Electrum Goblet

AO 21814
Sully room 11 showcase 3 (2)
This goblet decorated
with bull-men overpowering buffaloes
is made out of electrum,
a shiny alloy of gold and silver.
When heated, it glistens magnificently.

 “There was something like the look of electrum* ,

out of the midst of the fire”

Ezekiel 1:4 
*Lit.: a vision or a source. Glittering, a word interpreted in various ways. Greek: of amber; Latin: electrum. Thompson, note h.
