This Greek vase replica depicts Achilles and Ajax on one side and the return of Kastor and Polydeukis on the other. A belly amphora does not have a distinguished neck; instead, the belly reaches the mouth in a continuous curve. This shape was rarely used after the mid-5th century B.C. Topped with a terracotta lid.
