The Onesimos-Euphronios cup returns to Cerveteri

The Onesimos-Euphronios red-figured cup that was returned from the J. Paul Getty Museum to Italy will be placed on display in Cerveteri (ANSA), the find-spot of further confiscated pieces. The cup is inscribed with a dedicated showing that it had been placed in a sanctuary of Ercle at Cerveteri. Additional fragments are known to have been supplied by Giacomo Medici. (For collecting history see here.)

Will this allow further information to emerge about the Met fragments?
