This beautiful amber-colored glass wine cup (diam. ca. 15 cm), with its fine horizontal grain on the edge, is an early example of moulded glass produce from the Levant (ca. 100 BCE - 100 CE; APM inv. no. 14.023). It had to be placed in a (wooden) foot as the rounded bottom makes it unstable on the table.
