Kraters with decoration in two superposed friezes occur rather rarely in the second half of the fifth century B.C. Usually the two zones are comparable in height. Here, the lower zone functions as a predella. The combination of subjects is noteworthy: athletes training in the primary frieze, abduction scenes below.
