Terracotta neck-amphora (jar)
Attributed to the Group of New York GR 517
early 5th century B.C.
H.: 20 1/8 in. (51.1 cm)
Obverse and reverse, on the shoulder, two winged figures, Erotes?
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.
