The Golden Cup is an inn in Tear. The image on the sign looks nothing like a dice cup.

Mat and Thom enter the inn their first night in the city searching for Egwene, Nynaeve and Elayne. They find Comar who Gaebril has sent to kill the girls; he is cheating at dice against the inn's patrons. Mat tries to unmask his cheating but wins the toss, despite using the loaded die. The two fight and Comar is killed. The innkeeper rushes Mat and Thom out of the inn saying he will cover up the death, telling the Defenders of the Stone that a red-haired man with gray eyes killed him.

(Reference: The Dragon Reborn, Chapter 49)


"You must go. You must. Before the Defenders come. I will show them the dice. I will tell them it was an outlander, but a tall man. With red-colored hair, and gray eyes. No one will suffer. A man I dreamed of last night. No one real. No one will contradict me. He took coin from everyone with his dice. But you must go. You must!" Everyone else in the room was studiously looking another way. (The innkeeper; The Dragon Reborn, Chapter 49)
