Classical Campanian AmphoraYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
A Campanian red-figure neck amphora, attributed to near the Chequer and Dirce Painters, dated ca. 380 BCE.
On one side a battle scene is depicted, identified as a scene from the Trojan War featuring Achilles fighting a Trojan warrior to the left, and Penthesilea attacking a fallen warrior on the right. The scene makes use of the Greek convention of heroic nudity, in a dynamic scene of detailed bodies contorted in sophisticated poses. Particular attention is paid to the weapons and armour, with the grand shield of Achilles rendered as formidably large. The crest of Achilles is painted in white, and his dory spear is detailed with a counterweight iron butt.
The reverse depicts a nude youth, ambiguously gendered, reclining on a pillar, wearing a wreath or diadem. Across is an ornately dressed woman bedecked with jewellery, wearing a decorative himation that reveals the contours of her body. She offers a garland or piece of jewellery. Between the two figures is a goose.
