"DUELLING HOPLITE WARRIORS  
Possibly the heroes Ajax and Hector.  The pair wear the standard gear of the hoplite (heavily armed foot-soldier), but carry the outmoded 'Boiotian' shields with cut-out sides, which suggests they are mythical characters.  The inscription above may be 'Aiantos' ('of Ajax'), badly copied and reading from right to left.  
"Neck-amphora -- a finely painted and unusually large example.  Attic black-figure.  By the Antimenes Painter.  About 525 BC. " ...

"BLACK-FIGURE PANEL AMPHORA
Greek: last quarter of 6th century B.C.
Ceramic ...
One of the basic shapes of Greek pottery was the amphora, a large, two-handled vase used primarily to hold wine or oil.  The panel scenes on either side of this amphora depict armed warriors engaged in battle.  The chief scene probably shows the Greek hero Achilles fighting over the dead body of Antilochus with the Trojan hero Prince Memnon.  To either side stand the warriors' mothers, as mourning figures.  The scene has a heraldic grandeur and a sharply pointed sense of tragic dignity."
