In ancient times, special occasions like a king taking throne, weddings, religious ceremonies or feasts were celebrated with grand festivals. These festivals are illustrated in detail in the embossed walls and vases, hieroglyphs and seals in centers of the old world. At these festivals the king and queen or the married couple to be offered their gods and goddesses gifts food and drinks. Among these festival pieces the holy presentation pot, a spirit cup called rython, especially attracts attention. This cup made of clay, silver and gold, is embossed with eagle figures, a bird being the imperial symbol. Cup foundlings of this era are exhibited at acclaimed museums like New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.
