Terracotta Panathenaic prize amphora

Attributed to the Euphiletos Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 153

Obverse, Athena
Reverse, footrace

The Euphiletos Painter was trained in the black-figure technique. It is interesting to compare the firm, deliberate incision in his works with the looser, freer line of artists like the Berlin Painter. The footrace is one of the earliest known events in the Panathenaic games.
