Black Figure Pottery



Amphora and Lid by Exekias, The Toledo Museum of Art

Exekias was active in the second half of the 6th century BCE. He is well known for his depictions of battle scenes, but also for another of his amphorae which shows Ajax and Achilles playing a board game.

There is a great Athenian vase exhibition at the Getty Villa right now - check out their website.
