Bowl with Floral Decoration
The Persian conquest of Egypt in 525 B.C.E. led to a vogue for metalwork in the Persian style, such as these animal-shaped handles and fluted bowls with floral decorations on the base. All of these objects were discovered in Egypt; the silver pieces were discovered together with a large number of objects as an offering at a temple of a foreign goddess.
