The paper presents an unpublished silver amphora with zoomorphic handles shaped as winged horses. It explores the entire class of similar metal amphorae with zoomorphic handles (including isolated handles) from the Achaemenid domain and its neighbouring areas, as well as their clay parallels, and their iconographic occurrences. Some possible Greek bronze parallels are also discussed. The vase weight is understood as following the Achaemenid monetary standard. Finally, the vase is attributed to a Lydian workshop and dated ca. 500 BC.
