c.2nd/3rd Century A.D. A nice large Roman buff terracotta single handled Drinking Cup excavated in London. A nicely shaped cup with flat pedestal base, tapering up to a bulbous body with an in-turned rim. This item is just one of a number of assorted Roman artefacts excavated from the same site in London c.1939 and hails from an Amateur Archaeologists own private collection amassed during the 1930's and all the items also once formed part of a Museum display as various display signage and labelling accompanied the collection. All items in this particular Roman group were unearthed at a depth of 24 feet below Western Union House, 22 Great Winchester Street, London during re-inforcement work to a basement air raid shelter. Cup intact and whole with some very minor nibbles and a couple of feint hairline cracks (stable and non-detracting) to rim otherwise in nice condition. A good sized and nicely provenanced Roman cup from Britains capital, 105mm tall x 125mm diameter (147mm at handle).
