Did you know?

Originally from a different kylix, this foot was used in an ancient repair.


Removed during an extensive conservation treatment in 1990, this foot was broken from a different kylix and used in an ancient repair. It likely once belonged to a differently proportioned cup than the one to which it was long attached, as seen by its thicker stem and smaller foot diameter.
