My favorite amphora! Ajax and Achilles (from Homer's Iliad) playing a dice game

Contributed by Erin Koren

Not all ancient Greek vases were the same. Do you know the difference between an amphora and a krater? This link will help you out. Each different vase shape had a different function depending on the size, placement of handles, decoration, etc.

Panathenaic amphoras were awarded to winners of the panhellenic games. They featured Athena on one side holding her shield and spear and the event played on the reverse.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
