Ca. 420-380 BC
A late Attic bell-shaped krater featuring two main decorations. On side A, two soldiers are depicted in heroic nudity, facing each other while holding spears. Their bodies are depicted in an extremely schematic manner, with the torso’s muscles represented frontally. To the left, a tall Nike is seen holding a patera as an offering. On side B, three figures wearing cloaks are depicted, maintaining the pattern of one figure on one side and two on the other. The drapery is represented with simple vertical black lines without three-dimensionality. A stylised laurel wreath is under the rim.

Provenance:London private collection; formerly, ex. Harlan Berk Gallery, Chicago, IL.
