Group E is the name given to a workshop of painters active during the middle of the sixth century B.C. Exekias, the greatest black-figure artist, began among them, and it is to him that the Group's name refers. Like the neck-amphora by Exekias himself, this one has an ample shape and decoration on the shoulder.
