Olympia 3D Amphora


ca. 522 B.C.

Attributed to Rom av.JC

Obverse, gladiaskator with flame.
Reverse, gladiaskator carrying jars.

This amphora is a masterpiece of Greek vase painting, as it combines many elements of Athenian culture in an artistic expression of the highest quality. The form alone produces an impressive effect. Thanks to the symmetry and scale of the obverse, it offers a carefully composed three-dimensional surface that lends volume to the subject.

The date and place of discovery of this amphora suggest that it was produced to decorate the Gallo-Roman amphitheater of Lugdunum (Lyon).
