Panathenaic prize amphora, with black-figure decoration, produced exclusively as prize vessels for the Panathenaia. Some examples bear the inscription "ΤΩΝΑΘΗΝΗΘΕΝΑΘΛΩΝ" meaning "[I am one] of the prizes from [the goddess] Athena". They contained the prize of oil from the sacred olive tree of the goddess Athena for the winners of the athletic contests held to honour the goddess, and were evidently kept thereafter, and perhaps used to store wine, before being buried with the prize-winner. They depicted goddess Athena on one side and the athletic event on the other side, e.g. a scene of wrestling or running contest etc.
Our vase is based on the famous black figure panathenaic amphora Attributed to the Euphiletos Painter (530 B.C.) which is exchibited in the metropolitan museum of art in New York City.
