Terracotta neck-amphora of Panathenaic shape

Attributed to the Princeton Painter

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 155

Obverse, Athena
Reverse, flute player

The absence of the official inscription, from the games at Athens, and the reduced size indicate that this was not a prize vase. The decoration of the obverse, however, was clearly modeled on one. The reverse shows a young flute player standing on a table and performing as another youth and two men listen.
