Terracotta Panathenaic prize amphora

Attributed to the Kleophrades Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 153

Obverse, Athena
Reverse, chariot race

In addition to stylistic criteria, the device of a flying horse on Athena's shield suggests an attribution to the Kleophrades Painter. The motif seems particularly appropriate here because the artist conveys the speed of the chariot by the position of the horses who appear to be flying over the ground.
