Hard to tell from a pic, but assuming it is a cup used for drinking, whether their favorite beverages or for religious rites, and looking at the size of the handle, you’d have to estimate the overall size of this cup at at least ten inches high by eight inches across.

That’s a lot of weight in solid beaten gold. So here’s to those hardy Englishmen of 1500 BC.
