A chariot group from a Mycenaean amphorae crater found in Cyprus by the Swedish Cyprus Expedition in 1930, and now (1964) in the Museum of Mediterranean Antiquities in Stockholm. It is one of the earliest representations of a chariot group on a vase. The representation is stylized. Chariot races were very popular in the Mycenaean period, both in the Aegean world and in Cyprus. They are mentioned by Homer in the funeral games in honour of Patroclus. In art they often appear on funerary monuments from the Mycenaean period onwards.
