Permanently exhibited at the Benaki Museum as a Mycenaean vase of the Late Helladic II-IIIAI period (15th-early 14th century BCE). Its authenticity is still a matter of discussion among scholars.

The decoration of this object of prestige and social status with hounds is related to the hunting, an activity that constitutes an ideal means of replicating power and authority. Made from gold.
