Black-figured pottery amphora. Under each handle, two patterns of spirals. (a) Achilles slaying Penthesilea: Achilles steps to right, bearded, with long tresses, fully armed, high-crested helmet and short striped chiton, and has beaten down the Amazon queen Penthesilea on one knee, and plunges spear into her throat. She has a high-crested helmet with cheek-pieces and serpent in relief, short diapered chiton, over which is a pardalis (leopard skin), sword and shield, and looks back at him, thrusting vainly with spear; a stream of blood gushes from her wound. In front of Achilles is inscribed: ΑΧΙΛΕΥΣ; in front of Penthesilea: ΠΕΝΘΕΣΙΛΥΑ. On the left is inscribed: Έχσηκίας έπτοίησε; on the right: Όνητορίδης καλός. (b) Dionysos and Oinopion: Dionysos to left (facing left), bearded, with hair looped up and wreathed with ivy, long white chiton and embroidered himation, holds in left hand vine-branches, and with right gives a cantharos to his son, Oinopion, who stands facing him, nude and beardless, his hair looped up with a myrtle wreath, holding an oinochoe in right hand. In front of Dionysos is inscribed: ΣΟΣΝΟΙΔ (retr.), Διόνυσος; above Oinopion: OINOΠION; behind him: Όνητορίδης καλός, as on (a). It was Hand made in Greece. Our clay items are Hand painted and not fastly made, nor are they cheaply made of substitute materials such as resin. We stick to the materials and methods used by ancient Greeks and use only top quality ceramics and paints. Do not expect "perfection" as if these clay vases was not mass produced from a machine like many are, but by hand.
Note that sizes may vary a little cause everything is Hand Made
