The Cup of the Ptolemies (French: Coupe des Ptolémées), also known as the Cup of Saint Denis, is an onyx cameo two-handled cup, or kantharos. The cup, decorated with Dionysiac vignettes and emblems, was carved at some point in Classical Antiquity, probably in Alexandria. Eventually, it found its way into the treasury of the French kingdom, before it was donated to the abbey of St. Denis. During the Middle Ages, it was used as a Christian chalice, and lavish mounts were added, with Latin inscriptions. In 1804, the cup was stolen, and the mounts were lost, although the cup itself was recovered. It is now in the Cabinet des Médailles at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris.

  • La coupe des Ptolémées est un canthare (ancien vase à doubles poignées) constitué d'un camée monolithe de sardonyx, conservé au Cabinet des Médailles de la Bibliothèque nationale de France à Paris. Jusqu'en septembre 1791, la coupe des Ptolémées faisait partie du trésor de Saint-Denis. Elle fut volée le 17 février 1804, retrouvée enfoui dans un jardin du bourg de Rozoy-sur-Serre le 14 novembre 1804 mais sans ses ornements carolingiens en or et pierres serties. En 1634, elle était estimée à 25 000 livres (pour comparaison, le calice de Suger était évalué à 1 200 livres à la même époque).
