The celebrated Lycurgus cup, one of the finest examples of Roman glassware made in the 4th century CE. The cup is an example of the diatreta or cage-cup type where the glass was cut away to create figures in high relief attached to the inner surface with small hidden bridges behind the figures. The cup is so named as it depicts the myth of Lycurgus entwined in a vine. (British Museum, London).
