Hypobibazon Class (en)


The Hypobibazon Class denotes a group of Athenian black-figure vases made around 510 BCE. The name derives from an amphora discovered in the Athenian Kerameikos (Athens, Kerameikos 158; BAPD 301866) showing a warrior about to mount a horse. The shape associated with the class is a belly amphora (Type B) with rounded handles and feet. Painters of this class prefer daily life scenes. Findspots are sites in Athens (Agora, Acropolis, Kerameikos) and Eleusis.
