Terracotta neck-amphora (jar)

Attributed to an artist not far from the Antimenes Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 155

Obverse, between eyes, horseman and youths
Reverse, between eyes, lion felling deer

The figures on this neck-amphora are traditional, but their deployment reflects the experimental and innovative tendencies in Attic vase-painting during the last quarter of the sixth century B.C. Note the narrow clay-colored stripe beneath the picture panel; together with the black stripe just above, it helps to anchor the decoration on the body.
