Classical Greek Period
Nolan amphora. A) Apollo, in frontal pose, facing left, phiale in right hand stretched out over an altar with volutes, lyre on left side, hand behind strings, otherwise unsupported. B) Artemis standing, facing left, fully draped, holding up oinochoe in right hand. Quiver on back, projecting above left shoulder. Intact. In very good condition save that area around Artemis is glazed a different color from the rest: a different solution of glaze?
