Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses about shape, ornament, attribution, date, dimensions and condition of Attic black-figured vases: amphorae, krater, hydria, oinochoe, lekythoi, alabastron, and cups. The relationship of the painted decoration to other Greek painted vases, religious or social institutions is also discussed. In his study of the correspondence between the statues represented standing on columns flanking Athena on Panathenaic prize amphoras and the archons of Athens, Eschbach groups the Detroit vase with Thebes A 377 and Berlin, Staaliche Museen 3980 as belonging to the tenure of Philokles, 392/1 B.C., although the Detroit vase lacks an archon inscription.

Keywords:Attic black-figured vases; Attic Panathenaic Amphora; hydria; krater; lekythoi; oinochoe
