This rhyton of the replica treasure set is shaped as a young ram with slightly grown horns. Its neck is of conical shape and ends with a down-turned rim covered with floral decoration. The head is masterly modelled. There is an opening in the animal’s mouth for pouring the liquid. The handle ends with the body of a lion whose forepaws rest on the mouth-rim. The neck is covered with high quality relief decoration consisting of four figures: two maenads entranced by dancing, a man and another woman. The inscription in dots above their heads says that these are the God of wine and merry-making Dionysus and the Nymph Eriope.
The technique used for this replica is molding with brass. Then the brass is hand-carved to form fine details of the vessel. Next step is covering the brass molding with liquid nickel to provide a stable and durable subsurface for the final finish. The final finish cover of the object is made with a pure gold in a special bath, which creates the glamorous and exquisite look of the replica treasure. The replica made with brass molding and gold finish is heavier than replica made through the “galvanoplastic” technique.
