These are copies of the two gold cups found in Vaphio, in the south of Greece, near Sparta, when excavating a tomb. The originals were made approximately in 1500 B.C. - one of them describes a scene of capturing a bull, the other the tying of the bull. The originally 10.8 cm high cups were parts of the Cretan culture now they are in the National Museum of Athens.
