condition

Intact and generally excellent. A few insignificant nicks on the edge and top of the rim, and one on top of one handle. Some slight cracks and/or scratches and abrasions on the glaze above the foot. The painting itself is generally in very good shape. Note large area the left of the bema which appears have lost its red glaze, and this effects the right leg and foot and ends of the lion skin of Herakles, as well as the feet of the woman at his left. The painter seen to have made errors with the red hemline of her dress, which spills out behind onto the baseline. Another apparent error on Side B is the missing black glaze on the right foot of the warrior at right, where there is also a very slight pre-firing dent. The greaves on both warriors are not treated the same, but this could be intentional. The lid is also intact, and has some misfiring and very minor defects. Several inventory numbers appear under the foot of the vase and under the lid. The lid does not appear to have been made for this amphora, but there is a good chance it was associated with it in antiquity.
