The Goblet from Megara came to the Archaeological Collection as a gift from Mrs. Leposava Aleksić Zarić, from whose legacy to the National Museum Kraljevo, out of 213 items, 87 belong to archeology. It is one of the most important exhibits within this legacy, because it is a well-known type of Hellenistic vessels, of high quality that were produced from molds, in centers such as Athens, Delos, Antioch, Pergamum and Alexandria. It dates back to the Hellenistic period 3rd-2nd century BC. It is hemispherical in shape and decorated with a motif of leaves densely arranged in four rows. At the very bottom is a rosette in a circle. The vessel is made of fine clay, coated with a matte brown coating. The shape and vegetable motifs indicate that this specimen probably originated in Athens.
