Attic band cup of the "Little Master" around 540-535 BC AD

The term of “Little Master” has been given to this group on the ground of the extraordinary capacity to miniaturize the devices of the decoration, mostly in a reserved band but also on the lip of the so called “lip cups”. The cup is ornated with a siren between a deer and a ram. The details are hightned with added red and white paint. The piece is remarkable for his unusually small dimensions.
Broken in few fragments with some painting's retouches, otherwise good condition
