On one side is a quadriga shown frontally, with the horses’ heads turned in profile, the two at the center turned inward, the others turned outward, forming a symmetrical and balanced composition. The bearded charioteer is also shown frontally, wearing a high-crested helmet and a long white chiton with red straps, together with a hoplite in a high-crested helmet, holding two spears. On the other side is a departure scene with two warriors standing in the center between an old man with a staff and a woman. The nearer warrior is fully armed, in greaves and a low-crested Corinthian helmet, holding two spears and a circular shield with a triskeles as the blazon. Beside him stands an archer, barely visible, wearing a soft cap, typical for a Thracian or Scythian. For a similar treatment of the subjects, both of which were painted multiple times by the Antimenes Painter and his Circle, compare the neck-amphora in the Fitzwilliam Museum and another in Toronto (note especially the frontal-faced charioteer), nos. 68a/b and 124a in J. Burow, Der Antimenesmaler.
