Primarily a red-figure shape, the Type B cup comes in shortly after the invention of the technique and was never popular in black-figure. The bowl of the cup passes directly into the stem without interruption, the shape of the foot is a torus, and there is usually a small chamfer on its top surface near the edge.
Hauptsächlich eine rotfigurige Form, die kurz nach dem Aufkommen der rotfiguren Vasenmalerei entstanden ist. In der schwarzfigurigen Vasenmalerei war diese Form nie beliebt. Der Gefäßkörper der Schale geht nahtlos in den Stiel über.
Βασικά ένα σχήμα του ερυθρόμορφου ρυθμού, η κύλικα τύπου Β εμφανίστηκε λίγο μετά την εφεύρεση της ερυθρόμορφης τεχνικής και δεν υπήρξε ποτέ δημοφιλής στον μελανόμορφο ρυθμό. Το σώμα του αγγείου συνδέεται με μια συνεχή καμπύλη με το πόδι, που απολήγει σε μια δισκοειδή επίπεδη βάση, που συνήθως έχει μια μικρή λοξότμηση στην άνω επιφάνειά της, κοντά στην άκρη της.
