Wild Duck Stirrup Cup

Wild Duck Stirrup Cup

Rhyton (Drinking Vessel) in the Shape of a Donkey Head, c. 460 BCE. Greek, Attica. This drinking cup could not have been set down without its contents spilling. It is fashioned after the head of a bridled donkey with a white muzzle, teeth, and ears. Like the naked satyr chasing a fleeing maenad on the vessel’s neck, the donkey belongs to the retinue of the wine god.
