About this objectThe size of this miniature terracotta vase suggest it was likely used as a votive offering. Votive offerings were dedicated to a god or gods, in fulfilment of a vow or in gratitude for divine aid.
The vase itself takes the form of a Laconian chalice with two handles that curve from the wide mouth to the middle of the vase where they attach slightly off centre.
