This idiosyncratic vase reflects influence of both black-figure and red-figure prototypes. The general shape and the ornament on the neck are derived from Attic black-figure neck-amphorae. The decoration, however, reflects the freer drawing of red-figure during the first decades of the fifth century B.C.
