Images of the Bothmer fragments

In March LM noted that Christos Tsirogiannis had linked fragments of an Attic red-figured cup from the Bothmer bequest to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, to fragments in Rome attributed to the Euaion painter. It was not stated how Bothmer had acquired the fragments.
