Parthian Gilt Silver Phiale

2nd century BC-1st century AD

A sheet silver phiale with ten broad flanges, flared rim, central repoussé gilt panel with beaded border and hexafoil motif. 485 grams, 26cm (10 1/4"). Very fine condition.

Provenance
From a private family collection, London, England, 1981.

Footnotes
The Greek phiale was originally a libation bowl which was used to make religious offerings, typically of wine mixed with water and occasionally honey or milk. The liquid was poured from a wine-jug (oinochoe) into the phiale, accompanied by a spoken prayer, a portion tipped out as an offering and the remainder drunk by the supplicant.
