: amphora

: Athenian black figure panathenaic, non prize amphora. It has a circular base leading into a regular body with a wide neck and the remains of a black painted rim. It has two black painted looped handles attached from the top to the body on opposite sides. The bottom third is painted black. Black-figure panel decoration on the body: on one side there is the goddess Athena with aegis (cuirass), helmet, shield, represented striding forward aggressively, brandishing her spear, flanked on either side by a Little Owl perched on a tall column. On the other side there are two boxers fighting, flanked by their 'trainers' with a thong or a taenia in their hands. On each side of the neck of the amphora there is a palmette chain in plain black gloss with red on the cordon below.
