This phiale comes from the Armaziskhevi archaeological site in Georgia and dates from the 2nd century CE. The medallion of the phiale features a goddess — Fortuna or Amalthea — with cornucopia. Separate parts of the relief are gilt. The creator of this piece likely used a Roman mold. (Georgian National Museum, Tbilisi)
