Did You Know?

A neck-amphora is a type of amphora with separately constructed neck and body.

Description

Small in scale but finely painted and well preserved, this amphora depicts two common but unrelated subjects: the departure of warriors (side A) and Dionysos and two satyrs (side B). The warriors include an archer, identified by his bow and quiver full of arrows, and a heavily armed foot-soldier, wearing helmet and greaves and holding a spear and shield emblazoned with a horse protome. The archer faces a woman, while the warrior stands between two men.
