Crossword Genius

Round top of trophy, see revolving article (6)


I believe the answer is:


'round top' is the definition.

'trophy see revolving article' is the wordplay.
'trophy' becomes 'cup' (cup is a kind of trophy).
'see' becomes 'lo' (archaic word meaning 'look!').
'revolving' is a reversal indicator.
'article' becomes 'a' (indefinite article).
'lo' back-to-front is 'ol'.

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for cupola that I've seen before include "Rounded dome" , "fireplace" , "Small dome on a roof" , "Domed ceiling" , "St Peter's roof" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
