This type of drinking cup, depicting two hunting dogs chasing a hare, was popular in Roman Britain during the third and fourth centuries. Made primarily in the Nene Valley around the present day Peterborough, the dark slip glaze finish made use of materials from the Romano British Iron industries in the area.  These pots were distributed widely throughout the province of Britannia and are found extensively on Hadrian's Wall. 


Earthenware clay


Approx 165 mm tall, 130 mm diameter 


As with all my Museum Quality Replicas this pot has been made, as the original would have been,  entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tool that the Roman makers would have used.
