For stock levels of all of our mould-blown beakers, see this page.

Found throughout the Roman Empire, the decoration on this beaker features twelve victors' wreaths and two victors' palms.

The Greek inscription LABE THN NEIKHN translates as: 'Seize the Victory' (which is likely to have been intended in the sense of wishing good luck to the drinker rather than implying that the vessel is a type of sporting trophy).

The quantity of recorded finds suggests that Nike beakers were a popular vessel, with at least four variant types known.

Our reproduction is based on examples from the Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio, Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York, The Hermitage, St. Petersburg, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and several others.
