottery. Several spectacular examples with bases that deviate from the normal slender pedestal mount exist. These have the heads of satyrs, maenads and other gods as a base atop which rests the cup.
