Lombard Drinking Horn

Drinking horns were popular with many Germanic cultures during this period, but this Lombard example from a high status grave in Sutri, Italy, is made from blue glass rather than the typical horn. It shows how the Lombards in Italy adapted Mediterranean techniques, such as colored glass, to suit their own tastes. Circa 500-700 CE. (The British Museum, London)
