Description
Two-handled, stout-bodied jar with a short neck and wide mouth. Decorated in red-figure on black-glaze. Side A: an Amazonomachy scene, with a naked Telamon on the left attacking Andromache on her horse, with a fleeing Amazon to the right. Side B: three draped men, the centre one bearded, the others youthful. On the neck is a band of diagonal palmettes, carefully executed. Below the scenes is a band of meander and saltire crosses.
