The vase is in fairly good condition, having suffered some damage to the surface along the fractures.
Side A: Greek. The Greek moves to the right, his shield held on his left shoulder, his spear held ready in his right hand. He wears chlamys, greaves and a domed hat, and he has a straggly beard. Side B: Persian. The bearded Persian lunges to the left, his shield over his forward-extended left arm, his right arm thrown back as he prepares to strike with his axe. He wears a patterned 'body-stocking,' a short, decorative tunic, soft shoes, and a soft cap with dangling pieces flopping over his ears. A quiver hangs by a cord draped over his shoulder.
