Beautyful Achaemenid bronze phiale offer bowl, 500 AD
A very large and nice quality bronze phiale, Achaemenid Empire c. 600-330 BC.

The type is typical for the classical Greek-Persian period and was perhaps invented by the Persian culture and further developed by the greeks. An elaborately designed bowl, hammered bronze, a large omphallos in the center and an open rim

Size: 150-160 mm. wide and c. 65-70 mm. high.

Condition: Choice The patina is an even dark green and chestnut brown. There's a few minor bumps and a possibly ancient repair seen as a green spot in the side. Some uncleaned verdigris and dirt still on the surface.
