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.

*Note Refers to amphorae that were filled with olive
oil from the sacred trees of Athena, given as prizes in
the Panathenaic Games. They were neck amphorae
with a large, broad body sharply tapering downward
and a relatively thin neck. The standard decoration
included images of Athena on one side and the contest
at which the prize was won on the other, usually
in the Black-figure technique.
