The dating of the chariot is supported by the dates
of the two Attic black-figure kylikes found in the same
excavation. Reliefs on the chariot box illustrate three
episodes in the life of Achilles or some other warrior
or hero. Also depicted is a woman, possibly Achilles'
mother, Thetis. On one side, the hero fights with Memnon
or some other warrior. On the other side, the hero is
depicted in a winged chariot.
