Neck Amphora (en), amphore à col (fr), Halsamphora (de), anfora a collo (it), αμφορέας με λαιμό (el)Additional labels


An amphora where the neck joins the body at sharp angles instead of a smooth curve. The neck and the body are offset, meaning that the curve and shape changes radically where the neck meets the shoulder.
Amphore wo der Hals deutlich vom Körper durch einen scharfen Knick statt eines fließenden Übergangs abgesetzt ist.
Ένας τύπος αμφορέα, στον οποίο ο λαιμός διακρίνεται σαφώς από το σώμα. Σε αντίθεση με τον ενιαίο αμφορέα, το συνεχές περίγραμμα του αγγείου διακόπτεται στο σημείο όπου ο λαιμός ενώνεται με τον ώμο του αγγείου.
