Description: Side A: Athena Promachos; Side B: Nike Crowning the Victor, with the Judge on the Right and the Defeated Opponent on the Left. The figure of Athena is portrayed in an Archaistic style. The particular use of Nike figures atop the akanthos columns flanking Athena allow scholars to date this vase to precisely 363/362 BCE.
