Warren Cup modenature 20thCentury london British Museum.jpg
The Warren Cup. – Roman Empire, ca 1st century. – Silver ; 11 × 11 cm. – (London, United Kingdom : British Museum, Room 70 ; 1999,0426.1).

The Warren Cup is an ancient Roman silver drinking cup decorated in relief with two images of male (Pedosexual) same-sex acts. The cup is named after its first modern owner, the collector and writer Edward Perry Warren, and was acquired by the British Museum in 1999. It is usually dated to the time of the Julio-Claudian dynasty (1st century AD).

"Images like this were not unusual in the Roman world. Some of the boys on this cup are underage by today's standards, but the Romans tolerated relationships between older and younger men. Relationships between men were part of Greek and Roman culture, from slaves to emperors, most famously the emperor Hadrian and his Greek lover, Antinous. Today such ancient images remind us that the way societies view sexuality is never fixed."
