This vase was already old-fashioned when first made; its shape was preferred by earlier generations of vase painters.
Formerly owned by John Bateman, Esq., this amphora provided a name for the Bateman Group, five amphorae likely decorated by a single painter. On either side, a reserved panel holds a carefully composed scene: four striding soldiers above a fallen warrior; and four dancing satyrs around the wine god Dionysos. Similar scenes appear on other Bateman Group vases, as well as in the much larger body of work attributed to the more well-known Lysippides Painter.
