Trojan Silver Depas Cup, Early Bronze Age, Troy Level II, c 2300 BC
A depas cup was a vessel with two handles, often used in libations and made of precious metals. Homer mentions them in the Iliad.
Troy II was the first settlement where evidence of town planing can be seen. The city of Troy at this time is thought to have covered about two hectares. It had a strong fortification wall with gateways flanked by massive projecting towers. Inside were large structures with stone foundations and walls of brick with wooden beams. A massive fire destroyed the citadel, but it was subsequently rebuilt.
The site of Troy is at modern Hisarlik in northwest Turkey, south of the southwest end of the Dardanelles / Hellespont and northwest of Mount Ida.
