Terracotta neck-amphora Bolsena Group c.200 BCE The modeled frieze depicting the Battle of Greeks and Amazons consists of seven figures repeated as the scene circles the vase. Identical friezes appear on at least six other amphorae from Orvieto or Bolsena. Several of the groups are derived from Greek relief sculptures such as those found inside the Temple of Apollo at Bassae, which are from a long frieze now in the British Museum.
