This photograph—taken by Matthias Kabel in 2006, of an amphoric container from ancient Greece—depictis images of a Hoplitodromos (a foot-race of armor-bearing soldiers). 

The amphora was created, circa 550 BC.  Today it is maintained by the Staatliche Antikensammlungen - State Collection of Antiques, in Munich.
