John Boardman, Greek Sculpture Late Classical Period, fig.10.1(K Eliakis)

Large fragments of this sculpture survive. They are of Amazons fighting with Greeks, almost certainly at Troy, since the east pediment shows the Sack of Troy. There are sylistic differences between the two pediments indicating they are the work of different artists - this is confirmed by evidence from inscriptions.
