A neck-amphora is a type of amphora with separately constructed neck and body.
The two sides of this neck-amphora both depict warriors—one preparing to depart for battle in a four-horse chariot, three doing battle on the other side. Two of those battling hold spears and so-called “Boiotian shields,” with cutout sides, while the vanquished warrior holds only a round shield, apparently having lost his weapon. The departing warrior also holds a round shield, but the faded devices of these round shields differ on the two sides (a rosette and a bucranium, respectively), suggesting that the warriors carrying them differ as well.
