Part of the British Museum Objects in Focus series, an introduction to the Warren Cup.

This book tells the unique story of this exquisitely crafted Roman silver drinking cup, engraved with erotic scenes. Created in the first century AD, and after being condemned to undeserved obscurity for too long, the cup shows a pair of male lovers in explicit homoerotic scenes that reflect the mores of the time and region in which the cup was created and used.

The book celebrates how this important and beautiful masterpiece of Roman art challenges contemporary views to look beyond current social and religious environments in order to appreciate better the art itself.

Beautifully and masterfully created, the Warren Cup is a special addition to the Museum’s collection.
