- Curator's comments
For parallels regarding the subject matter, see Acropolis 590, Graef, B., Zahn, R., Wolters, P., Hartwig, P. and Langlotz, E., Die antiken Vasen von der Akropolis zu Athen. Berlin 1925, pl. 27.
Beazley suggests that the vase may be a neck-amphora but given the glaze on the interior section of the vase, that seems unlikely.
Almost certainly from the same vase as Heidelberg, Antikenmuseum, I59.
