A Kylix was a type of vessel, similar to a goblet or chalice, with two handles so that it could be held with both hands. These vessels were usually intended for Greek festivities, and were therefore used for drinking wine.
The decoration on these pieces is usually idle, as they could be appreciated when drinking.
