This black-figure amphora is decorated with a frieze of dancing satyrs and maenads. It was made in Athens between 540 - 510 BC and the decoration is attributed to Painter N. The amphora itself is signed by Nikosthenes the potter.
Note the handles are not the more usual rounded form. Instead, this amphora has ribbon handles.
