Archaic Greek Period
Neck amphora. Nearly complete: some minor restoration. A) Athena, at left, mounting chariot (quadriga) which is proceeding toward right. Behind chariot is a lyre player, presumably Apollo, in profile facing right. In center, behind horses, is an unidentifed female figure facing Apollo. B) Departure of warrior(?). In center is a male figure wearing a Phrygian cap. He evidently is carrying a helmet, a round shield and a spear. Facing him to left and to right are, respectively, a female and an old man.
