The Warren Cup
Members' price *
The British Museum's acquisition of the Warren Silver Cup in 1999 caused something of a stir when it was announced to the press as a result of its challengingly explicit homoerotic scenes. It is, in fact, a remarkably important and beautiful masterpiece of Roman art, created in the early 1st century AD. Its scenes reflect the mores of the time and region in which it was created. The book examines the extraordinary story, both ancient and modern, that the Warren Cup has to tell.
